    It is often better to full disclose the problem rather then asking for help on a solution you guessed at
    Hi
    If btrfs is used for /home then it is possible, snapper has experimental support for ext4, not sure where that project is at...

    Well sure but I'd think there may be problems there unless they break the backup set down to each and every user so that each has their own snapshots. For a multi user system you would not want to roll back all files in home you would need to do it on a user basis. You certainly would not want to default the configuration

    In response to the advice from tsu2, I found History via YAST, and extracted details as submitted in my reply 17.
    As I requested there, What does it indicate, and can the situation be remedied, given the information.
    Although it may be of general interest, repeating details w.r.t. BTRFS and Snapper, are not directly helpful,
    as they are not available to me; and from some of the feedback, I doubt that Snapper is the best way to deal with
    such a problem; There must be a more Elegant and/or, simpler technique for dealing with such a basic 'problem'
    (Simply, it should NOT be a Problem)

    If you do not use BTRFS (it was available in 13.1) then there is NO roll back. You can reverse and installs from yast or zypper. If it was an upgrade then you may need to blacklist the package(s) to keep from receiving them again. But again you leave us in the dark on what you did the packages you installed and the actual problem you see in KDE. And in any case adding or removing packages should not effect the users desktop setting in any way and in any case all desktop settings are handled and stored in your home and package installation will not directly effect the desktop And in any case even with BTRFS you cna not rol back your home settings. You fix things by reversing what ever you did. Since we don't know what you did we can not help you reverse things. There is simply no generic way to roll back user settings. You can take it back to day one simply by renaming the ~/kde4 directory (note must be done as root with the user not logged in). If you want less draconian measures you must give use more detail.

    Accept that I am classically ignorant, w.r.t. computer functionality.
    It was my belief that all the information has been revealed.
    I downloaded Bangarang (through YAST), and before Install, I had to accept changes, which I did.
    It was THEN, that I lost some Widgets from the Panel, as well as Sounds (notifications)
    Later, Bangarang was removed, but the altered default settings remained.
    I cannot see how much clearer I can explain the situation, and from above, my reasoning.

    As I am basicaly a non-believer and because your desrciption is very scanty, I tried to gather more information and post that here. It may others help in helping you.

    As Bangarang was not available through YaST on the standard openSUSE 13.1 repos, I used https://software.opensuse.org/search to search for it. Found it in the KDE:Extra repo.

    Added the repo and installed the package bangarang using YaST. I had not to accept any changes like you say you have. It installed without even adding any dependancies needed.

    So, from this point on your description and my experience differ. You could at least try to describe the changes you had to accept.

    That is what I did, but did you not get a (triangular sign) 'warning' that there may/will, be changes?
    From memory, suggested that there may be Conflict issues.
    The reason that I can't reproduce the event, is that those changes have been made, therefore ...........
    So, as I have stated previously, it is through THIS process, that I (must) have accepted Changes, which
    caused the loss of my previous set-up.

    Now that some more information is trickling in. I understand that you were installing with YaST, that YaST produced a Warning, that you did not quite understand what the warning was about and that you, instead of trying to find out (e.g. by asking here), just clicked OK.

    As a result something happened on your system where YaST thought it worthwhile to ask you first if you realy knew what you are doing, because it would have such and such effects. But you can not remember what the warning was, thus do not know what happened after you clicked OK.

    My guess (only a guess!) is that the warning was about Changing Vendors. When that is true it would mean that you have conflicting repositories where the installation of bangarang triggered a conflict and warned you.

    We know already that you have the KDE:Extra repo added to your standard repos. Probably you have more. Please show us your complete list with
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    PS, I do not know if you know, but:
    Please use CODE tags around copied/pasted computer text in a post. It is the # button in the tool bar of the post editor. When applicable copy/paste complete, that is including the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt.
