           Summary: Desktop is corrupt and shifted to one side; Panel
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: ui
        AssignedTo: kst at kde.org
        ReportedBy: nbs at sonic.net

Version:            (using KDE 4.3.0)
OS:                Linux
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!
