The OP could more easily have oS 12.1 and KDE 4.7.2
than Chakra by 
s/11.4/12.1/ in /etc/zypp/repos.d/*repo, then 'zypper
ref; zypper dup' from 
any root tty login.

Felix, I don't know what ".sig" is yet, so I hope I
don't make that mistake again!

So fellas from the top, my interest now it trying to
get a kde (apparently 4.7) working with openSuse 12.1
when I can buy a distro DVD.

Right now I'm on dial-up and I have to conduct these
kde-linux messages via webmail to use my registered
address.

Because I can't get a functional kde (apparently 4.6)
display, I don't have a kde version to give. As I
recall from the boxes with xorg.conf files the
openSuse 11.4 DVD distro has kde 4.6.0, but that's a
guess.

The kde display problem I've have is more general
than a specific hardware combination. Something like
the composting Felix mentioned is more likely the
problem.

Since the LXDE desktop knows how to configure a
display with my hardware, shouldn't I be able to
somehow capture that information and feed it into kde
to get a display?

After an install from the openSuse 11.4 DVD, I'm left
with a blank screen or a huge cursor. From there I
can only cut the power to force a reboot. Typing 3
into the grub menu gets me to level 3 as root.

With the boxes that had xorg.conf files, I can copy
them into /etc/Xll and reboot. In those two cases
(boxes I don't have access to now) kde displays just
fine.

What I was hoping for here was a formula for me to
capture the display information LXDE is using and put
it into a format like xorg.conf that kde can use.

Of course knowing what LXDE is doing with display
information is not a specialty of this list. Also my
interest is now in openSuse 12.1 rather than 11.4, so
maybe I can't get there from here. Frank K
