A solution to the Karamba re-login bug

A solution to the Karamba re-login bug

Sorry if that's not a good place for this info, but i didn't know which one would be better.
I know that many people have this same problem with the re-login SuperKaramba 0.34 bug (themes after re-login are changing their's positions on the desktop). I read about this problem in many places (such as newsgroups and boards) in looking of solution and it would be difficult to share with it in each of those places. That's why i'm writing it here - where every superkaramba user looks :)

The main problem was that i couldn't set superkaramba in ~/.kde/Autostart because it was automaticly saved in kde session when it was being closed and then automaticly recovered when starting kde. So if SK was in Autostart, and wasn't closed manualy by me before closing KDE, then after next KDE start it was opened twice (1. because of Autostart, 2. because of the auto-save and auto-recover of session).
This auto-recover was the worst thing, cause there was a well-known bug (everything was great when i closed SuperKaramba before closing KDE, and when it was started from Autostart only, but it wasn't handy to close SuperKaramba before each exit).

Now i found the solution which lies in the Control Centre (i don't know exacly names in english language version. I mean this centre where "LookNFeel" menu lies too).
In this centre you've got to find a menu called "Components", and something like "Sessions' menager" into it. On the screenshot you can see how should it look.
In the dialog field write down "superkaramba" (as on the screenshot). You can write down also some other applications after a colon ( : ) if you want.
That means that superkaramba will be ignored in saving the KDE session when exit. So it won't be recovered when you start KDE again!
Now you only have to do a file in your ~/.kde/Autostart directory (the name of the file isn't important). This file should look like that:

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=superkaramba /path/to/your/theme/file.theme /path/to/some/other/theme/file2.theme

(Only a space, gap, or how you call it between "superkaramba" and path to the .theme file! Only a gap too between the .theme file no. 1 and path to the other one!). After the "superkaramba" word you can write as many paths to the themes as you wish.

For me everything now works perfect.

Ok, that's all, sorry for my not-prefect english and write in comments if you don't understand something (but i'm not any linux-guru so don't expect every help from me).

Just curious, but have you posted in the superkaramba forums concerning this? If not, can you post what distro, version of KDE and any other important information about your computer that may contribute to this? It would help us solve this in superkaramba.

Ok, so I'll post it in superkaramba forums too in a moment.
I forgot about saying what distro it is :P
So, that's Mdk10, KDE 3.2 (20040204) and Kernel 2.6.3-4.

This problem has been driving me nuts for a while! Thanks so much for posting the answer! Awesome work!

When nobody is looking, this sentence is in Spanish.

 a bug?

How is this a bug? This is entirely a sessions issue. If you want to launch ANY program at KDE start (using autostart), you *MUST* start with a clean session. Otherwise, each KDE start will initiate an additional pid for whatever program(s) were still running when KDE was shut down. So, if you had 4 karamaba pid, your next start will add 1 and the next will add 1, so on, so forth.

Also, making a desktop entry doesn't work for everyone. I still have to use a bash script.

Just food for thought.

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.
