Description Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2010-06-15 07:23:58 UTC
From bug 314775 comment 11:

Upgrading to KDE 4.4.4 was a bit tricky. (...) After everything compiled fine, plasma-desktop crashed each time I logged in to KDE until I removed ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop*.
Comment 1 Oliver Schwabedissen 2010-06-15 18:46:23 UTC
I think I found the reason meanwhile: I was using media-gfx/wally-2.3.0 as my wallpaper changer. It uses a plugin for KDE4 so ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc contained an entry


After deleting plasma-desktop-appletsrc and plasma-desktoprc plasma-desktop didn't crash anymore after login.

I then updated stable media-gfx/wally-2.3.0 to ~media-gfx/wally-2.3.2.

Using wally 2.3.2 plasma-desktop doesn't crash anymore.
Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2010-06-20 21:38:47 UTC
So probably we should put a blocker !<=media-gfx/wally-2.3.0 somewhere.
Comment 3 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2010-08-22 15:02:57 UTC
wally-2.3.0 is not in the tree anymore.
