    Default Taskbar widgets keep comming back

    I'm currently running openSUSE 11.1 and KDE 4.2. Whenever i restart my computer or log off to switch users I get new widgets added to my taskbar. Mostly I end up with 2-3 application launcher widgets. I delete them from the panel but they just keep coming back. How do I get rid of them for good?

    * DtotheJ

    open a console and
    kquitapp plasma && rm .kde4/share/config/plasma* && plasma &

    This will kill plasma, remove the config files and restart plasma (and recreate default config files)

    Didn't work. When plasma restarts it still has 3 application launchers.

    Ctrl-Alt-Backspace

    Will bring you out of X
    from your user login at CLI do:

    mv /home/username*/.kde4 .kde4old

    (*username) above you must put in there your username without the *

    You loose your settings because it starts a new .kde4 folder - But you can drag in stuff from the renamed old folder that won't affect plasma

    Sorry for my newbness lol. I think its fine now, I restarted and I only have one application launcher. What I did was logout then push CTRL-ALT-F7 ( I think it was F7 might have been F3 or F2 ) to get to the konsole screen then typed in rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma* and then hit CTRL-ALT-F7 to get back to the log in screen and everything seems good. Thanks for the help.
