Description Claude Jones 2008-08-02 06:11:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008071615 Fedora/3.0.1-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.1

Description of problem:
Yakuake always opens with the keep window open when it loses focus setting checked. I always uncheck it. The next time I open yakuake it is checked again. I seem to recall a provision to save settings in older versions, but, I can't find any such capability now. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yakuake-2.9.3-1.fc9.i386

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start yakuake
2.Get into settings and uncheck the keep window open when it loses focus setting
3.Close yakuake and reopen it; the setting will be checked again

Actual Results:


Expected Results:
The setting should carry over to the next time I open the program, or there should be a feature to save the current settings. Other settings seem to 'stick' such as custom fonts and appearance settings.

I cannot reproduce your problem (on a x86_64 system at least), if I uncheck "keep window open when it loses focus", it's still unchecked when I run yakuake again.

Maybe you should try to delete (or move) your current yakuake settigs file (~/.kde/share/config/yakuakerc) and see if the problem persits.

Claude can you confirm?

Are you sure that issue appears when you close yakuake ? 
Or does it when you logout from KDE, without closing yakuake before ?

I can only reproduce the error when I logout from KDE, but not when I close yakueke myself (see, bug #477736).

OK - you hit the nail on the head. I have just confirmed that if I close Yakuake properly, the setting sticks. I have Yakuake set to auto-start when I log in to KDE, and I never closed it properly after going through the settings on this machine. I can only presume that I stumbled on the solution on previous machines without realizing it, so I was confounded when this happened on this one. Thanks for your help
