Re: [vox-tech] KDE Weirdness

Your best bet is likely to get to a command-line outside of X (I.e. pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1) and using your package manager to reinstall KDE to replace any missing or broken packages. If you're using an Ubuntu variant, Canonical provides a kubuntu-desktop meta-package that can be installed via APT.

Hope that helps.

After a major issue with my Nvidia drivers this weekend (I resolved it by simply booting into the right kernel -- sigh), I'm having problems getting KDE working properly. While I was trying to fix the Nvidia issue, I removed a bunch of packages related to KDE and NVidia, and lost track of what went away. Now I'm having the following issues:

* Keyboard
The really weird thing here is that I can use non-KDE applications such as LibreOffice just fine. It's just KDE applications where my keyboard is non-responsive. I can still use Alt+Ctrl+Fx to get to a terminal, though.

* Window Decorations are missing

* All my desktop effects are disabled

Anyone here have any ideas?
