Red face Newbie in trouble!


Having just installed RedHat 7.3 I went about kustomizing (he he) my kde3 desktop. In the lower left corner there is a row of shortcuts to programs that the average user is expected to use fairly frequently. However, I quickly decided that I would not use all of them, so I started deleting some. Out went Kate, Control Panel and an icon (looking like the 8-spoked KDE cogwheel) named "applink" or somesuch. However...

After I deleted the "applink" icon, Konqueror (3.0.0-12) wouldn't start from the browser icon in the menu bar. My harddisk hums, 10 seconds go by, and failure. Nothing appears, not even an error message. However, when I click on the "Home" icon, Konqueror starts up nicely in file browsing mode (with the navigation panel to the left and all).

How do I reestablish the link to Konqueror in web-browsing mode? What went wrong?

damn! I'm good!

I just get myself into more and more trouble. Now I've "accidentally" (just call me Curious George) removed the menu bar from Konqueror, and I can't recall the keyboard shortcut to reinstate it. Can any of you fire up a Konqueror session and tell me?

one thing you could try to do is remove the .kde3 directory, and log back in again. this will force kde to reset all your settings, giving you the default icons and what-not back again.

try this from a console:

$ mv ~/.kde3 .kde3-backup

hope this helps!!

I just found out myself, it's Ctrl+M. Haven't tried resetting.

i sometimes have similar problems with KDE (although it's not brought on by deleting the start menu! doh!) and i tend to just log on from GNOME, open a console, and delete that .kde folder (or maybe i just delete some of the files within, i make it up on the spot whenever i need to) and it always logs in again fine next time. annoying though.

Anyway, you said you sorted it, so this post is nothing more than the ramblings of a fool!

I still suffer from the problem described in the first post in the thread. It's only the missing menu bar problem I've solved... :-(

I had a similar problem but not logged as root.Generally ,If you have more than one session you can copy all settings from one session to other session.(It depends what you destroyed).For example you can copy all files and folders from /root/ to /home/(home directory of your destroyed session)/.You must log in as root.If You have distroyed your root session than you can try opposit way(but logged again as root).I fixed so my nightmare.I don't know if anybody can understand what I wrote.
