DO NOT use any repo that is not specifically created for tumbleweed,
doing so can/will mess up your system.
First try and see if the problem exists for a newly created user.
yes the problem persist also with a newly created user.
Hi, after logging in my kdeinit4 crashes to.
I use KDE 4.9.1 on openSUSE 12.2 and it started with this today.
The last time I was logged in (couple of days) my themes seemed broken, picking opensuse air for instance gave transparancy on a left vertical panel but not on the top horisontal one. As a remedy of this I tried to “reinstall unconditionally” or whatever for some kdebase and libkde packages and their branding. All of them are from x86_64 KDE49 repository.
Logged out and then both kwin and kdeinit4 crashed. I’ve done the same for the packages again and now all I get is kdeinit4 for whatever reason.
I don’t know whatever I’m the cause of this or not because earlier I also got an update of a bunch of ktp packages so I wonder if that may have anything to do with it? I’m thought about disabling ktp/telepathy but I don’t know how to do that except disable the accounts.
I don’t really know where to go from here. Remove all KDE packages and install them again is one way.
Currently running razor-qt with openbox instead (kwin crashed now and then if using kwin with it.)

Update hold newer branding packages + kdebase4 and kdebase4-branding-opensuse I believe.
Packman hold newer gstreamer and libgst* packages.
I think I solved deleting kde49 repo, switching everything to tumbleweed repo, had a problem with kdm, changed the theme to opensuse, and solved, but now I’m with kde4.8.5 :-((, I will try to use kde49 rpos at december when I have more time to solve problems:-))
many thanx, ciao, pier
