    Exclamation Bug?? Sessions not saved / restoring -=Fixed=-

    Hello to all.

    I wasn't sure if this was a bug or not (I need muts or another admin to clarify this please) but I was coming up empty handed getting all my windows, shells, Kwrite, Firefox,etc.... (basically anything that you open up) to "reload" on boot-up. You guys know what I mean?? Like back in bt2....say you open a shell and make it have 5 tabs, you open Kwrite and firefox up and all the sudden you have to leave and you don't want to leave your laptop on, so you logoff and power down your Laptop. Then, you return and power bt2 back on, and EVERYTHING is back up and running in the EXACT same position as where you left it at when you logged off the last time.

    Well,..in bt3, this does not happen. If you logoff at anytime and have ANY windows or apps up and running and you log off,...your session is NOT saved!! What happened?? Where is all the work I had gone to?? Wheres my Kwrite opened up to where I was working on my dictionaries at?? Wheres my shell window with all my tabs at?? ITS ALL GONE!!!

    Don't worry! And don't panic!! I have solved this "bug" / "mystery".


    After long and intensive trial and error. ...I managed to make my bt3 work like my bt2. Remember when I was telling some of you, (balding_parrot,pureh@te,etc) that I was having trouble getting my screens or "sessions" back after I rebooted?? Like when you open 4 tabs in a shell and have fiorefox up..and maybe you were looking at a file all at the same time...then you leave those windows open and reboot...and when you log back in...their gone!! But in bt2 they "reloaded" EXACTLY the way you left them??


    Wanna know what the problem was?? Wanna know how to "fix" this "bug"?? Heres how.


    -=
    The E-Z way=-

    First off, make sure you have show hidden files and folders checked!!!

    It was SSSSooooo simple...yet for a Linux novice like myself..it was somewhat a difficult and tedious task.

    I moved folder after folder..reboot after reboot (thats why you haven't seen me on the forums for the last few days..lol )

    The problem was with a little file called ksmserverrc located in ...

    /root/.kde/share/config

    thats .kde

    not kde


    go to that file and open it up with Kwrite or whatever and go to the line called

    loginMode=default

    change that to...guess what

    Thats right!!! You change it to......

    loginMode=restorePreviousLogout

    Now save and exit
    AND REBOOT NOW!!!!

    So simple!!!!

    AFTER REBOOT>>

    Go ahead and open up a couple of shell windows, a text document...and leave it all up. Now logoff and reboot, and tell me what you see now??
    For now on, when you logoff and you have multiple windows opened at the same time...they'll be "automagically" restored to the SAME EXACT position, and whatever you had opened before you logged off will be right there waiting on you!!

    Cool huh??

    Another mystery solve by -=Xploitz=-

    lol

    Thanks to balding_parrot and pureh@te for your help with this. I figured you'd guys would probably be interested in knowing the fix and I wanted to tell you thanks for the good advice and for offering me help tracking down this "bug".

    I'm also going to post this in the tutorial section just in case its not a bug. Like I said earlier,..I don't know if it is a bug or if it was intentional to have it read

    loginMode=default

    or not, so until someone on the staff or development team can confirm this as a "bug" or that its suppose to be like this...I'm going to post this in the tutorial section as well. Sorry for the double post, but when its confirmed either way,..Ill remove it from the Tutorial forum or from this forum.

    Heres the link to the other thread>>>


    How to "Restore All Of Your Sessions" on BT3 like it did in BT2!!

    Thanks pureh@te.

    Your ABSOLUTELY right about determined hard headed computer dorks not liking to lose or to be beaten,..that and I never ever, I mean I NEVER EVER give up on anything,... NOTHING when it comes to BT2/3. Just like that dang Faked MAC internet connection with an Atheros card. Remember that S.O.A.B???

    But I'm no computer dork!! I prefer the term..."Computer Geek"

    Well done man
    Me stop?? NEVER!!!

    Glad you liked it The_Denv. Fun? lol..HARDLY!! On maybe a little. It was a mix of frustration and determination and pure brain powered adrenalin (along with a healthy dose of stubborn as a jackass) that let me do it. (More of the stubborn jackass in me than anything.) But yea it was fun and it felt GREAT to figure it out on my own. I do love a challenge. And believe it or not, I really am only a Novice with Linux. I'm far from being a Linux guru. (What is it?? Been using Linux now for 9 months now, the same time that I've been using BT. )

    Was my excitement really all that transparent??

    LMFAO!!! I liked that!!

    Well "technically" its only been 6 1/2 - 7 months. There was a 2 month period here on the forums..from late September to November, where I was without a laptop. I had a faulty ground on my Wi-Fi amp and it fried my Laptops Mother board..and my 2 amps....and my antenna...lol...and my card.....and my RAM.

    I hope to have in a high paying career as soon as I graduate from College. Getting paid to do what you love to do for a hobby is the best job anywhere IMO.

    Heh

    Sounds like you had a rough 2 months, I know how you feel as many a computer has blown up on me. My main computer has been out of order since April 2007 lol. Cool your in college, how long you in there and how long do you have left to go before graduation? Yeh whistling to work and loving it is the best buzz anyone can get!

    ...For me, my house has been on the market for nearly a year. So my life has kind of been on 'hold' until I move into my new house...which has an outhouse with concrete walls..so Im dreaming about my new network setup until I move house. When I get settled I will be furthering my qualifications and try my best to get a network security job.

    Good Luck for college man!

    I'm a 31 year old College Freshman. (YEA!! Fresh fish!! )

    Well, with concrete walls all around you....at least your Wi-Fi will be more secure from eavesdropping.
