Ive benn (lightly) usig F10 for a few things and can confirm the kde
version looks pretty, but a fair bit doesnt seem to work as it should.
The gnome version however, works well and has none of the problems you
are seeing with kde.  I still wouldnt say its a lot better than ubuntu,
probably on a par.

Autodetection in modern X is supposed to be so good that you dont need a
conf file these days ... yeah, right :)
