Description:

tweaK is a config tool for editing KDE's various secret and hidden config options.




Changelog:

0.2.2
*really* fixed the kicker option now. It would appear that the ~/.kde/share/autostart does not overlay the $KDEDIR/share/autostart entries in that if you don't set a var in your local copy ... its not set period. So panel.desktop no Exec= ? guess what doesn't start? =)
Sorry about this one guys. should have tested better.

0.2.1
Fixed default for kicker option NOTE: this only affects the users who have never ran 0.2
Anyone who is having problems with kicker not running on startup needs to enable it in tweak or delete the entry found in ~/.kde/share/autostart

0.2
Add option to disable kicker on KDE startup
Added Missing Icon sizes
Added option to disable Access Keys
Added option to disable shutdown/reboot in logout dialog
Reorganized the UI
Fixed bug where Disabling Archive expanding in the sidebar wasn't working

 tweak killed kicker

 
 by cyberbeat on: May 7 2007
 
Score 50%

I installed tweak. I only changed the option "allow access keys" to off.

Bad results:

Kicker does not start anymore at kde-startup (but I can start it manually). I don't know why. The kicker-config-files are not responsible for that. Where do I have to search?

Another problem: tweak changed the settings for kdm: in the shutdown-dialog I had not the right anymore to shutdown. Autologin in kdm also did not work anymore. I had to reconfigure it.

I have kde-3.5.6 on opensuse-10.1

I've fixed the kicker issue. But I can't seem to figure out how your shutdown option got disabled unless you unchecked it.
As for autologin tweak doesn't touch that at all. In fact kdmrc is *never* touched at all.

Something was still wrong because I never released the fixed version, which is what 0.2.1 is. But this version will not automatically fix your problem it only prevents it from happening to anyone else. It is impossible to fix your problem automatically as what was broken was a default. When you first ran tweaK the config file did not exist so tweaK choose a default.
To fix your kicker problem enable it in tweak or delete the entry found in ~/.kde/share/autostart

As for your userlist in KDM, tweaK doesn't touch that. In fact I don't even know how to enable or disable it! and for the 2nd time tweaK never touches kdmrc (the KDM config file)
Are you refearing to the userlist in KDM Themes or the standard dialog(Not themed)? If you don't know for sure if your KDM is themed or not, ask in your distribution's channel how you change this, or you can use kdmtheme which gives you a dialog to configure which theme KDM uses or you can prevent KDM from being themed. http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/KDM+Theme+Manager?content=22120

If your using a KDM Theme and your list doesn't exist your theme may not support a userlist.
Either way check your KDM settings in kcontrol -> System Administration -> Login Manager
Perhaps you've got something misconfigured in the Users tab.
For any questions you might try asking on IRC in your distribution's channel Or in your distribution's Forum

I almost have the same problem, except I uninstalled Tweak, and now Kicker won't start with KDE, and it wouldn't while it was installed either.

 Kicker Solution (?)

 
 by NeoAmsterdam on: May 7 2007
 
Score 50%

I think I might have a solution to the Kicker problem (and it doesn't involve actually kicking something/someone).

Open up ~/.kde/share/autostart in Konqueror and create a link to an application ("Edit" > "Create New" > "Link to Application"). A dialog box will appear.

In the "General" tab, type in "kicker" (without quotes, of course) as the name of the application link. Next, select the "Application" tab. Type "kicker" into the "Name" and "Command" text fields. When you are done, click the "OK" button, and you will have a link to the Kicker in your autostart folder.

Test this by logging out and in again. It has worked so far for me, and it sure beats having to manually invoke kicker.

I found a solution, too:

I deleted the file in ~/.kde/share/autostart.

It would not compile in kubuntu Feisty (I said Edgy in my earlier post but that was in error) but I did get it to compile in Debian Etch. I will try it out as a test user since I have read some posts about KDE being broken after Tweak was used.

 kicker lost

KDE 3.5.6 on kubuntu Feisty.

I installed tweaK after compiling it on a Debian system. The app comes up but after restarting KDE, kicker is gone and so is everything on the desktop.

I used a test account for this so I did not lose any important configs :)

Yes... I guess I was mistaken on something. apparently setting Hidden=false or Hidden=true doesn't matter it doesn't make any difference or something. So I guess what actually happens is it _completely_ overrides the panel.desktop entry instead of altering certain options.
And just confirmed with Aaron. Guess what I need to do is have tweak delete the .desktop if the user wants the panel to start. makes me wonder why I never noticed this when testing....

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
