Thread: kde 4.2 widgets

    Default kde 4.2 widgets

    i am having trouble with kde 4.2 on opensuse 11.1

    i have widgets on my desktop that whenever i delete they return after reboot (see the screenshot included) all those file ones were links to locations in the filesystem. so the widgets on monitor 1 are bad but monitor 2 is fine.

    i am not really sure why the settings arent saving to my profile correctly.

    also apparently activities does it too because it keeps bringing back an activity that i didnt make (probably the default one, its called "plain desktop" and has the same widgets as the desktop i use) i can right click on this activity and delete it but then it comes back again on reboot.

    that isnt as much of a problem since i dont use activities (they are definitely not designed for people with multiple monitors, it is completely unusable with 2 monitors because you could potencially get the widgets on each monitor switched when playing with activities.

    any ideas how to fix this?

    First the latest kde4.2 is 99 so you could try updating.
    If this does not work you could try resetting the wigets with

    kquitapp plasma && rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma* && plasma &

    I was having the same stuck widget problem as well as my primary sound "failing" at logon about 50% of the time and falling back to the secondary, which didn't work at all.
    I installed 99 and both the unremovable wiget and the failing sound appear to be fixed. The widget I had stuck was gone on the next login and the sound has worked so far...but I could just be getting lucky on the sound. More testing definitely required there.
