comment Downloading and installing KDE libraries on Kubuntu 12.04
@Karlson, after looking around a bit I found a way to let QtCreator know of the KDE dependencies. (I don't recall the details; sorry.) And then I tried running some rudimentary code samples from KDE Techbase. They worked except that I had to change all #include <KStuff> to #include <kstuff.h>. I wonder if I have an older version of KDE libs installed. Or maybe Techbase documentation is not up to date.

Disagree about the last sentence, but a very information-rich answer. +1.

I tried Microsoft Reader. It doesn't work. Unfortunately I am not aware of any other .lit readers for Windows either.

comment Mounting ISO in Linux/KDE
This actually made Dolphin crash every time I right-clicked on something. Then I downloaded a service menu that provides a similar script and menus, and now everything works butter smooth. Thank you!

comment Differences between Windows registry and UNIX/Linux approach
@Sardathrion, and how is "inviting discussion" a bad thing? Perhaps the question clashes with community policy as it is phrased, but I am sure it can be objectively answered. As such I will appreciate help in rephrasing it. Apparently genuine curiosity is a bad thing to some people.

@Sardathrion, how is "too many questions" a bad thing? Is it against the site policy?
