Hi Miguel,

I am not using Sun GNOME & KDE (too old).
Find latest versions instead: http://www.blastwave.org/packages.php

Regards ;-)

BTW. As a part of Sun's KDE distro *must* be a DTlogin integration peace:

   1. check paths with: pkgchk -v SUNWkde 2>&1 | grep config | grep dt
      (if Sun's package has SUNWkde name - otherwise use real one.
      Commands should show if anything was installed for DTlogin
      start-up integration)
   2. check content of /etc/dt tree and find any file related to KDE
