We're dropping the -kde4 suffixes for packages in Intrepid, so changing accordingly here.

Can confirm this here too.

Gmail loads for me if I give the browser Identification as Mozilla 1.7 (for Konqueror 4.0.3). The gmail chat is not working and I cannot empty the trash or spam messages. More problems in browsing through gmail. But I think it is ok for me..

Making Konqueror not identify as Firefox should make GMail use the HTML interface, it is less fancy but it works at least.

Invalid for kdebase as the default Konqueror renders the HTML interface just fine.

  [ Harald Sitter ]
  * Make Konqueror not identify as firefox, so that GMail directs to the HTML
    interface, which can be rendered properly. (LP: #256039, #178827)
  * Initialise Java properly. (LP: #138736)

  [ Jonathan Riddell ]
  * Turn on cover switcher in kwinrc
