Hi,

I've upgrade to Plasma according to the guide. The installation itself went fine. However, I've lost all my settings!

My virtual desktop configuration, my theme, toolbar layout, everything is gone.

I did take a backup of the .kde4 folder.

How can I preserve as much of my window manager settings as possible?

I believe that is just normal. It happened to me anyway. You simply have to reconfigure them. I don't believe it tries to preserve those settings when moving to Plasma 5 at all. However some kde4 apps might still use some of those settings.

Ok, thanks. I've already managed to scrape most things together, but I'm really missing my pic of the day wallpaper and working konsole profiles widget.

konsole profiles widget seems to work only with a konsole:5 which yet needs to be stabilised.
