Which desktop-integration did you install?

The freedesktop  integration works for me with KDE 4.10 on opensuse 12.3.

In in the source tree, you will find 2 parameters dealing
withe kde --

I haven't followed the complete configuration to determine where kde4 is

Also in, you will get to a section with starting comments

"Check whether the Qt and KDE libraries are available."

for more information on libraries needed.

Since both Gnome and KDE now follow the freedesktop specification, that
desktop integration seems to work well for most users.
