Description of problem:
knotes can't resume correctly after logout, only a non-clickable
vertical line filled rectangle icon box left in systray.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start knotes and write anything in it
3. Login again
Actual Results: A non-clickable vertical line filled rectangle icon
box is left in systray
Expected Results: knotes should be accessable.
Confirmed on Fedora Core 3 x86_64
Also I would like to add, all notes added to knotes are lost upon restart. In
short knotes always starts with one initial blank note or when restored from a
previous kde session doesn start correctly (non clickable icon in kde systray).
Since remembering is what knotes is all about this pretty much makes it useless.
knotes bug, don't know if already fixed on upstream.
1. Close knotes;
2. Check if you have a file ~/.kde/share/apps/knotesnotes.ics .
3. If so, open a terminal and write:
ln -s ../knotesnotes.ics notes.ics
(in other words, make a symlink named "notes.ics" on ~/.kde/share/apps/knotes
pointing to ~/.kde/share/apps/knotesnotes.ics)
4. Load knotes again;
5. Write something, close knotes and load it again to check if it worked.
Looks pretty clear what happened and how this bug was introduced... Let me know
if this worked for you.
This has supposedly been fixed upstream according to bugs.kde.org. Shall
RedHat give us the KDE 3.3.2 bug/security fix release?
Doesn't this also affect RHEL 4 too?
This simple patch below should help:

this bug has been fixed in FC4/FC5 current release (kde-3.5.3). You should
please update to the new version. Thanks
