kgpg does not start

kgpg refuses to start after having reinstalled the panel in openSUSE 13.1.

You must do the following to correct this:
  1. Call kgpg in the kicker, right-click the icon and select Add to Panel
  2. Right-click the icon that appears in the panel and select Icon Settings
  3. Select the Application tab and enter the following in the Command text box:

             kgpg -k &

Otherwise, clicking the icon shows a cursor jumping up and down, a process will be spawned, but the application will not appear.

Experimentally, the following succeeds if you do not follow these steps:

As user, not root:
  • Run
         rm ~/.kde4/share/config/kgpgrc
                   to remove the kgpg configuration file
  • Run killall kgpg to kill any existing processes
  • Run kgpg & to start it. It will bring up the configuration dialog and spawn a new kgpgrc file. But it will fail to restart after you close the process unless you take the steps 1-3 above.
