Sorry for the cross-posting, posted this a few days ago in the debian distribution sub-forum, but didn't get any reply for it...
i've got quite a peculiar problem with KDE...
am running kernel 2.6.8, KDE 3.2
when i startx into KDE from root account, everything's fine. i get a nice KDE background, icons are there and the desktop icons are properly aligned.
but when i startx into KDE from my other user account,
i get the same background as the one i see in GNOME,
the desktop icons are not properly aligned,
and at the bottom panel are eight similar gear icons (you know, the gear icon that commonly represents settings. presumaby these icons are there in place of some other icons that are supposed to be there)
when i click on one of the gear icons, it gives me an error dialog:
The desktop entry
has no Type=... entry.
clicking on the other "gear icons" gives me similar error dialog boxes.
like i said, the peculiarities that i encounter as normal user doesn't surface when i startx as a root.
Any idea what's wrong?
Thanks and Regards,
