I use kde4 on my server box due to some audio problem with gnome. In gnome I am not getting any audio. I broke my head for long time, installing, removing and configuring pulse audio to no avail.
So, I moved to kde4 and it was easy enough and my audio started working without pulse. I do not want pulse as there is no ac3 pass thru support which I need for home teather.
I used to run vino on gnome to remotely access my comp. KDE has krfb, so I used to do auto start it when I login.
Problem with krfb is that it hogs the system when you are remotely accessing, cpu spikes to 100% and system kind of becomes unusable with lot lag.
I loved vino so I did the following and now I can use vino on KDE.
1. Stop krfb
2. Remove krfb from startup.
3. open konsole.
4. type vino-preferences
5. Configure vino and you are all set.
I am assuming you have vino installed, else install it from your repository.
Now no more lag, and no more cpu spike when using remote desktop :-)
