Hello every one, just installed yesterday
Linux arch 3.2.11-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Mar 15 09:16:03 UTC 2012 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
it runs awesome, even with kde base installed, and I even have effects, nepomuk akonadi and everything I use on my other computer, of course I dont get all effects nor games,
I just have 3 minor issues, at the moment
Clock: It's not ok, in rc.conf I have UTC, I just reinstalled so is the only OS in the PC, I unselect UTC from kde time module, then select mexico, and it doesn't work, nor the "auto update from internet" one, maybe is somehing in the BIOS
Language: I intalled the correct package for spanish, and yet english and spanish are mixed all over the place, I have spanish as prefered language under kde settings and:
# # /etc/rc.conf - Main Configuration for Arch Linux LOCALE="es_MX.UTF-8 UTF-8" DAEMON_LOCALE="no" HARDWARECLOCK="UTC" TIMEZONE="America/Mexico_City" KEYMAP="es-cp850.map.gz" CONSOLEFONT= CONSOLEMAP= USECOLOR="yes" MODULES=() UDEV_TIMEOUT=30 USEDMRAID="no" USEBTRFS="no" USELVM="no" HOSTNAME="arch-linux" DAEMONS=(dbus networkmanager !network !dhcdbd syslog-ng @alsa)
And mouse flickering: When in openbox the mouse works as expected, but under kde it flickers when moving it, I have looked in Gentoo, Arch and all over the place and I still can't figure out why this happens, I don't know wich cursor theme is used as default for openbox, but I cant see it under cursors in kde settings, maybe a gtk cursor works, but how to install one in kde?
Thank you very much!!

The clock issue has fixed itself, but the other ones still elude me, I've just installed arch from net iso + KDE in another partition and it is the same.
Reacting here after reading your other post I can only say that I could answer when I had KDE installed, have tried it, but there is so much buggy behaviour in KDE that this is probably a KDE issue.
Have you tried to ask the question on a KDE specific forum?
You can find out what cursor theme you are using in openbox by using lxappearance; go to tab mouse cursor and there you can see which theme is active atm.
Getting your questions answered here at ArchBang Forums
Please! Always give hardware info, if there is a chance that 's relevant: #lspci -vnn
