    Question KDE 4.2 Plasma (Panel & Widgets) crash

    I just upgraded from KDE 4.1.3 to KDE 4.2, on openSUSE 11.1. Initial session was okay, but after logging in second time and trying to add a 'widget' to the panel (after unlocking it), the panel crashed and all the panel icons and widget got spread out over the desktop.

    I tried this script as recommended by some on this forum, but did not help:

    Code:
    kquitapp plasma && rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma* && plasma &
    How can the Panel & Widgets be repaired ?

    Default Re: KDE 4.2 Plasma (Panel & Widgets) crash

    OK So you are trying 4.2 again.

    Logout to CLI and do rename of the .kde4

    mv /home/*username*/.kde4 .kde4_old
    Leap 15_KDE

    Arrow Re: KDE 4.2 Plasma (Panel & Widgets) crash

    Prior to trying a reinstall (moving the .kde4 directory, which I had already done once before), I tried out the following, as somebody had earlier reported success with it (Suse screw up my panel? - openSUSE Forums).

    The code and results are in the box below-


    Code:

    [1]+  Done                    plasma
    user@linux-4a48:~>

    This restored a basic panel & then I was able to add the extra shortcuts & widgets as before.
