    Default Folderview plasmoid not working anymore

    I updated my KDE4.2 (release 102) a couple of days ago and now the folderview plasmoid is not working. It just gives an empty window. I open the configuration and change the folder and that window is also empty. It is like folderview no longer sees any folders on my computer.

    I install the quick view plasmoid to check and it is the same, empty.

    I have searched for a folderview configuration file, but could not find it. Does anyone have any ideas about this?

    I think I figured it out.

    I opened konsole and typed kquitapp plasma.
    I then removed the <username>/.kde4/share/kde4/plasma-appletrc file
    typed plasma in konsole.

    It reset my plasmoids and panels. It took them back to a default, but my folder is working again.

    I'm still having some problems with the folderview. It seems that Customizable Weather Plasmoid (cwp) is causing some of it. When I have CWP active and re-boot or logout, the folderview goes empty. I reset everything and then re-boot or logout without CWP and everything is fine.

    I will contact the person that maitains CWP about the issue. I'll see what happens.

    havoc65, are you running 11,11.1 and 64-bit, or 32-bit?

    The creator of CWP has responded here:Customizable Weather Plasmoid (CWP) KDE-Look.org

    He used 11.1 32-bit and had no problems with it.

    The author says that he did a fresh install of 11 and kde 4.2.1 and had no problems with it. It looks like it might be problem with the pre-compiled packages.

    He used the source packages to get the plasmoid.

    Havoc65 i think I figured it out. At Least for me. I have a dual screen setup. Putting the CWP on the second screen (non primary) kills folderview.

    I went through and created a new user. Kept CWP and folderview on the primary screen. Logged out half a dozen times, and it was fine.

    I renamed my .kde4 folder and logged in as myself. put CWP and Folderview on primary screen and everything was great. I moved CWP to my secondary screen like I wanted it and logged out/in and presto, no more folderview.

    Do you by chance run virtualbox?
