Ouch. No kicker/panel. None. Nada. Root and non-root. Existing kde profile and new profile. No off to the side. Just gone. Non-existent. Desktop right-click works as does Alt-F2 and hotkeys. ======================================== startkde still needs a file test. Here is a snippet from the log: /usr/bin/startkde: line 402: /usr/local/kde-mods/share/kgtk/preload: No such file or directory I sent a patched version several messages ago. Probably got overlooked in the shuffle. :) ======================================== startkde line 110 echo "startkde: User ID is $UID. Setting KDEROOTHOME to $KDEHOME." For consistency, you likely want to change startkde: To [startkde] ======================================== You updated the splash. Might want to look at kpersonalizer too. Still uses the phrase KDE 3.5.12. ======================================== Whenever I start Trinity with a new profile, I always receive the following messages: Invalid entry (missing '=') at /tmp/kde-root/kconf_updateUzL0lc.tmp:1 Invalid entry (missing '=') at /tmp/kde-root/kconf_updateFG2sia.tmp:1 Only with the very first log with a new profile. Yes, goes away with subsequent starts, but looks ugly. ======================================== I have seen this message a few times throughout the day but inconsistently. Shows up and sometimes doesn't. QClipboard: Unknown SelectionClear event received. ======================================== Artifacts in konqueror toolbar grabbers still present.
