    Default How to reset KDE 4.3

    Hi all,

    I installed KDE and managed to mess up the panels during the first couple of minutes. I've look around for solutions how to get it back to default. It has been a hard road.

    Firstly, for anyone with the same issue, I learned that you can reset it by pressing CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE. Given that you haven't logged out. Well I had.

    Then I read about deleting .kde and .kde4 folders in the home folder. Did that and it and after starting KDE again it was very slow.

    Then I thought that I would remove KDE through YAST.Well, YAST hangs when i select all KDE packages. The only way, for me, to get YAST running again is to hard reset. I guess there must be a better way. Well, I managed to remove most of the KDE packages with YAST by selecting fewer packages at once. Then i reinstalled KDE and started it again. Just to notice that the bottom panel is still missing.

    So my question is. How do i "reset" KDE to default?

    THanks

    Code:
    kquitapp plasma && rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma* && plasma &
    I think that's about right

    Or just rename .kde4 to .kde4_old

    Could you restart plasma with the command line provided?
    Because it wouldn't work here, IMHO it is "plasma-desktop" in KDE 4.3

    Nope, I renamned the folder. Which was the second suggested solution.

    I can't recall what "error" message I got from the first command.

    Happy the other solution worked. Thanks again!
