Thread: Problems after one click upgrade of KDE 4.2 to 4.3.5

    Default Problems after one click upgrade of KDE 4.2 to 4.3.5

    Last night, I upgraded the KDE version on a new installation of 11.1 on another computer and everything went fine. But today I tried upgrading my computer from 4.2 to 4.3.5 with the one click installer, and in addition to having many dependency issues that I thought I got figured out, everything is messed up on my desktop. I still have the 4.2 panel, and my background is messed up (the background I had set has been replaced with a checker pattern), the lizard icon for the application menu is just a grey circle with a play button, all of my icons and my desktop folder that used to be on the desktop are gone, and nothing is showing in the system tray.

    I would like to get KDE 4.3.5 working, where can I even start to figure out what I need?

    O.K. I got most of it fixed, turns out it didn't install a lot of the components and going into yast and manually updating installed all of it. But the application launcher icon is still the grey play button and not the opensuse theme. And I get an error when i close the konsole stating a crash due to a segmentation fault. i also have that on the other computer.

    Here is the output of the command you asked for:

    The only corrections i would make are these

    change Update repo to priority 99
    change Packman repo to priority 20
    Do unconditional update in kde4 stable and lastly in Packman

    You may have to start a new .kde4 to get the desktop back

    or delete the following

    .kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc
    .kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc
    .kde4/share/config/plasma-desktoprc
    .kde4/share/config/plasmarc

    logout immediately and back in

    Well everything seems to be fine now except the kickoff application launcher button, if I could just get that back to the open suse theme. I fixed the konsole issue, I needed to install the new version.

    Edit: I figured out how to change the icon now so it's all good.
