    Default How do I go about restoring default the openSUSE 11.3 KDE 4 desktop.

    I have managed to delete my default openSUSE 11.3 KDE 4 desktop. I also ended up with this seemingly unchangeable desktop set up. How do I restore the original openSUSE 11.3 KDE 4 desktop ?

    Thanks

    To restore the KDE desktop back to defaults log out and Press Control + Alt + F1. Then login with your username and password. Then run
    Code:
    mv ~/.kde4 ~/.kde4-old
    Then run
    Code:
    logout
    to logout and press Control + Alt + F7 to get back to the login screen. Once you login you will get the default KDE.

    I tried that and had bad results. No start menu, panel or taskbar. I must have done some step wrong. Your suggestion did give me the idea of restoring my .kde4 directory from the last good copy.

    What I did to solve the problem was drop to the CLI and log in then open midnightcommander and delete the .kde4 directory and then copy the copy from my last resync of my /home directory. This got me back to my kde4 desktop after logging out and logging back in.

    Thanks again for the help.
