I didn't realise there was a configuration for default apps in the "system
settings" so everytime i deleted it from the panel, the system put it back the
next time i logged in. Never seen that option before, must be new to 4.7


Big Time

Back in May I encountered a bug
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=272666
which I was told was 'fixed upstream'.

Back when I reported it the bus was fairly constrained, only the one problem with things being written. Now I seem to be suffering from something wider in scope but I suspect a similar root cause.

The phenomena was that:

"What is being restored seems to be settings from a week or more ago, those settings and items on the panel and systray."

So if I delete the session as I did when I deleted all of ~/.kde4 to fix another problem, I can set up new things (widgets, plasmoids) on the panel and screen but they get fixed.

Phenomena like: The size and position of the widgets on screen is the same every time I login even if I move, resize delete or add.


Phenomena like: the set of programs in the kickoff menu's "recently used" set is the same on every new login regardless of what I ran in a previous session.


I've verified the latter by looking at the kickoffrc file.

Points to consider:

All of ~/.kde4 is writeable

If I run "kcmshell4 kcmsmserver" its set to 'restore previous session', as it always has been.



The settings I get on each login are all "from a week or more back" when I wiped ~/.kde4 to fix another problem and the first session.after that.

Thomas Lubking told me that #272666 as fixed upstream in 4.6.4
Perhaps, but it seems I now have a larger scope version of this.


Ian, can you check that your ~/.kde4 is writeable and that you have ("kcmshell4 kcmsmserver") a restore previous sessions setting. Can you see if you are suffering the same problems I am with the kickoff menu.

Perhaps we need to reactivate that bug.
