My install of KDE just got borked. It goes through it's initialization process up to "Restoring Session", and then freezes at around 71% completion of that task. I've wiped out everything in /tmp, and removed everything in ~/.kde/share/config/session, but this behaviour still remains. Are there any other files I should be clearing out to get a "clean" start to KDE, and where should I look to for logged errors (couldn't find it in ~/.kde or /var/log)?
If your using kdm login manager you could take a look at /var/log/kdm.log. If removing your ~/.kde folder as arooaroo mentioned doesn't work it may be a network issue. This hang-up has happened to me before from improperly configured iptables rules. Also make sure hostname is set up properly in /etc/hosts.
Alright, I'm not using KDM so no easy log there.
I backed up ~/.kde to ~/.notkde
I eventually found out that there was a problem with a file in ~/.kde/share/config which starts with a k. I've further narrowed that problem down to a file that starts with k[v-z]. I'll fill in the suspect file in a bit - right now my desktop is back to the way it should be, so I'm happy
