Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdeplasma-addons

Hello,

I hope it's the right package for this report (I've some hesitation between this one and "update-manager").

After upgrading from jaunty to karmic (Kubuntu), every user lost his plasmoid configuration -- except the "main" user (the one created when installing Kubuntu).
When logging in with the main user, everything is fine, but with all the others, the custom desktop has been replaced by the defaut desktop (default wallpaper + one folder view).

Looking for the cause of this, I found that while the configuration of the main user was in
 /home/$USER/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc
the configurations of the other users were in
 /home/$USER/.kde/share/config/plasma-appletsrc
while for them a new default
 /home/$USER/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc
had been created.

Renaming plasma-appletsrc to plasma-desktop-appletsrc for each user fixes the problem.
I suppose this is something that should have been done during the upgrade, but has only been done for the main user.

Best regards,
