I'll try to be very clear.
i had an existing user name that worked.
now when i log on to it... it seems to work... screen blinks and goes to black and then takes me back to the login screen. when i log in to a new user that i created in my earlier post it comes back to a blue screen one which seems to be the desk top.
then this is what it said:
i clicked ok... then:
! could not create ~/.kde/share/apps/kfm/magic
then it freezes on a blue background with a purple little box (bottom right) Console log for linux
it cannot be used
this problem started happening when i was trying to increase my screen resolution. maybe adjusting my cache?
