Meanwhile, you need to get out of plasma and restart it. The details are at http://userbase.kde.org/Plasma/4.1#My_panel_is_gone.2C_how_do_I_get_it_back.3F (I know it's not the panel, but the method is the same.) Basically, you need to run kquitapp plasma; rm $KDEHOME/share/config/plasma-appletsrc; plasma Sometimes you have to run each command separately. Either way, a new login will recreate the necessary files, although you will have to re-configure them to what you want. HTH BTW, the later the version you have and the less likely you are to see this. However, there is always the problem of video cards. Anne
