Description aspnes 2008-07-31 17:17:37 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

Many tools offer dialogs with a "do not ask again" option.  There does not appear to be any standard mechanism (or in many cases any mechanism at all, short of editing well-hidden config files) for undoing this choice.  This allows naive users to make permanent changes to the behavior of their KDE installation that can't be recovered from.


Insert new media.

Click "do nothing" and "do not ask again".

Seek in vain for a control panel option that undoes this.

(other examples abound---this is a general usability problem for almost all KDE applications.)
