my kubuntu 11.10 desktop is not keeping its settings


My kubuntu 11.10 desktop is no longer keeping the settings that I set it to. This just started today after I unplugged the system because we were starting to get some lightning. Now all of my pre-sets are resetting everytime I log out. Another thing is that the graphics look a little weak. By that I mean after you stare a something for a long time you can tell that its just a little off and that is what my screen looks like. A little off, I think it may be the font, and it's a bit less focused. Blurry somethings on the screen aren't in focus all the way, like it's to stretched out.
Thank you

When I try to adjust the monitor settings the taskbar disapears. And my wallpaper falls to default image everytime I log on as well.

Thank you

My response to the check /var/log/Xorg... didn't reveal to much. I'm thinking that I have done it incorrectly.

:~/Documents$ /var/log/Xorg
bash: /var/log/Xorg: No such file or directory


:~/Documents$ check /var/log/Xorg
No command 'check' found, did you mean:
Command 'vcheck' from package 'vcheck' (universe)
Command 'mcheck' from package 'mtools' (main)
Command 'icheck' from package 'qtmobility-dev' (universe)
Command 'icheck' from package 'icheck' (universe)
Command 'acheck' from package 'acheck' (universe)
Command 'chuck' from package 'chuck' (universe)
Command 'fcheck' from package 'fcheck' (universe)
check: command not found

Thank you

For a better understanding on your post you should use [] around codes and then use the [/]at the end of your code like ["code"]type here some command line code[/"code"] (without the quotation marks).

Now to see what is on your logs you can type on your terminal
Code:
 cd /var/log/
then type
Code:
ls -a
you should see some Xorg logs there from different version, some old and some done more recently. To see the content of these files you can type
Code:
cat Xorg.whatver version
It will be lots of info flying infront of your eyes, so to make it slower you can type
Code:
cat Xorg.0.someversion | less
then once your screen is full of text you can press the space bar to see more until you get to the end of the file.
Use the Q key once you are done with the file to go back to the command line prompt
Use the Tab key to auto complete file names after typing the first 3 characters.

I have no idea what to look for on these files so you can paste the result here so somebody else might know and will tell you what to do to keep your settings.

Good luck to you
