Hello, hopefully I'm in the right section with this.
I went into Synaptic today to update things as I do periodically. Reloaded the list and applied all updates as usual. However, when the updates finished, I noticed my taskbar color had changed, and all the old default icons (Firewall Setup, Home, Localization Manager, both Get OpenOffice and LibreOffice Manager, etc.) were back on my desktop, when I deleted those ages ago. I decided to restart to see if my color scheme settings would reload properly.
Not so much. After the restart, everything has reverted to it's default state. All my desktop, taskbar, launcher menu, and other customizations are gone, and I'm now getting several error messages about things crashing on startup. (KNotify, KCMInit, KDE Daemon) All of my programs and files seem to still be here, but all the OS settings have reverted to defaults.
Any idea what happened, and if there is any easy way to fix this? It will be a hassle enough to try to go through and re-setup everything the way I had it, but I wouldn't know where to begin with all the errors I'm now getting.
Thanks in advance.
