Today I discovered my desktop widgets are hidden. Not sure what caused it, but I suspect one of the software upgrades I did for months.
According to the "Add Widgets..." sidepanel, they're still there. For example there is a bubble with a counter at the topleft of the widget choosing tile:
Rightclicking all over the place does not help to catch the widget with its rightclick-menu didn't help.
I've discovered they're still defined in ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc but unfortunately the panel widgets and other configs are also defined in it.
Is there a smart way to get rid of all the desktop widgets without losing my custom panel?
Because the only way I've in mind is to backup ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc, reboot and copy parts of the old file to the new one.
For sure: I'm talking about resetting desktop widgets, not panel widgets
