  1. nice, work for KDE as well

  2. Finally I found this website –

    Instructions crystal clear! Perfect HOWTO !

  3. Say, trying to get this going in 11.1. I tried just changing the url and it seems to add a repository but then it doesn’t install. Did you add these packages to those repositories yourself? Been using gentoo since ’03 but pretty sure opensuse is now the distro for me… so just gonna compile it here in a little I guess 🙂

  4. After trying for sometime to get this to work, it seems it’s now redundant

    Just put the below information into evolution
