    Default after kde4.2 upgrade


    I fess up to probably having too many repositories enabled, however...
    the only GUI I can currently log into is IceWM, (I don't use Gnome, do
    have KDE3)

    After a recent update, now when I try to access e.g. dolphin, the
    application fires up, but reports an error with .session, klauncher, and
    something called org.forgotten.

    I can access the file system, the internet (using FF, konqi not
    interested in starting, I can access kontact, kmail, but not use them,
    OOo works.

    name changing .kde4 did nothing, deleting the whole of KDE4 and
    starting again with 11.1 and then one-click from kde.org didn't improve
    matters

    The upside (luckybackup, I love you) $HOME only four days out of date.

    Now, I could do a clean install, but wondered if anyone could suggest
    something a bit less neanderthal?

    If you have too many repos you can post the output of zypper ls -u and
    we can help you sort it out.
    And luckybackup is great it has bailed me out in the past

    Thank you for replying. I shall be pruning my repositories in any
    case.

    However I have a more basic problem, I've borked something, that
    appeared to be as a result of my excessive version .01 upgrades, and I
    was looking for clues for an alternative to a clean install.
