Help my kubuntu 4.1 desktop disappeared !
I recently installed kde 4.1 on a new kubuntu box. I had installed some of my software and changed around some of the look/feel stuff (moving panels around, adding my software into kstart, etc).
I wanted to change my IP from a DHCP address to static. I 1st attempted to, through the kstart menu, start knetworkmanager. I could click the icon and nothing would happen. I attempted to re-install the knetworkmanger program. still no joy. Then I noticed a network icon on my bottom panel. I clicked it and sure enough it was running there the whole time. I navigated through the menus and changed from DHCP to my static IP. I then rebooted (now that I think about it I'm not really sure why I rebooted in the first place...). Now upon logging in I can only see my desktop and a single blank bar at the bottom of the screen. No kickstart menu, nothing on the bottom bar, my top that I had added is gone.
What did I do and how do I fix it?
