I updated my KDE4.2 (release 102) a couple of days ago and now the folderview plasmoid is not working. It just gives an empty window. I open the configuration and change the folder and that window is also empty. It is like folderview no longer sees any folders on my computer.
I install the quick view plasmoid to check and it is the same, empty.
I have searched for a folderview configuration file, but could not find it. Does anyone have any ideas about this?
I’m still having some problems with the folderview. It seems that Customizable Weather Plasmoid (cwp) is causing some of it. When I have CWP active and re-boot or logout, the folderview goes empty. I reset everything and then re-boot or logout without CWP and everything is fine.
I will contact the person that maitains CWP about the issue. I’ll see what happens.
im running 11.1 64bit
what video card are you using ati or nvidia?
i have an ati
i read through all that and i havnt tryed compiling it myself but i did awhile back when it first came out but have always used opensuse repos once i seen it in there maybe i will try compiling it myself
Havoc65 i think I figured it out. At Least for me. I have a dual screen setup. Putting the CWP on the second screen (non primary) kills folderview.
I went through and created a new user. Kept CWP and folderview on the primary screen. Logged out half a dozen times, and it was fine.
I renamed my .kde4 folder and logged in as myself. put CWP and Folderview on primary screen and everything was great. I moved CWP to my secondary screen like I wanted it and logged out/in and presto, no more folderview.
