Thread: Kickoff menu missing

  1. #1

    Default Kickoff menu missing

    I tried playing with a weather widget that ended up in the lower left hand corner somehow.
    Tried to remove it and instead I removed the kicker / start menu.

    Anyone have a clue how I get that back?

    Oh, guess it would hellp...

    System: openSUSE 11.3 (i586)
    KDE: 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 3"

    AH! Thanks for the push.
    The alternative that I came up with (since it's a clean install, no mods yet) is to logon as root and just delete the users entire .KDE4 folder.

    Kind of a "shotgun" approach, but the desired result was achieved..

    But better to know the right way... Kickoff ... Application Launcher .. Lizard menu...too many alias's... makes it tricky to know what to even search for...

    Thanks!

    yep, i _guess_ "dth2" read "how do you log in as root?" rather than
    what i asked SomeSuSEUser "how *did* you log in as root?"

    which is the only reason i can figure out why "dth2" chimed in..
