Okay, got it to work.
Before I deleted .cache, then restarted X -- didn't work
Deleted .config, then restarted X -- didn't work
Deleted .local, then restarted X -- didn't work
I just deleted all 3 at the same time and restarted X and it is
working again. Guess things really got messed up in my config somehow.
