Question Debian Testing (Bullseye) KDE How Do I SAFELY "Reset" Plasma


{{NOTE: I had a stroke in 2011 and have short term memory loss, and I am somewhat brain-damaged}}

Yeah.. I use testing.

1: About 2 weeks ago, an update "broke" Plasma, as I do not get the some of "eye-candy" that I like.

2: I created a temporary account, and the "eye-candy" works fine on the temporary account.

3: I renamed my .kde directory to .kde.old and did a reboot... well, I was forced to do a restart and move .kde.old to .kde, as my desktop environment "froze up".

4: Thus, the problem is with my Plasma settings, but I cannot fix the problems with the KDE systemsettings5 configuration tool.

*: So, the question is how can I safely "reset" my entire Plasma "system"?

Yup, that's it!

Thank you for your time, and have yourself a good day!

OK, I am a dumb-{rectum}.

My problem with plasma was my improperly setting up the KDE configuration.
Under "Workspace Behavior": "General Behavior": "Animation Speed"

I had set it to Instant, thus my "eye candy" wasn't visible because the of REASONS!
I changed it to the middle of the "slider" and it works perfectly.

I guess it ALWAYS worked perfectly, but, as I had said at the top, I am a dumb-{rectum}.

If anyone live in Fargo North Dakota, you should call me a dumb-{rectum} in person, please......
