Thread: Yast2 in KDE

  1. #1

    Default Yast2 in KDE

    When I try to run Yast2 in KDE it fails, crashes. When I run Yast2 in konsole using text mode, it works. How do I make it work in graphical, GUI mode?

    Did you add the Factory repo to your system by any chance?
    Please post the output of:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    It is allways nice when you tell which version of openSUSE you use.

    When I run yast2 in konsole, it opens up a Yast GUI. But I suppose that depends on whether $DISPLAY is properly defined in the environment. If I undefine that, I well get the text mode (curses) yast.

    I'm guessing that Wolfi323 is right about factory.

    While running 3.2 Milestone 0 from the live KDE, I tried Yast from the KDE menu, and it promptly crashed. So I tried Yast at the command line (as root), and the GUI opened up and work to some extent. And Milestone0 is a recent factory snapshot.
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5.18.6;

    I am using Suse 13.1. I just added that factory repo and its still giving me some error regarding a qt plugin. I thought surely everyone must be going through this but perhaps its something specific to my system?

    "UI Syntax Error"??????

    most people do not use Factory repos. I can run YaST without any problems.

    Why did you add the Factory repo now?
    Do you want to run Factory, i.e. the development version of the next openSUSE?

    If yes, you should remove ALL other repos and run "zypper dup" to completely switch to Factory. If you don't do that, you might still have a mixture of packages which causes problems like this.
    And there's a problem with YaST at the moment in Factory. Remove the package "libproxy1-config-kde4" to make it work again.

    If not, please REMOVE that Factory repo again! You don't sound like you're experienced enough for using Factory anyway (no offense meant).

    Again, please post your repo list:
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    And please tell, what you really want to do, i.e. use Factory and beta-test openSUSE 13.2 (it's not even beta yet), or run a stable system.

    I dont feel comfortable spilling my computers guts on to the internet. Discussing too much what I have set up by way of configuration gives me the ebby gibbies, almost like selling my soul to the devil or the keys of the kingdom being held hostage by fires of hell. If you cant help me otherise, then I will just suffer in purgatory.

    ???
    Why did you even ask here then?

    My suggestion:
    Remove the Factory repo again (_every_ repo which has "Factory" in its name) and run "sudo zypper dup".
    YaST should work then again.

    But as I don't know which exact repos you have added, it might just as well break your system completely.
    So, good luck!

    yes burning in the flames of eternal d4nation is difficult. Anyways, I did figure out something. I did a man yast and noticed it can run under a QT or a GTK gui. So, since I was getting that QT error, I ran the following "yast --gtk" and it worked. I guess I will try to find a way to tell KDE that when I select the Yast icon in applications to run the command "yast --gtk"

    I also noticed that I am running KDE 3, is there a KDE 4? I have been using GNOME for so long I am just out of sync.

    Quote of the day from the book of Revelation:
    I saw the beast rise from the sea, anyone that is wise will know the name of the beast by its alphanumeric code: M1CR050FT
