Set KDE Style to GTK, Can't Log in!


Okay so i was playing around and set style in KDE to GTK...well.. apparently thats a damn bad idea. So it immediately logged me out, and now i can't log in as my user in KDE or run K based apps from other DE (XFCE). So i guess what im wondering is how i fix this? Or more, whats the config file for kde styles i need to change the style back ?

you can run this command to find the config files for a starting point

Code:
kde-config --path config

.. Or just delete ..
/home/'username'/.kde/share/config/*

.. log out from X .. log in again ..
And a new set of default config files will be created,
when you start KDE ( or a KDE application.)

I'd first try to find what the problem is. It's the first time I've seen this kind of problem. A lot of people use the Gtk+ kde engine without problems. Did you try changing your gtk+ style, preferably to other using a different gtk+ engine? Did you try to run a kde application in a terminal? maybe there's some useful error in there to look at.

None of that... i was running KDE and in KDE settings changed styles to GTK.... Then it just logged me out of KDE and every time i try to login it just logs me back out. Logs into XFCE just fine but can't use any KDE Apps.

I mean: try to run a kde application fron the terminal in XFCE, and see if it spits out any meaningful error.

OR, try using gtk-chtheme or lxappearance to change the gtk style, and see if that helps.
