That's why KDevelop-2 has the setup wizard that runs automatically if you
start KDevelop for the first time. Before such confusion, that you describe,
can happen, the user can set up his/her personal UI. The same is realized in
KDE's KPersonalizer. I think it's just inevitable in such highly configurable
user-interfaces; otherwise users have a lot to do in post-adjustment which
means to find the just 2 or 3 gears in the million to throw.
IMO Gideon needs such wizard as well, though I agree generating the
documentation and indexing doesn't belong to there.
