How do I recover KDE settings

I recently installed Mandrake 9.2 with KDE which worked fine. Then I used software installer and installed some harmless-looking KDE rpm package, and from then on a lot of icons disappeared from the control bar and a lot of really important items disappeared from the menu system (I can't even get a terminal from the menu). Also it seemed to forget what certain icons looked like.

Is there any way to get it back into its former state (or close to) without reinstalling linux completely?

I think you can use your mandrake install CD to boot up and run the system upgrade and choose the applications/programs of KDE, which will reinstall the KDE for you, this is one of the way.

or you can try to get the KDE 3.1.4 here ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.1.4/RedHat/9/i386/ and reinstall the KDE rpm into your mandrake should work.

The link I gave is for RH9.0, but I think the can work with your mandrake because mandrake and RH is similar.

Hope this can help
