I have been working with Redhat Linux for a while and this is the only problem i have had with it. I logged in today and my desktop was blue which is not its normal setting, and all my icons were gone. When I look at my home directory, I have a desktop and all the icons are present in the desktop folder. The settings for the background are still the same that I had set previously. The only problem is my usual desktop background and the icons are not present.
Yes I did, and logging in as root give me a desktop with icons, but logging back in under my user name does not change anything, still the same problem. I also tried restarting my computer to no avail.
because the root account doesn't update your user accounts KDE settings... and rebooting doesn't have any effect on files stored on your harddisk..
there should be a configuration thingy for KDE that allows you to set startup applications and such...look in there..I must confess I've never used KDE for any lenght of time...someone who uses KDE feel free to jump in..
either that or search the LQ forum for KDE startup applications, I'm sure this has been addressed before...
