Thread: openSUSE 11.3 - kde 4.5 SC system tray icons same as kde 4.4

  1. #1

    Lightbulb openSUSE 11.3 - kde 4.5 SC system tray icons same as kde 4.4

    hello, made a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.3 64 bit, and upgraded to kde 4.5 rc and then to rc2. however, on both the occasions, the system tray icons look as they looked in kde 4.4. however, the functionality has changed as it should be in kde 4.5, but the look of the icons hasn't. deleting the .kde4 folder from the home directory didn't work either.

    although, the kde 4.5 look was working well when i upgraded to it from openSUSE 11.2.

    anyone has the same issue or knows a workaround?

    Try installing the upstream branding. That should get the new icons working.

    Take Care,

    Have you tried deleting the .kde4 folder then logging out and back in after switching to upstream branding?

    I usually do this by logging off, then hitting ctrl+alt+f1 to get to tty1.

    Then log in as yourself, not root, and type:

    Code:
    rm -r /home/yourusername/.kde4
    Don't forget the .kde4 or else it will delete your home directory!

    Then I type exit and then hit ctrl+alt+f7 to get back to the GUI log in screen.

    Log in and you should be good to go.

    Take Care,

    Ian

    Hmmm. I'm at a loss then. Usually mine switch over to the KDE 4.5 SC icons when I upgrade too. When you installed the upgrade did you use zypper or Yast? If you used yast did you make sure to use the Switch All System Packages To This Repository feature?

    Take Care,

    yes, used yast and made the switch using "switch all system packages to this repo".... and normally, such things take care of themselves.. are you also on 11.3 64 using kde 4.5 sc? maybe there is another folder which needs to be refreshed...

    Please feb8born, next time please post in the Prerelease/Beta forums when you want to question about levels still not released in openSUSE. More change for you that you meet other testers there. Also less change that people using the official levels will get confused.
