I did that bit of script in the Autostart folder last night, and lost my 
kde menu's until I moved it out and rebooted.  But when I had rebooted, I 
found the options I have tried to save many times for konsole were actually 
present and working.  I had already done a sudo chown -R gene:gene on the 
.dke tree, several times to no avail.  Go figure.

I haven't smoked in 24 years, but I am feeling the need of some really good 
weed. It won't help me understand this stuff, but maybe I wouldn't care. :)
And they don't grow it locally.  Best description I'd label the local hay 
is that it would make good battery acid.

Cheers Duncan, Gene.

Sig nuked to get thru the server, else I get a hold msg that says they will 
tell me what they do with the held msg, but in several years, the 
disposition msg has yet to appear in my inbox.
