Bug Description

All, sorry for posting the the copy/move bug by mistake.

On update to the latest master FW5 17.12 and Plasma 5.12 basket 2.49a automatically moved my basket store from ~/.kde4 to ~/.local/share. It then presented a dialog to move the existing ~/.kde4 store to the trash (which is fine).

However, upon opening basket notepads, nothing could be found, all baskets and sub-baskets were empty. A quick check of ~/.config/basketrc showed it still pointed to the old basket store under ~/.kde4 instead of the new store under ~/.local/share. Setting the basket store location to the correct directory under ~/.local/share allowed everything to be found.

The auto-move of the basket store from ~/.kde4 to ~/.local/share should update the basketrc with the appropriate new basket store location so that the baskets are found.

(but after resetting the store to the proper location, I like what I see in 2.49a. The text fly-in when opening sub-baskets is really annoying, but other than that, this is a great step forward)

This is fixed in git now, thanks for bugreport. DataFolder parameter in basketrc is intended for specifying custom location, if it is the default ~/.local/share/basket, that parameter can be just set to empty.

Note that the animation can be disabled in the settings.
