    Unity Fails After Installing KDE (Ubuntu 11.10)


    Hi All,

    Decided to try out the latest release of KDE from the repos in Ubuntu 11.10. It's seems to have broken Unity, when I log in to my user now with unity the unity bar doesn't come up and the top bar has nautilus options (or something similar to nautilus options). I can't access any of my applications, I also can't do alt+f2 to run anything. Any ideas? I would much rather have Unity working correctly than be stuck using KDE (which I am still not much of a fan for). Thanks in advance, hoping that I don't have to reinstall

    I'm not really sure if this will work, but have you tried removing all components of KDE to see if that would fix it for you?

    Apparently something screwed up a folder in my ~/.gconf/apps folder. I'm not positive what yet but after chaning the apps folder to apps.backup I now have full functionality again....very strange, going to play with KDE and see if it happens again so I can head over to launchpad to bug report. Thanks for the link though, I very well might be removing kde completely as it's just not doing it for me....too much like windows
