Hello there!
I did fancy your desktop a lot! Very lively, indeed! ;] Just a question: is that "Warty" ou "Hoary"? I tried to install KDE on both, but all I got was 3.3.1 on "Hoary" and 3.2.something on "Warty". Besides, on "Hoary" it failed to install kdelibs-data, so things got really unstable... Also, I did what was told on Debian users' mailing list, in order to activate composite effect through xorg but it failed as well. All I got was every newbie's nightmare - only a black screen running a terminal. Any advice is gladly welcome. :]

Hi! Thanks ;)
For installing kde 3.3.2 I've just installed warty, and then change the repositories to Hoary, and ONLY download KDE,it's dependecies and xorg 6.8.1.
Then I downloaded xcompmgr fron here http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=16114 and changed the config file of xorg as is said here http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Xorg_X11_and_Transparency.
PD: I recommend you also to install the translucency and shadows patch, xcompmgr usually crash, but with that patch it is very stable.
Also if the KDE install doesn't work you can try to install kde 3.3.1 with debain unstable repos, I've done that but it could be a mess.
