Hi all,

I have made a change to the desktop effects setting in KDE 4.1 and now can't see anything except blackness when I login.

I am currently trying to fix via the command line as I can't get past the login screen if logging on normally.

Other details:

Kubuntu is installed as a dual boot via Wubi on a Windows XP laptop. No dedicated partition has been set up.

Regards

Jud

If this is compiz, it's probably best to reset those settings back to their defaults.

In the console terminal:

rm ~/.compiz -r
Or, to remove and restore the defaults on ALL KDE Settings you've made

rm ~/.kde -r

That is if you are willing to loose all customisation you have done to your desktop.

If you wait around a while, someone who works with KDE4 may be able to pinpoint exactly what to do with resetting everything.
