kooka configuration problem


Sometimes I should just sit on my hands and not touch anything.
This evening I was playing about with kooka and closed all the view panes using the little black crosses in the top right corner of each (no, don't ask). I opened them again afterwards but now when I open kooka I just get a blank screen with no view panes. Anyone know where I can find the config files so I can put this right?

Take a look in the .kde directory of your home directory. This problem seems familiar. If playing about with the tool bars does nothing for you do the following desparation method -

Make a copy of .kde directory. Then look inside of the original and hopefully there's a folder called kooka. Try deleting it first and see what happens.

To determine the correct directory to look in a change what I can in the configuaration and then determine which files have been touched by searching for those files modified in the last few minutes.

Good luck. Can't be more helpfully as I'm not in front of my KDE terminal.

That's harsh. Go to settings in Kooka, and configure toolbars. Select all the views you want, and add them to the toolbar. When you want a certain pane, click the button on the toolbar.

Nope, playing about with and configuring the toolbars doesn't help. I still get a blank view and although I can now click on a button to get a view pane I can only have one at a time because clicking on one view button minimises the other view. Unfortunately there isn't a kooka folder in .kde. It looks like I've pretty much screwed kooka which is a pity because it isn't a bad app.
There should be an emoticon for Doh!

Settings>Tool Views will allow me to select just one view panel at a time i.e. when I select a second one the first minimizes. Maximizing that one minimizes the second and so on. I can't seem to get the several panes open at once that was there before I messed with it.

Have you tried this yet? If I loose the view panes it's a devil of a job to get them back to the default settings. I find it easier to just delete ~/.kde/share/config/kookarc and start again. Ten second job and sorted!

Yes I have now and it works I now have kooka back as it was

My apologies for not trying it straight away, I'm having issues with alsa and was playing with that.

Many, many thanks

Mikie
