KDE Control Center


How does one remove items from the KDE control center? My KDE Control Center seems to have to themes managers, one that works and one that does not.

Guess which one I would like to remove?

Also, is it possible to reinstall the KDE menu list? The menu editor did a number to mine.

The theme managers are built in. If you use KDE 3.3 and below, one desn't work properly but in KDE 3.4 they both work fine. As for the menu, I think you can restore it buy deleting the stuff in .config/menus or .local.

Thanks for the help... I will check into the .config/menus .. .local, however, prior to altering the menus my control center worked fine, one theme manager. Now a few modules are repeated and the screen saver list is vacant. A little glitch in my configurations, but which one? Everything is fine in root, it is only in my account.

The menu corruption is a common problem. A few years back I had a similar problem, and I see, after googling, that the problem is persisting. Does anyone know why?

It would seem coustomizing the menu in KDE is a no no.

Thanks so much reddazz You are a big help. That did it, and it also corrected my control center issue. I am not sure how the two are related, but they are. Everything work fine now.
