I am using opensuse 11.1 on my X61 laptop and am currently trying out
kde-4.1. I installed kde from the kde stable repo. My problem is that
after logging in and out or rebooting the laptop, icons go missing on
the panel and the positions get all messed up.
This has been an issue with kde4 from the beginning.
Try re-naming your hidden .kde4 folder to .kde4old
from a CLI login you can do it:
mv /home/username*/.kde4 .kde4old
(username*)= your user name
Login again and you will be in a NEW kde4 user settings. Once it’s
finished loading (it takes a min or 2) Logout again and back in to see
if the icons are going to hold. Otherwise delete the new .kde4 and try
I have had to do this several times in the past.
