Hi all,

First install of Siduction (KDE), all updated.

I am using the Application Menu and put all my favorites on the left-hand side of the menu. But when I log out or restart, the favorites are gone and I have to put them again. Any clue why this is happening? Never saw this behaviour before.

Thanks!

Are you using the full screen menu?

When I right click on the Siduction logo at the far left and choose "Show Alternatives," there are 3 possible application styles:

The Application Dashboard
The Application Launcher
The Application Menu

I'm referring to the Application Menu (not fullscreen)

OK, German names are different, just wanted to make sure. I have been using the application dashboard since its invention. So I just now switched to application menu for testing, added some items, rebooted,they were all there. Did you try to delete the widget and reinstall it? Other than that, I am out of ideas.

Thanks, devil.

I did something and it worked: I created a new user, got my menu application style, which was already populated with a few default favorites (my current user had zero favorites), so I added some, logged out, found them, changed general settings in appearance, restarted, found them, logged out again, and found them still there.

Weird?

Cheers!

And yes, I deleted the widget and reinstalled it, populated the favorites, logged out, they were gone.

Is there a special theme involved?

As per this post (https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/7pzxs7/favorites_completely_disappearing_from/), I deleted the files in ~/.local/share/kactivitymanagerd/resources/
and
~/.config/kactivitymanagerd-statsrc

and restarted, and all was fine!

I appreciate your help, devil.

Cheers!

Very strange that this should happen on a freshly installed system.
