    Default K application launcher and screensaver

    Hello I have two simple questions... first off any ideas as to why the k application launcher doesn't save any of my favorites? and number 2. I started off with kde3 but decided to try 4 well I was having problems with kde3 apps popping up in 4 (two powersaves two kmixers ect) so I deleted everything to do with kde3 except when my screensaver comes into effect I am prompted by the kde3 screensaver program to enter a password to log back to my session. how do I fix these problems..also it seems that alot of kde apps are preventing me from doing what I want such as configuring the panel and such how do I fix this?

    Deleting all that kde3 stuff without sufficient knowledge is probably not good.

    Try this from outside X
    Ctrl-Alt-F1

    mv /home/username*/.kde4 .kde4old
    mv /home/username*/.kde .kdeold

    alright did that and it changed the look of things abit it didn't solve my "application launcher" problem. The screensaver problem is fixed, but my kde application launcher is still not "recording" my favorites....any ideas?

    You are aware you add and remove items to the favs section of the launcher, it's not a history as in Start - Recently Used

    You mean change from Hundred Hrs to 12 hr clock. I'll have to get back on this. I have to log out. Maybe someone else will spot it and answer.

    Just curious, did you remember to click apply before rebooting?
    Overkill somewhat but I rebooted, not relogged WFM.

    oh yes,sorry it's called military time here but yeah, I figured it out...turns out I was using the kde3 setting and not 4 just went to configure desktop then regional&language settings and it worked...would be nice though if the kde guys just put that setting in the digital clock settings where it belongs, but anyway onto other issues...once I explore them a little more,and am still unable to figure them out I'll post...but thanks for your help
