Computer suddenly switched off, then KDE malfuntions?
The box suddenly, spontaneously, switched of: lights go out. Switched it on again by pressing the power button and it works alright except KDE has a black background and the menu does not pop up as usual when the pointer is moved to the base of the screen. No icons only blackness. But the applications work perfectly well, except they have to be started from a terminal - because no icons, menu, etc..
Tried to apt-get install --reinstall KDE but it said kde-base was not going to be installed or something like that (its Debian Lenny Backport, so not strictly stable, if that matters). So am a bit stuck. Any thoughts at all?
