Desktop changed, browsertabs deleted


So, uhm. I have a very strange problem today.

I logged on this morning as usual just to find that my desktop wallpaper had been reverted to the one I used before. My browser tabs were all gone and the shortcuts I had placed on the desktop were also all gone.

Im using slackware 13.37 with KDE. Anyone know what could've resulted in such a problem?

Did you delete ~/.kde/ or ~/.kderc ?

Nope. Just did the usual surfing and a bit of chatting. The only thing out of the ordinary is that I tried Kopete instead of Pidgin that day.

hello,
Can you reproduce this behavior? Like if you use kopete while surfing, etc. And then shut down your computer, and then turning it on to see if your session is restored or not.

Finding what's responsible is as much important as fixing the problem some times.

Did you use Firefox or Chrome?

With Chrome, if you shut it down when there's no free space left, then all browsing tabs will be gone the next session. That's the case that I have experienced.

The tabs are stored within a session file within '~/.opera/sessions'. There have been bugs in the past where these could get corrupted but I am not aware of any outstanding bugs right now related to this.

Your wallpaper and shortcuts on the desktop are obviously self created and hence outside of Opera's control.

Sounds most like a recursive delete gone wrong.
