Why are some applications giving this message and what can I do about it?


Hello cjbrathw,

First of all we need to know more.
So could you please tell us your version of openSUSE?
If you run KDE or GNOME?
Does the application start after this message or not?

Best of luck!:wink:

do these help?

Sorry about that. I am using openSUSE 11.2 with KDE 4.4.1 release 228.
The applications usually start and run, but keeps on spitting out these messages.
