Klipper, like much of kde4, doesn't seem to work as well as the kde3
version did. I had my settings disappear, and basically copied over and
manually edited as appropriate the config file from the 3.5 version,
which I still had elsewhere. There were a bunch of actions that weren't
showing up even tho they were still in the config file, others had been
overwritten by default actions, etc.
FWIW, one thing I figured out about kde years ago. It's worth keeping a
copy of the entire ~/.kde (or whatever, may be ~/.kde4 in some distros,
etc) saved as a backup somewhere, as every once in awhile, a config file
will "vaporize", and it's very useful to be able to simply copy it over
again from the backup location. Even if it's slightly stale and needs a
couple of done-over tweaks, that's a HUGE bit different than having to
recustomize the ENTIRE config (even for a single app, when it's something
as tweaked as my klipper config is) from the defaults.
