Anyway, I found the cause and it indeed seems like a bug. Explanation: Konqueror breaks the configuration (located at ~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc) when using the "Set as background" function in some conditions. The solution: Konqueror adds a part starting like [Desktop0Screen0] in ~/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc Removing that part does the trick. Can someone confirm this? If yes, I'm gonna file a bugreport on the kde bugzilla or the mailinglist. Greetings, Sandro
