| Try expanding the "map view" category (or something similar,
| "Kartenansicht" in German ;-) ) in the side bar and selecting
| "OpenStreetMap" in "Design".

| If that menu entry doesn't exist, you probably have too old a Marble
| version (I don't remember when they introduced it - I use KDE 4.3 RC2).

| Four Live: http://home.kde.org/~binner/kde-four-live
My marble version is 0.7.1 on a kde 4.2.2

In the sidebar I have a Theme, where I can choose OpenSteetMap, and thos does 
indeed solve half of the problem, namely zooming in. Still a town of 
population 25.000 not on the map isn't really good enough I'm afraid.

OK, that is about where my service to the KPA community ends :-)
