    Default Losing keyboard shortcut 'Application Launcher' in KDE4.1


    I installed KDE4.1 last week, made keyboard shortcuts for some programs,
    changed the default for *Application Launcher* (the green lizard/start
    button) from Alt+F1 to Ctrl+Esc, and have lost any keyboard shortcut for
    Application Launcher since then. Neither reassigning it, to default or
    otherwise, nor changing it manually in the text file
    -/home/<me-myself-i>/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc- while in *init
    3* have worked.

    What I would really like is 1-key access to that menu button; it seems
    impossible so far, as the configuration through Personal Settings while
    in KDE doesn't accept Meta (the Windows key) alone as a shortcut. But
    lacking that, how can I get a keyboard combination to stay?

    I've never been able to get a keyboard shortcut for Application Launcher
    on KDE 4

    Found 'this' (http://tinyurl.com/dxtd3a) unsolved Kubuntu bug.

    Thanks, freedguy. In that bug report, some reported regaining keyboard
    access only after deleting -/home/$USER/.kde/share/config/- folder.
    This would be -/home/$USER/.kde*4*/share/config/- on Suse 11.1, I
    suppose. I'll logout to console and try it. I notice that several
    files in that folder have modify times of the time I booted/logged in to
    KDE4:

    Why would they get modified everytime KDE4 starts? And why just the
    application launcher, because modifications to the panel remain, and
    other created keyboard shortcuts work fine?

    Yeah, deleting the entire config folder restored all defaults. I'm not
    looking forward to reconfiguring everything, only to reset it again when
    a keyboard shortcut goes wandering.
