kde kcontrol problem
 
i am playing with my kde 3.2 themes. my system is now unstable (when in kde). my kcontrol wont run. i couldnt even run kde without it freezig. then i moved .kde restart kde. it worked fine. then i moved .kde back to /root/ and my system will start now , but still no kcontrol. how do i troubleshoot this???

thanks

Hi afrodocter,

Something's up with your KDE configs, by the sounds of it. That's why KDE will run when the old .kde directory is moved elsewhere. I'd suggest you let the system make a new .kde directory and reconfigure your desktop from scratch. You can still copy your bookmarks, menu entries, application data, etc., over from the old .kde directory.

You probably don't need me to tell you this, but it isn't such a great idea to run Linux as the root users. (Unless your running Lindows/Linspire, where you're logged in as root by default, as I understand.)

Cheers,
Tim
