Resetting XWindows Settings
I am in a pickle. Today, I just completed rebuilding my workstation. It is Ubuntu 9.10.
Some KDE files were also loaded when I added Konqueror.
At the end of the day, I logged out, but needed to log back in right away.
When logging in as the primary user, only a small X-term shows at the upper left, and the login won't complete to a fully displayed screen with panels, desktop, and so on. However, my additional users' logins log in with no problems.
For my primary user, what do I need to reset, what files do I need to delete, to get out of this?
I have already reset the .gnome2* directories, and this did not fix the problem.
I've thought of saving off the directories, like Documents to another user, deleting and then re-creating the primary user. I would like to locate and fix the problem, instead of shot-gunning it.
I have not yet looked in /var/log to see what's happening.
I would appreciate any advice or help to reset this.
Since reporting this, I have deleted and re-created the user, and got the same result, a little x-term box in the upper left hand corner of the screen. I believe this could have happened after loading Konqueror. I had originally thought it might be something in one of my config files, but the fact the behavior remains and only for this user puzzles me.
