I'm running kubuntu 8.04 with KDE4 on an eee pc. When I login, it goes through the "appearing icons" loading phase, then when the loading is done, where the screen would usually go blank and then the desktop interface would appear, ... all I get is a black background and a oxygen-themed mouse pointer (which can be moved).
Nothing else - including keyboard shortcuts (ie Alt+F2 isn't doing anything). If I login with just a shell, startx gives a few of these:
expected keysym, got XF86KbdBrightnewwDown: line 71 of pc
Are they relevant, and more importantly, does anyone know what's going on? Where do I look for the error log so I can debug this?
