Very good guide. It will be very helpful if someone tells about having the secret package; freetype2-32bit.x86-64.rpm !?

Not clear if I have to build package. Based on this I don't need compile anything. Right???

Thanks, as a relative newcomer to GNU/Linux I've never quite been able to get fonts looking spot on, this seems to have done the trick nicely :)

I'm behind an authenticated firewall, so updates from a command line don't work for me. Yast works, but it is all new to me. When I try adding as the server name on a new http Installation Source with /download/GNOME:/Community/openSUSE_10.2/GNOME:Community.repo
in the Directory on Server field it complains "Unable to create installation source". What do you suppose I am doing wrong?

Thank you for this howto.
We need like this howto for openSUSE 10.3, are you 'll write about it soon?

Than you again..

It's exactly the same procedure for 10.3 (the presentation of the options in the KDE dialogs are just slightly different, but it's the same configuration values to set).
