Thread: Can't login to KDE4

  1. #1

    Exclamation Can't login to KDE4

    I'm running opensuse 11.0 (32-bit) with KDE 3.5.9. Now I installed KDE4.1 (Factory, 1-click-installation).

    When I try to login to KDE4, it shows:

    could not start kstartupconfig4. Check your installation.

    I've no idea how to "check my installation".
    I tried to run kstartupconfig4 from Konsole (under KDE3):

    Code:
    user@machine:~> kstartupconfig4
    kstartupconfig4: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libQtDBus.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN14QObjectPrivate15checkWindowRoleEv
    As root it runs through, but changes nothing.

    I found some older Threads with the same problems but there was no solution for me.

    Ah, thank you. I only had the first one. Now I added the other three, too.

    How can I now reinstall KDE4? Because just adding the repos didn't help.

    You need to open Yast
    software Management
    filter by repo
    select the new repos
    go to packages tab
    choose update all in list unconditionally

    apply

    [edit]
    you can login with kde3
    or
    icewin

    Unfortunately the reinstall (thanks for the information how to do it) didn't help. Still the same error message occurs. But it's not too bad for me. If nobody has further suggestions I'll just stick to KDE3 then.

    (On another note - have you tried renming the .kde4 folder in your hidden user section to .kde4old
    restart desktop - Ctrl-Alt-Backspace?

    Yes, I tried to remove (since I couldn't start KDE4 yet there are no preferences getting lost) .kde4, it didn't help.

    OK
    Try this
    Some have found it works
    Disable the QT you have

    and add this one
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt44/openSUSE_11.0
    Update all in that repo via software management
