Angry KDE annoyance: how to get rid of kgpg from the system tray permanently?


I configured kgpg recently and now it sits on the KDE system tray in the KDE start menu bar at the bottom every time I start KDE up.

This is getting annoying.

I tried changing the option in the Kgpg options menu to disable "start Kgpg automatically at login" and it gets reset every time to enabled.

I tried deleting the .gnupg folder in my home directory and it keeps getting recreated every time.

I cannot understand why Kgpg is so stubborn on this aspect. Short of uninstalling it completely, what do I need to do to keep it from getting into the system tray every time KDE is started up?

Look in your ~/.xinitrc file and see if it is mentioned there.

There's no .xinitrc in my home folder.

By the way I'm using Debian, I'm not using a destkop manager like kdm or gdm and I boot into the command line and start KDE using startx.

look in ~/.kde/Autostart
Also, ~/.xprofile

There is nothing in Autostart. I even did an ls -a and there's nothing there at all.

And there is no file called .xprofile either

Any ideas?

I don't know where kde keeps its "session" file... but that's my last guess, sorry.

Matir, I found the config file. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

It is in ~/.kde/share/config/kgpgrc

I just changed the autostart to false manually and now it has stopped loading automatically

Don't know why the Kgpg settings interface didn't save the changes though. Must be a bug.

Probably. Bonus points for feeling ambitious and filing a bug report.
