    Question I can't place files into Trash, and everything is directed


    Screenshot of what Konqueror file browsers says when I try to open my trash can. I didn't have this problem before I install KDE on it, but KDE the best choice for me as of now, and since there's no GNOME2.x and Gnome3 has problems on my laptop, I want KDE. I even customized it a bit to suit me. Can someone please help me.

    Another problem, everything is directed to ~/Documents directory instead of the home directory, and this is whenever I start up a terminal *Including Guake* and everything that involves storing and extracting files. I never got an answer on my previous question asked and another Arch Linux user *Guru* said they had the same problems as well. Is KDE4.6 unstable on Arch Linux? I've done a full system upgrade with
    Code:
     pacman -Syu
    but that didn't work at all either... If anything, I found out that I still have some stuff from other destkop environments I have on my system.

    Also, all of this wasn't a problem until after I install KDE and removed all other desktop environments *GNOME3 and XFCE* and on other virtual terminals, the
    Code:
     Ctrl + Alt + F1 - F6
    work perfectly and the default directory is the home directory, which, as far as I know, is how it should be.

    Hello, and welcome aboard!

    You can find some temporary workarounds for the 15-posts requirement here:

    First, I would try starting with a clean environment. Create a new user and see if you have the same troubles.

    Also, how are you starting KDE? Are you using KDM, startx from the console? If the latter, what's your ~/.xinitrc file look like?

    I've been using KDE on one machine and haven't noticed any issues, but I don't use it that much.

    I worked around the ~/Documents thing where everything is directed to by removing Documents directory, but I'd like to fix that.

    I added it to rc.conf in the Modules so that it starts KDM immediately. Everything works, I even got Alunn to work and give me notifications. The trash thing still doesn't work though.

    I've tried adding a user named Test and making a directory in the Home directory, but whenever I try to log in, it won't let me, it goes back to the login screen.
