Re: [kde-linux] How to delete default launchers in taskbar?

Hello Alex,

I am using OpenSUSE 12 also...have not run into a problem with mine...have you unlocked widgets in panel options? Also, make sure you have permission to delete...I looked at my taskbar icon for KompoZer and it is owned by ROOT...that may be the issue??? Try logging in as root and delete them from there and re-log in as user and see if that helps...

Hope this does the trick...if not, check back & I will see if I can get mine to act like yours in an effort to fix it :0)

Hi KDE users,
I am  using KDE 4.8.4 under openSuSE 12.x and would like to remove the
Dolphin and Firefox launchers from the taskbar.  I can remove them on
each startup but after a while they return.

My default file manager is Krusader which I added to the startup list
in Desktop Configuration.  I don't use Dolphin and those launchers take
up space that has better uses (6 active desktops).  Is there a way to
PERMANENTLY remove those launchers?
For me (4.8.4 on Gentoo Linux) it's just a matter of unlocking widgets,
right-click on the launcher and removing it. I have no idea what would
bring them back on openSUSE, this is not normal.
Gentoo here as well (but I've been running the 4.9 pre-releases... 4.9-
rc2 aka 4.8.97 currently, IIRC 4.9.0 is due approximately... tommorrow!).

But I actually don't run a taskmanager plasmoid at all; I put other
things on my panels and use alt-tab or grid-desktop or the window-list
(which I have the desktop configured to popup with a middle-click), or
since I have a full-size dual-1080p-monitors-in-stacked-config desktop,
simply arrange windows so none are fully hidden, and use scroll-on-
desktop to switch desktops...

That's why I hadn't responded before.

But wonko's correct.  If you set the configuration up the way you want,
then reboot or restart kde and have it stay thru that first initial
reboot (some settings only only get saved on desktop shutdown, so doing
that immediately after finishing the config should lock it in, as well as
test that it really took), then LATER have it revert on you...

Something's wrong!

The first thing I'd guess is a corrupted filesystem and or unstable
system, that's eating configuration files.  I'd do a thorough fsck and
see.  If it fixes some stuff and you do another fsck within a couple days
and there's a lot more for it to fix, BACKUP ANY DATA YOU WANT TO SAVE

Actually, anybody not having tested backups by definition doesn't really
care about their data in the first place, so you should already have
them, but double-checking that they're current and that it's actually
possible to recover from them's a very good idea.

Thanks, Duncan.  I'll give that a try tomorrow when my eyes aren't crossed!
