kde4 on karmic: plasma-desktop doesn't start by itself after removing plasma-netbook
 
I'm on kubuntu karmic.

I installed kubuntu-netbook (the package) on a normal desktop to see how it works/looks. I didn't fiddle with it very much and tried to remove it.

When I removed kubuntu-netbook, plasma-netbook stayed installed and the look stayed the same. After some fighting with it I removed plasma-netbook. But now when I start kde, what I get is the air background with no other thing displayed on top. No widgets, no panel, no nothing. Only some pop-ups (notifications and so on). What would look like one show stopper.

I noticed that I can press alt-f2 and use that window to run plasma-desktop and get to an almost normal desktop (some icons are missing from the tray, for example).

So, the point: How can I make kde start plasma-desktop automagically?

Thanks in advance!

Could you please provide me the Kubuntu karmic version?

What do you mean? The version of the packages? If so, which packages?

The version of linux are you using...

some linux use the command:

cat /etc/lsb-release
then show us the release (Most related to debian, ubuntu, etc.)

I need to know the linux distro and the release, an example for the results of this command is:

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=9.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=jaunty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 9.04"

Please let me know your comments.
Best regards
Jhon

It's right at the begining of the post: Kubuntu karmic (in other words, Kubuntu 9.10).

Man, I don't care if I have to remove plasma's configuration file (perhaps one rc file somewhere) as long as I keep everything else so that I can rebuild it. Is it possible that if I revome said (or is it _unsaid_? :-)) file, I could get to have a desktop when I start kde?

You can remove plasma conf, take a look in ~/.kde/share/config/plasma*

Guys, after I removed kubuntu-netbook-default-settings (the package.... I hadn't noticed there was netbook stuff still on the host) I got the desktop back. :-D
