xfce crashed and won't restart after window decorations theme change. Slackware 13.1
Running slackware 13.1 x86. Everything's been working fine until I decided to change the window decorations theme. As I was browsing through each one (with down arrow on keypad) xfce suddenly crashed! I attempted startx to go back in but nothing. Monitor seemed to go into sleep mode and had to press power button for shutdown. Restarted, logged in, did startx, and got this:
Fatal server error:
exaGetPixmapFirstPixel called for invalid bpp 1
Tried startx again just for kicks&giggles and monitor goes into sleep mode again, and I have to push power button for shutdown...
Other manager's seem fine. FVWM (love that one!), window maker (this one too!!11one) and fluxbox.
So I guess my only option is to find where xfce4 stores the window decorations themes configuration. I looked in my /home/user/.config/ and seen some xfce related folders but don't see where it stores any theme-window decoration settings. I don't have a clue where it would be.
Any help with this would be great thanks!
EDIT: I just deleted files in /home/user/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/* | So if anyone else has this sort of issue this is how I resolved it.
It also seemed to keep all my other settings like my taskbar location and all taskbar launchers and menu where I had set them so that's definately good!
