Replying to my own post (sorry):

I tried it last evening.  The applet is similar and will serve the
purpose, except that it is buggy.  Specifically, when I resize and
reposition the "pager" applet, the resize is not remembered across
invocations of KDE.  (If it makes a difference, I start KDE with
"startx" from a VT.)

When I restart KDE, the position is roughly remembered but the "pager"
starts out with a size that of about 1cm square.  Another one is that
once you size it like you want, if you now go to configure it, say,
with desktop numbers each desktop pane w/in "pager", the applet
shrinks a small amount.  Each time you reconfigure it, it shrinks
again, till it is almost disappears.

There are other small bugs having to do with positioning and sizing
but these two are the biggies.  I searched the bugzilla DB and found a
this recent pager bug report:


with replies by you (Rex).

I'm using kdebase-workspace-4.2.0-8.fc10.i386 and friends like the bug

I notice that you don't have the problem using the packages from

I want to try them tonight.  But when I do:

yum update  "*kde*"  --enablerepo updates-testing

it says it wants to install 33 packages.  So:

1) How do I easily revert (rollback) to the current packages if these
     updates break my system?  Is there an easy way short of hand
     de-installing each package and re-installing the current ones?

2a) Which packages do I need to install to test the fix of "pager"?

2b) Will a subset of the updates-testing packages be compatible with
     my current up-to-date installation?
