Second, the keybindings have turned into a helpful crutch for me for when kwin crashes. When kwin crashes, the top of each window disappears (and some functionality fails) so there is no way to drag the window, resize it, open new tabs in konqueror, use the kicker panel, etc. Is there any way to restart kwin when kwin crashes, without restarting X?


I have managed before to restart kwin by pressing Alt-F2 or Win-Return to bring up the Run Command dialogue. When that hasn't worked I switched to a text console (i.e. Ctrl-Alt-F2), logged in as the same user ran the following commands:

<tt>$ DISPLAY=:0.0 kwin &
$ disown</tt>
