Ignore the above reply. I noticed KDE isn't working as smooth like Gnome does on my Dell XPS m1330 laptop. Kmix could not find any of my microphones, not the internal or external. Trying to ad my bluetooth headset didn't work as well and after spending time trying to find a solution to the above problems I just thought why do this when gnome simply works? Also feel it is difficult to find around in KDE menu. why is system settings under both application menu and computer menu? It's a bit confusing and also it takes up to much of my memory. Only have 2 gb memory, but feel it is slower than gnome.
I like the look of KDE better than Gnome tho, but the Gnome environment can be changed.
With that said I say bye bye to KDE and hope it will be easier to use in the future
