I have a text file full of tips where I jot down commands that I need to remember.
I've decided to turn them into blog posts instead.

Weird WM troubles? Delete that folder!

Posted 07-09-2017 at 07:19 PM by zapwai

Today was at least the second time that I've removed a folder in my home directory, such as .kde, to fix my issue. The first time was probably six years ago in Mandriva. Somehow I forget to even try this. If I'm looking through log files and can't find the issue, and the OS is otherwise fine, especially if another WM does work, this should be an obvious step to try.

Of course it's wiser to move it, that way you can just copy over some of your old settings.
