Report KDE4.2 - can't add plasmoids to desktop [solved] in Art And Design Posted February 18, 2009 · Edited February 18, 2009 by eddiep I'm using KDE4.2 on Mandriva 2009.0, KDE installed from Mandriva's packages. Everything was all right, but a couple of days ago, I observed, that i can't add plasmoids to the desktop and/or panel any more. Any attempt in adding a plasmoid results in plasma freezing. I have no idea where to start to look after the problem... any help would be appreciated. I tried to start plasma from a console and see if there are any error when I add a plasmoid, but no, there is absolutely nothing shown there when I add a plasmoid, just plain plasma freeze. Plasmoids are working without a problem if I run them with plasmoidviewer. SOLUTION: I've deleted ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc Than readded all my plasmoids and reconfigured all lost desktop settings.
