I had to redo my home folder for my account (did a mv folder folder name, create a new folder again, move the files back to the folder i just created from the previous move)....I got it up and running for the most part except for getting a plasmoid to load in my account.
I will try to bring the applet up and put it on my desktop and it will "freeze" it when trying to bring it up and am forced to reboot to get my desktop environment back.

I can load it just fine in the plasmoidviewer
plasmoidviewer -c desktop Countdown-timer

and it will show the app in a virtual window.

Any help at all would be great I really don't want to rebuild my entire account from scratch again.

The plasmoid works on test accounts.

in the homedirectory there are usually .files means they start with a dot. These are hidden files, are you sure you deleted the coresponding config file for this application?

you can check ls -alh and check if you see if there is something which could be a config file for your app.


to determine which config files are in use you could check google or make a new user and run teh app. than search for teh config file and copy it over to your existing user.
