KWin crashing

I have a pretty new install of Fedora 16 with the KDE spin running. I installed a theme, I think it was KDust, and since then, KWin has refused to run. It just crashes almost instantly. When I log out and back in, it's fine until I open a window. I ran kwin in the terminal, and here is the output:

Code:
KCrash: Application 'kwin' crashing...
KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/libexec/kde4/drkonqi from kdeinit
sock_file=/home/eggbertx/.kde/socket-eggbertx-laptop/kdeinit4__0
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
Application::crashHandler() called with signal 11; recent crashes: 4
KCrash: Application 'kwin' crashing...
If this is being caused solely by the theme, is there a way I can change the theme to one of the preloaded ones through the terminal?

Also regarding themes, I noticed anything with "Aurorae" in it causes the buttons to flicker when used. II'm pretty sure KDE comes with Aurorae, so what could be causing this?

Re: KWin crashing

On my system, the theme is written in ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals, in the [General] section.
You can search for the theme name in the configuration files:
Code:
grep -i kdust ~/.kde/share/config/*
Hope it helps a little...

Re: KWin crashing

Well here's my kdeglobals file, I don't see anything that looks like it could be causing the problem
Code:
[$Version]
update_info=kaccel.upd:kde3.3/r1,mouse_cursor_theme.upd:kde3.4.99,kded.upd:kde3.0,kwin.upd:kde3.2Xinerama

[Development]
AutoCheckAccelerators=false

[DirSelect Dialog]
DirSelectDialog Size=796,512
History Items[$e]=file:///media/OS/Users/eggbertx/Pictures/Wallpapers

[Directories]
kioskAdmin=root:
profileDirsPrefix=/usr/share/kde-settings/kde-profile/

[Directories-default]
prefixes=/usr/share/kde-settings/kde-profile/default/

[General]
XftAntialias=true
desktopFont=Sans Serif,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0
fixed=Monospace,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0

menuFont=Sans Serif,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0
smallestReadableFont=Sans Serif,8,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0
toolBarFont=Sans Serif,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0
widgetStyle=oxygen

[KDE]

[Paths]

[Toolbar style]

activeFont=Sans Serif,9,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0

[Windows]
XineramaEnabled=
XineramaMaximizeEnabled=
XineramaMovementEnabled=
XineramaPlacementEnabled=
That command points to ~/.kde/share/config/auroraerc
Here are its contents

Code:
[Engine]
ThemeName=FormaN


[Kdust]
BorderSize=1
ButtonSize=1
Still no idea. I tried removing the kdust section, and the ThemeName value, but that didn't change anything.

Re: KWin crashing

Try to find where 'aurora' is defined and replace it.
By the way, I don't find it in the repositories...
Other idea: delete (or move somewhere else) ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc.
There is no guaranty, but it could work.

Re: KWin crashing

Yeah, aurorae doesn't seem to be in the repos, but according to the KDE theming website, it should be bundled with KDE 4.4+ I think

Update: Removing kwinrc fixed it, thanks
