Ok, so we have a few bumps with 4.6 KDE and we are working hard to resolve them as soon as possible.

An issue with the skel file is black text on black background, this is fixed in app-misc/sabayon-skel-5.5-r2, but the problem is, we don't touch your home folder, so you need to manually do this

equo update
equo upgrade

That will pull the new fixes, but here is what you need to do next

as USER, not root, from konsole:

cp -a /etc/skel/.kde* ~/

and than restart KDE


This will copy the default Sabayon skel files to your home directory and reset your KDE and things will be all pretty again


-------------------

Issues with magneto, multiple instances. We are aware of this and working on it. For now, can uninstall it or just right click on the extra ones and choose exit.

or

System-Settings - Startup and Shutdown - Session Management and check the Start with an empty session click apply and logout and than log back in, I only get one magneto

I think I obtained the same result with some hack at System Settings.

Did anyone notice that you can't drag desktop icons around unless you go into SystemSettings, input Devices, then change mouse click action to single-click? Once you rearrange the icons to your liking and lock them in place you are then able to switch back to double-click. Very annoying!! :( I also noticed that the date/time in the system tray seems crammed in there such that part of it is cut off. I had to fiddle with the fonts in order to make it look halfway decent.

I've updated the first post that we are aware of the multiple instances of magneto starting up.

I copied the skel to my home and restarted X. Things look ok in kde again, thanks.
I'm using a dark color theme (zenburn). Before updating to 4.6, the color was used by GTK and Qt apps. Now it's not, making for a very bad experience. Any idea why this happens?
