Quirks With New Trinity Profiles

Testing a new Trinity profile. I tested these quirks three ways: skipping kpersonalizer, configuring kpersonalizer for minimum effects, and accepting all defaults in kpersonalizer.

The panel height is preconfigured to Small. When the new Trinity profile opens, the height is indeed Small.

Yet when I open the panel configuration box the size says Normal.

In /usr/share/config.kcfg/kickerSettings.kcfg I have panel set to 1) no mouseover effects, 2) no icon activation effects, and 3) no tooltips. I create those settings when I build the package and the kickerSettings.kcfg gets installed with my preferred settings.

When I open the configuration box the first time all three settings are enabled, which I can confirm with straightforward usability tests of the desktop.

In /usr/share/config.kcfg/kdesktop.kcfg I have shadow text off and white text on. With a new profile the text is black with shadows.

If I accept the defaults from kpersonalizer, then the text is white but shadows remain on.

Default icon theme is now Crystal SVG. Crystal SVG is the icon theme when I skip kpersonalizer or accept the defaults. When I select minimum desktop effects in kpersonalizer, the icon theme is KDE Classic.

With minimum desktop effects or defaults in kpersonalizer, the bouncing mouse cursor reappears, despite the default being non-busy. Seems the only way to get the default non-busy cursor is to skip kpersonalizer.
