Description Shashank Bishnoi 2006-11-17 09:34:33 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

   I've been trying to assign a keyboard shortcut to mark as spam in Kmail (with spamassasin) but it seems to forget this shortut after a while! So it works until I minimise it to the system tray. When I bring it back up its gone!

Just for your information:

I can confirm this on x86_64 Gentoo system with

Kmail, ktorrent and Amarok installed. And of course their deps, but no other KDE-4.3 packages.

Well my first idea proved to be the cure, but the root cause would of course be valuable to you so I will try to get more out of the way my old configs messed this up, but I don't know when I have enough time.

Solution was that I had old configs from earlier KDE-4.* versions and after wiping all old KDE configs the shortcut setting seams to work OK even through multiple quit relaunch cycles.
Comment 7 Sami Näätänen 2009-08-14 22:59:19 UTC
This was the thing that made the difference

FILE: .kde/share/apps/kmail/kmmainwin.rc

-<kpartgui version="412" name="kmmainwin" >
+<kpartgui version="414" name="kmmainwin" >

After this change the shortcut was saved correctly.

I can confirm that changing the kpartgui version just fixed the same issue for me.  I am using Kmail 1.12.1 built as part of KDE 4.3.1 from FreeBSD ports.  In my case I would "lose" my custom shortcuts when I restarted kmail.

Thank you for taking the time to file a bug report.

KMail2 was released in 2011, and the entire code base went through significant changes. We are currently in the process of porting to Qt5 and KF5. It is unlikely that these bugs are still valid in KMail2.

We welcome you to try out KMail 2 with the KDE 4.14 release and give your feedback.
