I would like to inquire about disabling a plasma desktop shell popup error window for KDE4 4.14.8. I have searched through System Settings>Applications and System Notifications>Manage Notifications and have not found a matching item.
Here is the actual popup error window:

Error Plasma Desktop Shell
"Unable to save bookmarks in /home/username/.kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml. Reported error was: Error during rename.. This error message will only be shown once. The cause of the error needs to be fixed as quickly as possible, which is most likely a full hard drive."

I am causing the error, so there is no alarm. The plasma desktop shell popup error window is due to a work-around for an issue with Homerun application launcher and Dolphin. I would like to disable the popup error window. Please advise.
Thanks

Some input from the KDE forums....
One reply I got is to edit the following file:
Code:
in src/kbookmarkmanager.cpp simply replace
static int hadSaveError = false;
with
static int hadSaveError = true;

This seems to get me one step closer but I still would need:
1. Get the file.
2. Edit the file.
3. Know which file to compile the patch too. (I don't see a kbookmarkmanager package in Gentoo)

Of course this is all a best guess since I'm not a programmer.

I found a dev that was already working on the root cause (homerun writing to the bookmarks file for Dolphin). See the following post for more detail:

A patch was created to to stop homerun's write access. The patch is working correctly so far.
