~/.kde/share/config/konversationrc

is what I found with websearches. Settings seem to be the file. I dont use the app myself, but if you find out where the file is located, you can check the file accesses so that your user has write access to it. You could even check the config in the app while it runs to check where the config is stored.

i found the file and the permission is disabled and set to ROOT....

Jeffrey Seguerra (jepong) said : #6

i also notice the file is an unknown format....

deleting the file and reinstall konversation solve the problem... why didn't i think of that? lol!
