Thread: KDE Default

  1. #1

    Default KDE Default

    I installed Bangarang (subsequently removed it), and had to accept 'changes' before it would install.
    This has given rise to problems, such as the loading of certain Widgets.
    How do I Resolve this problem; i.e. How do I return to Default Installation?

    As root rename or remove the .kde4 directory in your home directory

    I think that there may be an associated problem.
    I can just remember seeing a message relating to the mounting of the HDD, or, a partition; Didn't manage to see the
    message in its entirety; How can I check, in order to see if such a problem exists?

    Just had a chance to check, and I don't appear to have a .kde4 in my Home directory,
    but there is one in Root (etc); Should I remove that one?

    Found it, didn't know that it existed as a Hidden File.
    There is a kde file and a kde4 file; The kde4 file will not Move, when I try sending to Trash.
    Is there a means, by which I can 'Go Back in Time', to order a Restore??

    You must not do it while logged in as your self like changing tires while driving down the road


    Log in as root to a terminal at grub press e find line starting linux go to true end (it wraps) add a space and a 3 press F10 to continue boot. log in as root change name of the directory mv /home/yourusernamehere/.kde4
    /home/yourusernamehere/.kde4.bak

    reboot

    log in as yourself with default kde settings

    Unless I totally misunderstand, when I try to login as Root, it indicates that /home/name, does not exist.
    Could this be related to the Message w.r.t. the Hard Drive not mounting?

    20 GiB of Hard Drive, has Home on it; 276 GiB has the named (Users & root), folders on it.
    I think it was the larger partition which wasn't Mounting.
