I have deleted the kde folder in ~/.config on several occasions. Probably not official, but effective.

Log out, switch to a terminal ctrl-alt-f1

login

rm -r .config/kde

ctrl-alt-f7 & login again to a default desktop

It's actually just as effective to rename it ... I just add "_BAK" to the end ... and more recoverable.
