Desktop disappeared in KDE, can I get it back?
At first I thought this could be a worm, now I am not so sure.
Yesterday I was configuring the desktop in KDE, thumbing through the 3 themes prepackaged with SuSE. I picked one, then I heard the speakers make a funny noise, and the desktop disappeared (ie, where it has a few directories I made on it, and the hard drive etc).
When I clicked on an item in the toolbar, then IT disappeared.
Now whenever I log on as root or the user I was logged in on, there is no background, but the toolbar does show up. I cannot run any programs on the toolbar -- when I click once on something, nothing happens. When I click a second time, the toolbar then disappears.
I am left with a blank gray screen and a mouse pointer, and NOTHING else.
I alt-f1 out and do a halt command to get it to work.
I do not have gnome installed, but loading the windows maker program seems to work. It seems to be just KDE.
Any ideas? Hopefully not ANOTHER reinstall
Thanks for help
