Thread: Kate configuration save/restore?

  1. #1

    Default Kate configuration save/restore?

    On 10.3 if I went into Settings->Configure Kate and made changes (e.g. enable the plugin tab bar) the next time I invoked Kate these setting changes where there ready to use; any configuration changes made under 11.2 do not appear to be saved/restored. Does anybody know how I can restore 10.3 behaviour?

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure whether you wanted to transfer your KDE3.5 settings to KDE4. If so, you needed to copy .kde/share/apps/kate to .kde4/share/apps/.

    Otherwise, check that any hidden files are read/write. When I copied my files from my backup DVD back into /home (because I had decided to format /home to ext4), they were all set to read only.

    The plugins are listed in ~kate/sessions/; so you need to check to see if there are any plugins listed there.

    this is what I did to get plugins to be loaded when kate was
    restarted

    with kate closed (crucial that it's closed)
    edit the following file with vi (or maybe kwrite) changing false
    to true for those plugins you want loaded

    ~/.kde4/share/apps/kate/sessions/Default%20Session.katesession

    this only worked when opening and closing kate, when I restarted
    kde4 it no longer worked
