I need to know if this is an arch packaging issue or a kde.org issue. On my
arch box with all kde4 updates through today, I launch kde4 and my kde3 kicker
and the kde4 plasma panel are both present:
So I moved ~/.kde4 figuring it was the problem and launched kde4 again. Still
it pulled in my kde3 kicker and background. Huh?
So I moved ~/.kde and ~/.kde4 to make sure there was nothing kde (3 or 4)
related in my home directory and I launched kde4 again. To my surprise, kde4
loaded it's plasma panel and then proceeded to load the default kdemod3 kicker
and kdemod3 background?? See:
Obviously something is very wrong here. kde4 should not be loading the
kdemod3 kicker or background. Looking at the newly created
~/.kde4/share/config files, the kickerrc file contains the following:
15:42 providence:~> cat .kde4/share/config/kickerrc
Double-huh? Why would kde-4.5.4 create a kickerrc containing kde3 entries?
Let me know if you think this is an Arch packaging issue or a kde.org issue
so I know where to file the bug. Thanks.
