    Default opensuse 13.2 no desk workspace after resume

    Hi,

    Yesterday the PC go in sleep mode, after résume, i get the login screen as usual, and after login the kde desk stay empty, with the green opensuse 13.2 wallpaper and no icons.
    Right and left click gives nothing.
    The problem is still the same even if i restart the PC.

    Thank for your ideas.

    Elie

    Sounds like corrupted KDE configuration files. Try adding a different user and see if they have the same problem??

    Ok good

    First see if perhaps your activities are set wrong. Right click desktop (That work??) and select activities and try different ones.

    If that does not fix things then you need to remove/rename ~/.kde4 (~ is short hand for your home note the period before the name)

    You can't be running KDE logged in as your self to preform this (like changing tires while driving)

    So log out (right click desktop- leave)

    Once at the log in screen press CTR-ALT-F1. Log into the terminal as yourself then

    mv ~/.kde4 ~/.kde4.bak
    reboot

    This will take things back to the default openSUSE KDE desktop

    Sorry for not having replied instead.

    You're right, after having followed your indication I could find my kde desktop.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I have no luck, today i restart the Pc and the problem is still here.
    I think there is a problem with activity, there is one undefined that I couln't erase and when i try to create a new one, kde create not the one I choose.

    On the desktop which doesn't work you can't make a right click, you have no bottom bar and no possibilité to create a new activité or add a panel. So you can't do nothing you have only the green opensuse wall papier.

    You must have another activity selected as current before you can delete another. The widget in the activity list should show a wrench and another icon. select the other one and it should prompt you if you want to delete.

    Removing ~/.kde4 should also reset all activities. Got no clue what may create a bad activity. Perhaps one of the templates is bad.

    Check the file ~/.kde4/share/config/activitymanagerrc It may hold a clue and may also allow you to remove the bad activity

    If it keeps coming back I don't know

    i found the problem, it's not kde but .bashrc, i put a lign to call node js server a startup.
    This line prevent kde to start , is it a normal behavior ?

    How can i add a program at startup in a normal way ?

    Where did you put the line?? and exactly what. Did you add && at the end to start in what ever in a new thread?? Otherwise it may stop the start up process.

    What program to start a GUI or some other??

    It is always best to show use the exact code
