HowTo: Resetting "most used applications" list in KDE 3.x

"I'm sure from time to time each of you likes to reset their most used applications list in KDE. Especially if it's become the goto item for most of you legacy KDE users like myself. Well, before this I'm sure you've searched high and low to find a way to reset that, and ultimately come up with nothing. Well, I have a very simple solution for you that will make resetting this easy. Well, reasonably easy. You'll need to have a little command line fu under your belt to achieve this.

"Alright, here's how easy it is. First, boot your machine until it gets to the login prompt. Next, press ctrl-alt-1 to go to your first virtual terminal. Login with your username and password. That should put you in a command prompt session. Next, navigate to /home/username/.kde/share/config (where "username" is your username).

"Now, once you're in there, type "pico kickerrc" and hit enter. If you're more seasoned and prefer VI, or you don't have Pico, but instead have nano or some other command line tool, you can use that as well, as any will work. But for this tutorial I'm working this through pico for simplicity's sake."
