Hello Don,

You can write and compile apps using Qt 3.0.5 or whatever and still use KDE 
and Qt 2.3.1.

To compile apps with Qt 3.0.5, put this in your /etc/profile file: 

QTDIR=/usr/local/qt305 ( or wherever you put Qt )


I've compiled several apps with 3.0.5 and they have all run on my
KDE desktop ( I'm still using 2.2.2! )

Hope this helps, Jim
