Summary: Desktop is corrupt and shifted to one side; Panel
Platform: Ubuntu Packages
AssignedTo: kst at kde.org
ReportedBy: nbs at sonic.net
Version: (using KDE 4.3.0)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
I followed the instructions to upgrade to KDE 4.3 on Kubuntu 9.04 and rebooted.
Upon login, I was stuck at a screen with the KDM desktop background, a thin,
shifted slice of a desktop, panel and Plasma 'cashew' at the top left, and a
panel at the bottom.
The bottom panel's systray was empty. Clicking items in the panel (e.g., K
menu, trash icon, etc.) caused pop-ups to appear at the upper left side, near
the broken-looking view of a desktop.
Following the suggestion of folks in #kde on irc.freenode.net, I moved my
~/.kde out of the way and logged back in. It just hung with the KDM background.
I zapped (Ctrl+Alt+Bksp) X and logged in again.
This time, I got the default KDE background, but also shifted to one side,
wrapping around. A thin checkerboard appears down most of the left-of-middle
of the screen. (I will attach a screenshot.)
I see no panel. At this point, I'm going to try and downgrade back to KDE
4.2.x, since it was working sufficiently well. Thanks and good luck!
