Hi all:

I am not sure what caused it, but I can no longer log into my main KDE account properly. After hitting enter at the password screen, the splash screen just sits there and nothing ever happens. If I log in with an alternate account, everything's fine.

On account of me having tweaked a lot in KDE, I'd really hate to simply purge the account and start over. But I can't seem to find any error logs that might be able to tell me what the problem is, to maybe fix it outside of KDE somehow.

I hate to give so little information but at this point, I'm not even sure where to look.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi chix4mat.

A shot in the dark.
Try to deactivate compositing into your ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc
at first.

If this doesn't solve your problem here are more hints given of the most known problems:
