    Default Cursor position in Kwrite in KDE4 in openSUSE 11.1


    Hi. It seems Kwrite is now the default GUI text editor in KDE4 in 11.1.
    I am familiar with clicking the cursor in "open space" in text editors
    and having the cursor position itself at the end of the current line.
    From there I can start typing. In KDE4/openSUSE 11.1, if I have the
    mouse in the far right field (in white space) and click, the cursor will
    settle there and auto create a bunch of single blank spaces from the end
    of the current line to the unwanted new position of the cursor. I want
    the cursor to go to the actual end of the line and not to create a bunch
    of new single spaces tacked onto the end of the current line.

    How can I turn this new feature off (or is it a bug)?

    Thanks
    Swerdna

    I just tried this in my Laptop, see sig.

    No issue for me. But I am using 4.2 beta

    Sounds like a bug. Did you check at bugs-kde? I know there were issues
    with kwrite in 4.1.3 but I never came across that.

    I've checked now. Can't find one at KDE or at Novel Bugzilla. So do I
    unedrstand you correctly -- I can upgrade the KDE4 in 11.1 to 4.2 is
    that right? Maybe also I'll try a but report to Novell and while waiting
    try the upgraded kwrite/KDE combo. Might also be easier to uninstall
    kwrite for KDE4 and install kwrite for kde3 may be possible .....hmmm.

    Yes. But it's classed 'Unstable'. Though I find it better than 4.1.3
    Stable.
    There are one or two dependency issues to work thru on the upgrade, but
    it should be straightforward for a Linux guru such as yourself.

    I wonder how you ended up with anything other than 'Normal' in the
    first place.

    containing 7 icons including a Gnome terminal. How Gnome terminal got in
    there is a wonder too

    Is it possible you have either kept /home from previous install or
    transfered settings.

    What happens if you re-name the .kde4 folder (.kde4old), re-login to
    kde4. Should be like a new user session.

    In the install I chose the KDE but before I clicked "everything is
    fine" switch that proceeds with the install, I altered the "Software" to
    include the Gnome DE (via Patterns). That's probably confused the
    install.

    If I rename to KDE4old I get a plasmoid with the contents of /home/john
    in it when I log in again.

    You mean a folder view. That is normal, you can delete it or modify
    what it displays.

    Yes I suppose that's what I mean. I'm content ATM about it all, but
    KDE4 is certainly a trial! When will it become as good as KDE3 I wonder
    -- another 6 to 12 months perhaps. But it should be worth the wait
    because presumably all this was done for a good reason.
