Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 38107
desktopconv deletes files without creating a backup
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:43:58 EDT
Upon start up it will inform you about old kde 1.x
configuration files and recommends to remove them.
Which is fine, but what does it do!?
(1) It removes all 2.1 config file and all your configurations
are gone (in particular all my ppp settings were gone and
I had no backup, thanks a bunch for that!)
(2) Not only this, IT WILL EVEN REMOVE FILES WHICH ARE TOTALLY
UNRELATED TO KDE!!!!!!!!!!! In particular, it will remove ALL
files in ~/Desktop.
Why doesn't it AT LEAST MOVE THE FILES TO THE TRASH!!!
See the reply on testers-list for details - this happens only when updating
from a non-clean 2.x install to the new packages.
Not very nice, but inevitable.
I'll move the files to the trash rather than killing them completely in the
Fixed in 2.2-0.alpha2.2
