Re: KDE 4.5.5: "Folder View" mode of desktop doesn't restore on login
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
If I'm reading you correctly, after a kde restart (logout/login), the
desktop stays in folder-view mode as shown in the settings dialog, but it
simply doesn't show any icons?
It sounds like what could be happening is that it keeps folderview, but
for some reason, isn't saving the folder it should be pointing at, so
when you restart kde, it's pointing at the wrong one, which either
doesn't exist or is empty.
Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the problem. I also killed ~/.kde
completely and tried a new user.
If I go to the configuration dialog, then it shows the correct path even after
logout and login, but the icons don't show up...
I am not completely sure if I did something wrong when installing the system.
Maybe I missed something. Slackware doesn't have dependency tracking...
My hope was, that there is some kind of "log file", which can be saved and
posted here, so someone with better knowledge about the KDE internals may have a
look at this. Is the ".xsession-errors" file useful for that? I get many stuff
there after logging in, but nothing I can work with...
Or try the traditional...
... which is what I tend to use instead of kquitapp.
After a few seconds, restart it...
Will try that. Maybe this throws out some error message while restarting, which
points me to the problem...
