Kicker doesn't start automatically

I use Kubuntu 8.04. I used kde-tweak( to change some kde settings. Well I changed the settings in the panel section to hide panels and kicker(the kde taskbar) didn't start automatically.

I figured this out and changed the settings back to normal in kde-tweak. But it seems that it doesn't revert the settings to original ones and I need to start kicker manually.

Now the only option left is to edit the configuration files manually which has been changed by kde-tweak. But I don't know which configuration file to edit? Please help me.

Did you manage to get Kicker back?

I have never used kde-tweak I'm afraid but long time ago I did mess up my KDE setup - and I used an UGLY solution to make KDE usable again - first I backed up some apps' directories in ~/.kde/share/apps (in particular amarok) and then deleted the whole ~/.kde directory. After log-out/log-in KDE reverted to distro's defaults (obviously I lost all my customizations but got the desktop back in usable state). But it's probably not the best solution.

Delete or rename the file "/home/user/.kde/share/autostart/panel.desktop". This solves the kicker's problem.

Still looking for solution to the log off dialog problem.
