Good Morning,

let me guess, you've just mounted your old $HOME from kubuntu/suse into sidux, 
am i right? If so, there _must_ be problems. That kubuntu wallpaper must be 
somewhere in your $HOME, i can assure you, that it is not from sidux.

Do yourself a favor, create a new $HOME and copy data (e.g. mail, contacts, 
etc.) and important settings into the new one. Yes, it takes a little time, 
but you will get less problems, using a fresh $HOME-directory (and it even is 
recommended by the sidux-devs, thats why you can't mount a "old" $HOME 
directory in the installation-setup).

I recommend you to read the (fantastic) sidux-manual, you will find plenty of 
informations and hints in there.
