I cannot save settings for QBAT. I click right button, introduce changes and retain. But on the next startup everything changes is reset. I see ~/.qbat (this directoty is empty) & /usr/share/qbat (with 1 .png & 1 .svg files), but in these folders, there are no examples of configuration files. I use Gentoo with kernel 2.6.28, and fluxbox-1.1.1. I run fluxbox with "startx" from console. Can I do anything to the settings saved? What?
