Sorry about the last send.  You may have to set the ownership and
permissions on your $HOME content, and you have a hidden kde preferences
file in your old home directory that is calling the blue background.

Hi all
I tried Steven's suggestion but must have got it wrong, I made another $HOME
directory and tried transferring the home over but system wouldn't let me
login. Perhaps I misunderstood and should have added a new user that I could
unpack the Kubuntu home into, and then transfer across the home files one by
one. But if it managed to mess up the Desktop at some point could I back out
without having to start over again?
Anyway, it looked impossible so I started over again.  I've with a new Sidux
install on one disk that I want to hold the home data files from a tarred
Kubuntu home directory on another disk.
Somehow, the created mess has properties of it's own. which are neither
Kubuntu or Sidux.
 The point before it does the Kubuntu desktop, there's a prompt for
about using KDE3 setting being used in KDE4, and as soon as i agreed, the
desktop wallpaper went blue.
I think I'll try Duncan's suggestion next and drill down deep into the
of the home directory, There must be something in the Kubuntu home data
that is corrupting Sidux KDE setup. I deleted everything having to do with
that I could find before I tarred the home directory, and it apperared all
was remaining was program data files, but somehow it's still managed to
the Sidux KDE.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
