KDE / Gnome theme overwriting desktop


I use KDE. Recently I did two stupid things: 1) I tried out all available GUIs of my distribution and then reset to KDE as the default login screen and 2) I played with the control center of KDE.

Result: After boot and login I get for a brief second my old KDE desktop, which is then overwritten by a mangled Gnome theme. (Originally it had only seven icons all at the same spot, so I had to move them to get them a readable subscript). The kicker menu of KDE (!) stays on the lower border of the screen, though.

Help! How do I get back my KDE screen when KDE is already default?

Hi

hmmm kinda weird, what happens if you add a testuser
and let him login to KDE
If testuser is allright then try this; remove all the . files or . dirs
that relate to the KDE desktop, like .kde, then log back into
KDE
And maybe there is something running that is in your .kde/Autostart

good luck

Check Nautilus isnt running, as that thing will give you the Gnome desktop if not run 'nautilus --no-desktop'.

Edit: Less than a min slow, damnit!

Good morning everybody, and my thanks! You did it, phew. I used rshaw's suggestion, so I didn't try out whether Proud's way is equivalent and the longer way of mrGee was not necessary, I just was happy to have escaped . Thanks again.
