    If you can still see the widgets icon in the top right corner you should be able to add a menu bar from there................or have you managed to sort the problem yourself yet?

    right click the desktop add panel and add widgets.

    first, make sure the desktop is unlocked, right click unlock widgets

    Or, if all else fails, create a new account and delete your old one.

    I had this happen to me too, a while back. I was trying to switch over to the tradition KDE menu button and I accidentally clicked "Remove K Menu Button".

    I discovered that you can't do anything on your system once the button is gone. It's one of the worst things you can possibly do to your system to make it essentially useless, and I have no idea why anyone would want to get rid od of this button anyway.

    I wound up doing a complete reinstall because of this minor mistake, but hopefully you will be able to avoid this.

    Developers. please fix this. Make it more difficult to remove the menu button by adding a "are you sure" dialog warning or something.

    login user

    /etc/init.d/xdm stop
    rm -rf .kde4

    In the ideal world 'foresthill' you can just add a new one. But it doesn't work very well. Not at all really.

    Kde3 is fine. But 4 is a problem. I now keep a backup of my .kde4

    You missunderstood me, or I didn't explain myself very well. I was talking about adding a new panel and or other widgets. Not about adding a new account.

    What you describe 'foresthill' is a good solution, I agree.
