What did you try? Where did you try it? You've not given us enough information to even know what you've done to this point let alone what you need to do or what you're realistically trying to accomplish.

all i did was
Code:

mv user galactus
and short cuts and menus were not working so i just changed it back. it gave me the error to .kde/share/kdeglobals i did not change anything int he file but i was trying to see if there was a line that specifes the home folder path and i could not find it so i closed it. im just asking if theres a proper method to changing the home folder name or if its a conf file i need to edit.
