    *.tgz for slackware are usually binaries. You don't untar them.

    you do:

    installpkg *.tgz

    and then do that to all the KDE packages. Then run xwmconfig.

    Ok, thanx, i got kde going, i like it, but i have one little problem....how can i make the Konsole, the KDE terminal emulator, to color the text when i use a command like ls without allways specifing the --color string?

    hello,
    alias ls to be ls --color . Most people put a line like that in their ~/.bashrc file.

    pbharris is right. If you always want colors, you can just put:

    alias ls='ls --color=auto'

    in your ~/.bashrc file or if you just want it temporarily: you can type in: alias ls='ls --color=auto' in your terminal (present one) and you should be able to see color.

    Note: After you put that line in your ~/.bashrc file, make sure you just source it once: source ~/.bashrc
