Thread: KDE 4.3.1 problems

    Default Re: KDE 4.3.1 problems

    Try renaming your ~/.kde4 folder, perhaps?

    It's not the most elegant solution, and it involves setting up your desktop again, but it normally works when everything goes a bit haywire.

    That might do it. Notice advice is re-name but you have to do it outside X
    and do:
    Code:
    mv /home/username*/.kde4 .kde4old
    Any settings you need will be in old
    Tumbleweed_KDE

    I'll try that but I'm afraid I will lose all my settings.
    Thank, thank you very much,

    Well renaming the .kde4 folder did the trick but all settings are gone.

    What really kills me is the fact that I don't know what really happened

    Thank you for all your help,

    Pancho

    Those settings reside in ~/.kde4 directrory which you moved (renamed). Most users just start over with new desktop config, but you could open Dolphin in split view and selectively move files from your backup (renamed folder) to ~/.kde4/share/config (one at a time), but you will have to restart desktop each time for these setting to take effect. One or more of these old config files was causing problems for you, so if you reinstate those, your problems will return. If you're not sure what you're doing, this could get messy, hence the first approach is more practical.

    BTW, I recommend backing up your working ~/.kde4 directory once you have the desktop configured the way you like.
