yeah i loved that "Restart X" there was in IceWM, when something is wrong with the DE no need to reboot the whole system, although i never needed it in Ice, and would have loved it in KDE :)
Forgot, now on SteamOS 3, it is rather good, but unfinished, and does not have printing support.

Doesn't Ctrl-Alt-Backspace do just that, restart X?

Yup.  I didn't need to though, killing Firefox recovered the rest of the session.

Still happening, might be time to try something new :eek:

well you taught me something new

Still crashing, time for another distro!

Guess I need to read up on general changes, Wayland(?) being one I've heard of but ignored (unless Arch seamlessly transitioned for me...)  Anyone know of anything else I should know about?
