Working great!! Thanks!

One small issue:
When booting I see this message:
/etc/rc2.d/S20kde-guidance-kde3: 31:
not found

On Hardy the package guidance-backends contains: 

It appears guidance-backends-kde3 does install:

I don't know exactly what is going on here, I could look more into it if 
that would help. Should I create a bug for this in Bugzilla?

A bigger issue seems to be language support. When I install and use 
kde-i18n-nl now, the menus in System Settings are still English. In 
Hardy, installing that package brings in two other packages 
automatically and those menus are in Dutch (but even there the two tabs 
stay in English). I will create a bug for this in Bugzilla, because I 
guess this won't be easy to solve.

Feature requests :)
- Use the kdm theme from Hardy
- Disable kpersonalizer on first log-on similarly to how it's disabled 
in Hardy

I saw you did this for Konqueror now, but is there a reason to not do 
this for every package?

Thanks a lot for all your efforts! I think the Karmic with KDE 3 will 
become better than ever :)
