    But you need to do it from out of X or from Gnome would work.
    CLI method:
    Code:
    mv /home/username*/.kde4 .kde4_old
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Of course I'm using both a factory system and the kde 4.3 beta repos so I'm not sure if this input really indicates anything.

    The only problem I have is that when I choose to shutdown or restart it goes to the login screen then I have to choose shutdown or restart from there and then it works. Not sure if this is kde or 11.2 related.

    Edit: It only happens on my laptop, the desktop is fine. Also not looking for help, just giving my input.
    I found out it was a kde problem. I logged in as root because my /tmp folder was so full it wouldn't allow me to login as the regular user (now have /tmp to be cleared on boot). And I found that when I restarted as root it would let me restart without reverting back to the login screen first. I then deleted my .kde and .kde4 folder (could have just renamed it, I know) and my regular user worked fine! I'm trying to recustomize everything to see if I can find the culprit, although I think it was the desktop effects that set it off.

    Take Care,

    Where do I set /tmp to clear on boot? Is there ANY reason to save anything in that folder?

    Open Yast then Under the System category choose /etc/sysconfig Editor

    Use the search function down on the bottom right and search for tmp.

    It should be the first one "CLEAR_TMPS_DIRS_AT_BOOTUP"

    highlight it and then choose Go To.

    Set it to "yes" (without quotes) and then click Ok.

    Take Care,

    Could any of You set the background to globe and just switch between the globes and look at how much memory plasma-desktop takes??
    I managed to hit 1GB memory usage (but i could more )

    P.S. Already reported

    Yup, I was correct. With my current setup (Intel 945GM) when I enable Desktop Effects, it inhibits my ability to shutdown or restart without having the login screen come up first and then having to shutdown and restart from the login screen. I'm guessing this is just an 11.2 MS2 issue since I haven't seen anyone else using KDE 4.3 Beta 2 complaining with the older systems. I'm going to report it in the 11.2 MS2 thread as well. Not sure what else to check to get to the exact root problem of it because I had limited desktop effects enabled.

    Take Care,

    I can shutdown/restart normally using Nvidia proprietary drivers and KDE 4.3 Beta 2.

    Have You tried shutting down/restarting with a new user?
