    Default 11.1/KDE4: control panel messed up

    Hi,

    I have the problem that the systems part of the KDE control panel is messed up: all icons are on top of each other and quite some cpu resoure is used.
    I managed to remove the systems part completely what frees the cpu resoure, but this of course is unsatisfying.
    then I deleted .kde/.kde4 to create a fresh environment. but to my surprise I had a new environment with the systems part of the control panel showing the same efect???
    I have the latest kde updates installed.

    Anyone has an idea how to reach a normal control panel and/or were to look for the source of the error?

    thanks
    paul

    First, the folder you deleted does not exist, so problem persists. The folder your tried to delete should have been ~/.kde4 .And, there's a less rigorous solution, mentioned in hundreds of posts.
    Logout, at login-screen hit Ctrl-Alt-F1, login as the normal user and type:
    rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma*

    Now the plasma-config files have been removed. Hit Ctrl-D to get back to login prompt, hit Ctrl-Alt-F7 to return to login-screen, login and you will see a clean, fresh desktop.

    ...ok, I was too imprecise:
    I had deleted ~/.kde and ~/.kde4.
    The result was a fresh clean desktop. EXCEPT the fact that in the fresh new panel the icons in the systems part were on top of each other. plasma uses 50% of cpu time.
    is there sth., wrong in the systems part?

    ->solved:
    the problem was that I had qt 4.5.0 installed with kde 4.1.3
    downgrade to qt 4.4.3 made it.
    thanks anyway
