Hi My Kubuntu installation crack when I try to enable wobbly windows. The screen becomes black, and when I restart the computer the log-in page is as usual, but after login the black screen returns.
I can live without the wobbly windows, but can anyone help me get rid of the black screen. I have a feeling that Kubuntu is working underneath the black screen, but Im not sure.

Im new to Linux so please be gentle:-)

TRY ALT + F2 THEN TYPE STARTKDE....

You may not be able to see what you type so look at hands to make sure your entering right keys....

But I do expect its your graphics card not being supported...


good luck

Try Alt+F2 to get to a command line. Then log in, and type...
nano ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrcThen use the cursror to move to the section entitled [Plugins] and change the line that reads...
kwin4_effect_wobblywindowsEnabled=trueto...
kwin4_effect_wobblywindowsEnabled=falseThen hold Crtl and press X. Press y to save, then press Enter to confirm. Then Ctrl+Alt+Del to reboot.
