    Unhappy findServiceByDesktopPath: not found

    Hello All,

    After applying the openSuSE Kernel patch for whatever the most recent update was, I found that it breaks the ATI driver. I re-installed the commercial ATI driver by hand, now I'm getting a strange behavior from KDE 4.1.

    My system is OpenSuSE 11.1 - 64bit.

    By clicking on DESKTOP SETTINGS, I get the System Settings control panel. Everything works as normal except for "Desktop". Running it from the konsole shows "findServiceByDesktopPath: not found" spammed tons of times. Eventually I am returned to a prompt with a System Settings window and only a spinner if I mouse over it. Everything else works normally, so I'm at a loss to figure out what broke. This affects my user and root, so it's not something local to me, although I can't fathom how the kernel patch and the ATI install might have broken something.

    Any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

    What do you see if you run:

    sudo tail -f /var/log/messages

    If I run system settings from the command line I see tons of 'findServiceByDesktopPath: not found' at the command line.
    I see no error dialogs.
    I can access the Desktop settings without any problems.
    I am running 32 bit KDE 4.1.3 release 75.2 on 11.0.
    Whcih makes me _suspect_ the 'findServiceByDesktopPath: not found' maybe unrelated.

    Having said that the print-screen shortcuts are not recognized when set via system settings so it seems this app is still very green.

    Hope that helps?

    Can you post the output from
    Code:
    # systemsettings --version
    Then as an ordinary user, run in a separate shell:
    Code:
    # tail -f .xsession-errors
    Then in another shell, as the same user, run:
    Code:
     # systemsettings --nocrashhandler
    What is the output from the systemsettings shell screen?

    What do you see at the same time in the xsession-errors tail shell screen?

    For whatever reason this has resolved itself.

    I am completely at a loss as to what caused it for what fixed it. Sorry. But I appreciate the efforts to help.
