Sabayon 5.1 KDE: Switching from Folder View to Desktop View

Postby stefan9 » Sat Dec 12, 2009 21:27

Just installed Sabayon 5.1, seems you use Folder View as standart now in KDE. My problem is, when I switch to Desktop View and ad this Folder View Plasmoid, after a restart its gone again. I also lost my new background picture. Does anybody have some good advise? Thanks a lot...

Haven't installed SL 5.1 KDE myself, but I recognise your problem. Does the following openSUSE post help you, by any chance?: Re: Lost the KDE 4.3 default Desktop Window, new 11.2

Yes,this openSuse post describes my problem. It's funny, I rebooted 3 times and always choose this Desktop View again,and now it stays like it should. Must be a bug of KDE :D

Is there already a bugreport in bugs.kde.org?

Thanks for helping

Are you sure your not setting up just one desktop? We ship with "activities" enabled, so you will need to change for all four desktops.

in the pic your desktop is still set to folder view, you have just added a folder widget on top.

The only issue here is user based.

Sorry yes that was my mistake now with folder View. But still, after the installation I just switched from Folder View to Desktop View, added this Dektop Plasmoid. And after a reboot it was gone. I was always on Desktop one so what is all about this activities?
