    Filezilla is not installed by default.
    And we do not know whether you have installed libreoffice.

    In fact we do not know anything about your machine and your installation.


    Hence first you should try to run some of the programs by clicking them in the menu.

    If they all do not run, then type in a console "dolphin" to start the filemanager which is certainly installed.
    Then post all the information given in the console.

    Starting a GUI program from within a terminal is the first we try to see what goes wrong.

    Include basic information about your machine and your installation.

    by the way - i have done some more things,,, see

    background - i tried to find out more about the
    How can I diagnose/debug “maximum number of clients reached” X errors?

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/4499/...ached-x-errors

    cf
    I managed to resolve this "deadlock", where none of the x-tools worked since they too need to connect to the X server, by using lsof -U which lists the processes that are using socket files.

    In this example it was a bad startup script that spawned new "badproc" processes out of bounds.


    Example output from this command

    lsof -U:

    See https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...lients-reached

    Apparently you have a lot of (hundreds) of Akonadi resources. Remove the unneeded ones, in "kcmshell4 akonadi" or "Configure Desktop"->"Personal Informations"->"Configure Akonadi Resources" or by just deleting the corresponding config files in ~/.kde4/share/config/ (akonadi_*).

    hello dear wolfi many thanks for the hints

    did the following

    i used the following command


    Code:
    $ find . -type f -name foo\* -exec rm {} \;
    resp.
    ]
    Code:
    $ find . -type f -name akonadi\* -exec rm {} \;
    to delete all files with akonadi

    after this command i have only 840 files left in the folder...

    martin@linux-a9sq:~/.kde4/share/config> ls -l where previously 2484 files have been


    but when i try to start dolphin with the following command

    Code:
    martin@linux-a9sq:~> dolphin
    Maximum number of clients reacheddolphin: cannot connect to X server :0




    i have no luck...


    Perhaps i did something wrong when i followed this command... that i found here... - google01103 suggested to do ....


    https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=215&t=118461


    Code:
    pkill akonadi_control &
    pkill akonadiserver &
    mysqladmin shutdown --socket ~/.local/share/akonadi/socket-$(hostname)/mysql.socket &
    akonadictl start

    well - after running this command on my opensuse 13.2 machine - lots of things happened in the terminal - but this did not help anyway..

    what should i do now!?


    love to hear from you

    best regards

    I didn't tell you to remove *all* files. You deleted *all* you akonadi resources now.
    I hope you were not actively using it...

    Although the data should still be intact, so you probably could just recreate the ones you need.

    but when i try to start dolphin with the following command
    Did you logout or reboot? Or at least quit akonadi with "akonadictl stop" (run as user), or kill all akonadi processes (e.g. with the system monitor that appears when pressing Ctrl+ESC) if that doesn't work.

    Deleting the config files will *not* stop the running processes.
