Missing plasma.desktop file

Asked by wl2776 on 2009-03-26

KDE Bugreport # 187988.

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=187988

Plasma doesn't start after logon, because the file /usr/share/autostart/plasma.desktop is missing.
I've taken this file from the respective KDE 4.1 package.

We ship the file, I don't know how it disappeared for you.

Converting to question.

It was in the package, indeed, but was locally diverted to /usr/share/autostart.bkp/plasma.desktop

$ dpkg -L kdebase-workspace-data | grep auto
/usr/share/autostart
/usr/share/autostart/plasma.desktop
locally diverted to: /usr/share/autostart.bkp/plasma.desktop
/usr/share/autostart/kwrited-autostart.desktop
/usr/share/autostart/krunner.desktop
/usr/share/kde4/services/autostart.desktop

I don't know why and when this happened.
I have moved it in the correct place.

Sorry for repeated post.

Best Mohamed Zaian (mzaian) said : #6

first try to reconfigure kdebase-workspace-data
dpkg-reconfigure kdebase-workspace-data
or
try using apt-file application to locate the file in an application
1- apt-get install apt-file
2- apt-file update
3- apt-file search plasma.desktop
