Hating KDE4… Again, if only fleetingly
Having just sent 100 pages to the printer and have it print out duplex 1-up, with the second side turned the wrong way I am again upset with KDE4. Not KDE4 per se, but the fact that when I moved to it, stuff got lost, including kprinter (one of the most valuable apps in the history of human endeavour). This means that printing options are localised in each application and none of the apps remember defaults. The 50ish wasted pages that I will now have to consign to the wastebin were because I didn’t reset firefox defaults after having just printed something else in firefox with the changes made. The lack of kprinter really makes printing tedious and when things like this happens, substantially lessens my KDE experience.
I hear tell that kprinter manages to live on in Kubuntu. Maybe I should move come the next desktop update (due six months after end of life of this OpenSuSE version)?
