    Default kdeinit4


    Hello,
    I have installed Suse11/KDE4. Updated and Ati Graphic Driver works
    fine. After playing around with Designs and themes in KDE4. Compiz 3D
    on. Next start I find the system in runlevel 5, it shows a problem with
    kdeinit4? How I can go back in the x-windows? I don't know much to work
    on the terminal.

    Probably the easiest way for you is this, but you will loose all your
    desktop settings, not your user files, just the settings for your
    desktop - though they will still be available - just in a renamed
    folder.

    From the CLI do this:

    mv /home/username/.kde4 .kde4old

    *(username) = replace with your user name

    restart

    @caf4926, thank you for your help. I try'd the above as root. It shows:
    mv/home/username/.kde4: file not found. in my home directory there is
    this file ".kde4 and .kde, there is no kde4old".
    Because I use a german Suse11 version, some translations are made by me
    and are not the real shows of the english versions.

    You do not need to be root
    there is no .kde4old yet because the command above re-names your .kde4
    folder to .kde4old

    Press : Ctrl-Alt-Backspace

    make sure you are user and do:

    mv /home/username/.kde4 .kde4old

    reboot
    and you should login to what effectively is a new kde4, though all your
    user file will be there.

    replace *username with yours eg; naranala or whatever it is

    the command: "mv /home/username/.kde4 .kde4old" change in my system only
    the kde startscreen, just before the system go to runlevel 5.
