Fixing Kate's 'save session' bug
If Kate is not saving sessions
Make sure the active user own all files under
sudo chown -R username:username /home/username/.kde
Open ~/.kde/share/config/katerc and verify if these are in there:
[General] Last Session=mysession.katesession Restore Window Configuration=true Session Exit=save
Note: There has been a long outstanding bug where sometimes some of the settings are not properly saved.
