Awesome. I got it working. I have no idea why that works but it does. :)

Please note that I have NOT tested the script very thoroughly. It has all the steps I went through to get KDE 4.1 working on my system just not in order but logically it should work. To use it, simply unzip the archive and run ./install.sh and let it do it's thing. If all else fails, it's very easy to install KDE 4.1 manually. There are also a few extra packages in there that I didn't find to be necessary, such as the bash and flux packages and I was experimenting with installing the GCC compiler via slapt-get so those packages are in there also if you want to install them but they are not installed through the script.
By the way, has anyone been able to get Compiz-Fusion working with KDE 4.1?
I followed the directions step by step, no issues what so ever. I reboot and then "startx". I get "/usr/lib/X11/xinit/xinitrc: line 28 startkde: command not found" . So I tried kdeinit4 and this comes up " error while loading shared libraries: libQtCore.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" . Ive been stuck on this for 2 days, any ideas?
Here's the libQtCore.so.4 file from my system. Maybe try putting it in your /usr/lib directory?

I'm having problems getting the desktop effects enabled . It says " Composting is not supported on your system" also "required X extensions (Xcompsite and XDamage) are not available." I have install compiz. Ive been stuck on this for awhile now any suggestions ?
Yes, I have the exact same issue. I'm in the process of figuring it out but I don't have much time during the week to work on Linux related stuff. Here is my thread at the Compiz-fusion forums. I've posted my output of compiz-check which checks to see if your system can run compiz. That might help you. You can download it on their forums, just look around.

still cant get it...........still get error with the GCC
Can you be more descriptive? Exactly what is the error? Also what is your current GCC version? (enter "gcc -v")

i been try this on VMware too........but i got lazy to download 1 by 1 so i download them all in put it in the folder how exact where they are then copy it to the root after that i logout go to fuxbox then i start the process..i will tell if i cant make it to the top...........
thanks for the assistance..............I know my mistake......now i fix it.....working like a charm.............
I've installed everything as per the instructions.
I downloaded each file 1 by 1 and ran the installpkg *, in each folder.
Even installed the GCC file.
The error I am getting now is: Could not start kstartupconfig4. Check your installation. When I run kstartupconfig4 I get the libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_4.2.0` not found error.
Anyone have a work around, as I have NO IDEA as to why it's saying this, when I have followed the instructions given.
Also, needless to say, flux is no longer working either.
Here's output when I run flux:
bt ~ # flux

download this two file and installed this should work fine........
