    KDE goes Kaput

    Last night my desktop went haywire. For some reason it just......went. (I lost the task bar and all Icons).

    This created a problem and I didn't know how to get back. After rebooting (I know I shouldn't have, but could get no results elsewere).

    My question is this:

    Is there a keystroke combination that will allow me to go into terminal mode? If I had that I would have been able to possibly shutdown properly.

    I ended up doing a rescue (took all of 5 min). In the rescue I chose the option to upgrade rather than a new install. After rebooting everything was Intact!!!!

    I am liking this more and more. Has anyone else ran across this problem?

    Thanks all,

    Just to build on what Juan Pablo said, CTRL-ALT-F1 through to CTRL-ALT-F6 works. CTRL-ALT-F7 gets you back to X (KDE for you).
