On snakedrivers instructions to regain the taskbar i deleted both ./kde and ./kde4 but ./kde4 keeps popping back into the folder , so it doesnt stay deleted like ./kde does… is it suppose to do that
if not why isnt./kde4 staying deleted?
in .kde4 are all your settings, you delete it, you lose settings. the reason this keeps coming back is creating a place where to put these new settings, it will come back, just not contain the old data. don’t worry…it’s meant to happen (and i don’t mean losing the task bar). this is one reason why i have switched back to kde3.5.9
There is no need to delete the entire KDE4 directory just to regain the taskbar, it is enough if you delete the files ‘plasmarc’ and ‘plasma-appletrc’ from the directory ‘.kde4/share/config’. This way most of the settings of the other applications like kmail, etc. are preserved.
