Thread: Plasma forgets layout

    Default Plasma forgets layout


    It's as the title says really. Every time i log out and in again Plasma
    plays a kind of Russian roulette. Will it remember it's layout or will
    it not. Often it does not and the panels get all mixed up. Is there
    anything i can do to prevent this kind of behaviour?

    I think it gets better in 4.2 beta (the unstable repos), a possibilty is that something is corrupt or uses an older format so removing your plasma rc files and starting fresh may help, it helped me
    ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc
    ~/.kde4/share/config/plasmarc

    The beta is more stable than a final version? That's ridiculous. Very
    strange to ship an OS with a flaw like that.

    let me rephrase - for me I always had this issue, even after my upgrade to 4.2 but after removing the rc files and recreating them it's been much better - probably more to do with the recreation of the files but I found 4.2 to be better in general then 4.1 and have interest in reverting back to 4.1

    So where are those files and how does one recreate them?

    just erase or rename them - to recreate you might just make a change in your appearance and panels or definetly by restarting kde

    if you have another DE installed like gnome or kde 3 log into that
    browse your files and in home you should find .kde4 dir rename it to
    .kde4old
    then try logging back into kde4

    What will that do? Go back to the default layout?
