Thread: kde is falling apart

  1. #1

    Default kde is falling apart

    Hello everyone and Season's greetings. This is a difficult to explain problem.

    Today I launched my opensuse and I noticed that it takes so much time for the kde to load . As I also receive some strange messages I took a picture of my desktop after the boot up process.

    ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

    Few things
    -Takes so much time to load (like 3 mins, was 30 secs before)
    -there a problem top left corner of my screen "The process for the file protocol died unexpectecdly". This is a small plasma widget showing the contents of a folder.
    -The KMixCtrl crashes. There is only one sound device at my system which was always . This problem first appeared today.
    -Bottom left of the corner: There was a virtual desktop switcher where you could swap between four different widgets. Right now only one icon is visible.
    -whole system is not that responsive

    I didnt change anything drastically in my system (not sure if any system upgrade was executed)

    I tried to find and see if there any kde log files but could not find any.

    some technical info are :
    cat /etc/issue
    Welcome to openSUSE 11.3 "Teal" - Kernel \r (\l).

    kde 4.4.4 release 3.

    kernels vmlinux-2.6.34.7-0.5-default.gz (and desktop version).


    I mention again that I didnt change anything in my system. It seems that something went corrupted.
    Could you please shed some light and help me?

    Please try the following steps:


    1. At the prompt, type in: su - (followed by your password)
    2. Make sure that your are back at your ~/home/yourname directory
    3. Type in: mv .kde4 .kde4-backup
    4. Type in: rm -fR .kde4
    5. Type in shutdown -r now

    Now KDE will recreate a new desktop setting. However, any settings that you had have been erased.

    Copy back any settings from your .kde4-backup directory under. kde4/share/config.


    Remember to have fun!

    up'ing out of 4.4 into 4.5.3 or 4.6rc1 wouldn't be a bad thing

    First you should do this as su -:

    Code:
    zypper rr 6
    To remove the Videolan repo. It's NOT needed.

    then do

    Code:
    zypper dup -r 1
    When done
    Logout and back in
    or reboot
