Hi, after upgrading from 4.6 I have a bug with marble globe used as a
desktop background, it makes plasma crash very quickly. I moved aside my
".kde" folder, and in the new session I set marble as desktop
background, plasma crashes very quickly and kept crashing when restarted.
After some grep'ing I replaced "marble" with "image" in
".kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc" and got a stable plasma again.
I am on amd64 with NVidia closed-source drive if it matters.
Anyone can confirm this ?
