Default sessions and double logins in KDE4


Hi everyone,

I have searched a bit and i still haven't found a reliable way to save a default session in KDE4, the feature is not fully implemented as of yet and some people found a workaround using dbus, but it doesn't work for me. Anyone else knows of an alternative to get it to work?

Also, when I first log in KDE4, the desktop is never completely displayed: taskbars, wallpaper, widgets, etc simply do not show. I fix it by clicking semi-blindly to log off and on second log in everything magically appears... anyone knows the reason and hopefully a solution?

Thanks in advance.

Seems to be related to your video card driver.
Check with kdm and kde4 instead of kdm4.

Thanks for your reply, actually i am logging into KDE4 using kdm 3.5.9; mainly because of a theme im not willing to let go

My video card is a ATI Mobility Radeon 9200, and im using the open source driver that comes in the default kernel tree:

Code:
Initialized radeon 1.28.0 20060524 on minor 0
Any other suggestions?
