kde 3.1 woes
Okay...somehow, after applying some sort of theme/icon/button change in control center today, kde wacked out and started using up all my ram and was accessing the hard drive like crazy.
Rebooting led to more problems - loading my user account, the splash screen doesn't show up and it takes 5 minutes for the panel to appear and the icons don't appear. I can't do anything under this account, nothing works and the computer sounds like it's trying to run every single program i have.
The root account works fine in kde, the main account works fine in gnome, but i don't want to permanently use gnome as a workaround.
I created a new account and transferred my files to that one, but i'm having some permissions problems - I copied my files from the old account to the new, and I'm not sure how to move all my files without compromising too much security.
Can anyone help? I haven't seen anyone report this problem yet, but I hope I'm not the only one.
