Description dominique 2010-06-15 09:03:04 UTC
Description of problem:
I test the rawhide with kde and with the last update of kde (kde 4.4.85) I lost my setting.
For example I choose a background and two plasmoids, but when I re-start my rawhide I have no background (it's black...) and the plasmoids don't appear on my desktop (but there are marked under execution in "add plasmoids")

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.choose a background and plasmoids
2.re-start rawhide
Actual results:
background is black and plasmoids don't appear

Expected results:
see my backgroud and plasmoids

I think this is a known bug in 4.4.85 , should get fixed in next beta/rc I think

I search on the web, and I saw that on the kubuntu.fr forum (sorry it is in french):
post #842, #843, #844 and #845.

I made that it say and that work...

Basically, the workaround given there is to remove all the activities except for one (through the desktop's "cashew", or "peanut" ("cacahuète") as they call it there ;-) , menu). It's not a real fix though, the real fix will be in the next (pre)release from upstream.

Comment 4 dominique 2010-06-16 06:38:12 UTC
thank for your explanations...
I wait for the next (pre)release, and If that work I close this bug.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

Dominique, can you try kde 4.5.0 from f14 updates-testing and confirm that this bug has been fixed? Thank you

I install the Fedora14-Alpha-rc3 (x86_64) and update kde to 4.5.0.
I choose a background, install one plasmoid (yawp), and after reboot all work fine.
I think that bug is fixed...
