Good Day,

I'm not a user of Kvirc myself, sticking to irssi.  However, out
of curiosity, I installed kvirc in a fully fledged KDE
environment (package task-kde-desktop) to see if I could
reproduce the problem.  And I believe I've been able to pinpoint
something.

It would seem that there is a trap with the naming convention of
the configuration *file* ~/.config/kvirc and the configuration
*directory* called ~/.config/KVIrc.  I've got both of these at
the end of a clean install, and after the first pass of the
wizard:

	~/.config/KVIrc/
	~/.config/kvirc

Currently, is your ~/.config/kvirc a file or a directory storing
your configuration ?

If that is a directory storing your configuration, what happens
if you rename it as, say, ~/.config/KVIrc and try to load this
one configuration directory instead?

Kind Regards,
