[Resolved] Rootcopy Kicker Favorites

Post#1 by Bogomips » 24 Jul 2014, 16:58

Simple question. One of apps requires kdeliibs. Installing kdeliibs, I believe, clobbers Kicker's Applications menu. So before installing, required apps have to be saved in Favorites, which seem to remain untouched. Temporising by saving Favorites file in Rootcopy would be one less complication. Would be grateful for relevant filename or directory.

it is somewhere in $HOME/.kde4/usr/share/config.
you may enter that dir and then run:

Code: Select all

grep '.desktop' *
and it should find it.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks.

Presumably file is $HOME/.kde4/share/config/kickoffrc

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~/.kde4/share/config$ grep '.desktop' *
...
kickoffrc:FavoriteURLs=/usr/share/applications/usm.desktop,/usr/share/applications/gtk-porteus-settings-centre.desktop,/usr/share/applications/gtk-make-changes.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/kdesystemsettings.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/okular.desktop,/usr/share/applications/transmission-qt.desktop,/usr/share/applications/smplayer.desktop,/usr/share/applications/smtube.desktop
Resolved:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls -ld /mnt/sda6/porteus/rootcopy/home/guest
drwxrwxrwx 7 root root 4096 Jul 25 15:33 p6/porteus/rootcopy/home/guest/
