Thread: Dolphin won't launch files

    Default Dolphin won't launch files


    If I click on a file in Dolphin I expect to see it open in the
    appropiate program, like it does in Konqueror. It doesn't work.

    If I click on a text file I get this error:
    KDEInit could not launch '/usr/bin/kwrite'

    Of course kwrite is in /use/bin

    This seems a fairly basic bug?

    It's in /usr/bin

    When this happens to me (mostly as superuser, not much as normal user)
    I have to reboot. Very irritating but for me it fixes it. Wish I knew
    how to rezero it again from the CLI.

    Try rebooting or logging off and on. Should fix it.

    Yes, I meant /usr/bin

    You are right, I logged off and on and it is working now.

    Perhaps I should stick to using Konqueror.

    It happens in Konqueror too for me. Has been going on for three
    releases that I can recall, but 99% of the occurrences for me are as
    root user (superuser).
