Thread: KDEInit cannot start /usr/bin/konsole

  1. #1

    Default KDEInit cannot start /usr/bin/konsole


    I have a little annoying problem with 11.1 running kde4.2 from the KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1 repository.

    Each time i start a /usr/bin/konsole from that what used to be the kicker (no idea how it is called in 4.2) I get a modal dialog box with an error saying: "KDEINIT cannot start /usr/bin/konsole"

    The console window however appears but I have to ack the error dialog-box each time before I can use it. The strange thing is, that this happens not if I start the very first console. In this case there is no error dialog box but when I try to start the second, third I get it each time, no matter as what user I am logged in (tried root and my own account).

    If I start konsole manually this does not happen however in the terminal I start it from, I see this message:

    konsole(32543): Attempt to use QAction "change-profile" with KXMLGUIFactory!
    Undecodable sequence: \001b(hex)[?1034h

    It does *not* happen either if I start konsole via the KDE start menu entries. So the only time it happens if i start it using "kicker". In a KDE3 login there is no problem with console, so its probably not related to my .bashrc and other login shell startup files.

    Any idea what this could be?

    Yes, I get the same. There doesn't appear to be a bug logged for it yet either.

    There is already a bug report, however ist for KDE 4.2.60 version, not for the stable 4.2.0 tree. Anyway just I posted a comment to this already existing Bug report:

    You can vote for this bug, perhaps this helps so developers pay more attention to it.
