    Default KDE 4.2 Update Feb 5th - Caution


    Just on the chance that some of you will see this:

    My update of kde4.2 from Factory today seemed to bring in some extra
    features - BUT it screwed up .kde4 (of which I always keep a backup).
    But to no avail this time.

    Had to start again. OK it was set up again 10 mins but it's pain.

    For me the login from update brought in the 'air' default wallpaper,
    left some screwed up icons on the panel and changed my desktop folder
    location from desktop to /home/username

    It's lookin' sweet though.

    That's good to know. Maybe mine is an isolated case.

    I had exact same probs (you helped me with the recreation of .kde4).

    But your description of the problem (air background, etc) was exactly
    what happened to me.

    Yes same background problem here.

    Also, the list of previously selected wallpapers in Appearance Settings
    is gone. But I can live with it

    For me it was the wallpaper & the folder settings that changed
    everything else splash screen, fonts, & colors stuck.
    Simple fix

    Interesting. This seems to be leaving Geoff a little alone. I want to
    know what is different with your setup Geoff. I was thinking it might be
    repo's - I'm using QT44.
    I seem to recall Geoff you might be on QT45?

    What about everyone else? 44/45??
    I wonder if that could make the difference?

    What desktop containment did you use? Folder-view as background, the
    desktop with the cashew in the upper-right corner or the desktop without
    it?

    It happend to me too, I had desktop+cashew and two panels. Plasmoids on
    the desktop were: notes, amarok, weather, flowerpot (google) and
    pastebin.

    I have the QT44
    'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Qt44/openSUSE_11.1/'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.1/)
    and xorg
    'Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.1/)

    Maybe the xorg made the difference

    I'm just in the process of loading unstable factory kde4 in a VM install
    of 11.1

    I tried the qt45 +desktop combo and - forget it.

    I changed back to desktop and 44

    I'll report back when I have it all done. Just for interest.
