KCD won't play cd's

it is possibly trying to access the other device - make sure you have the correct device set in the configuration. What happens when you visit the audiocd:/ location in konqueror? Can you view the contents of the cd? Read write permissions messed up? Are you part of the optical group?

JuK and AAC/MP4

You'd be able to play AAC with 1.3.x if the engine has support for it - the only limitation is collection management isn't possible. The easiest way is to use xine, and with faac and faad packages installed.

i'm not sure if personal messages are available in a stable release yet - you will have to download the SVN development version. If you get this, then you can view messages by looking at the contact tooltip or by setting contact list mode to detailed. You can set your personal message by selecting Online with an away message. away message is the equivalent to personal message in kopete.

Converting wav to ogg and mp3 using Konqueror

Audacity doesn't use the lame executable, but rather the library file, From console, type `which lame`, to see if it is in your path. If no results are shown, locate the file, and add the directory to your path. Failing that, maybe you don't have the actual executable installed
