I recently decided I wanted to get my bluetooth mouse and keyboard setup on my suse 11.2 install. Initially I plugged in the usb blue tooth transmitter and tried to connect the keyboard/mouse but to no avail so I found Kbluetooth ( version 0.4.2-24.15 ) and installed using the package manager. While installing, it gave me a message about needing to install some dependencies so I let it go ahead and install. After everything finished up I closed out and noticed my desktop was in shambles by this I mean some icons such as the icon for the 4 different workspaces is hanging from the top of the screen but begins on the bottom it takes up about a quarter of the screen. The same issue is true for a lot of other icons and my taskbar is along the top and in no particular order… I can give a screen shot if necessary. Everytime I close Dolphin or Yast or any application I’m getting crash messages and error dialog. I was sifting through some of the traceback info and it seems there is an issue with the wrong versions being installed. A line that led me to believe this
KSycocaPrivate::checkVersion: Found version 143 , expecting version 162 or higher.
I’m not sure how to handle this sort of situation. I would appreciate any advice and thank you all in advance for any help.
I must adjust my previous statement… It’s almost back to normal. It seems when I open my ff the top of the screen is missing the minimize, resize, and close buttons. Also there isn’t a firefox bar on the lower panel. Any ideas?
If I try opening Yast the password box pops up but when I type my password the corresponding '* ’ s don’t show up in the password field. Also if I click on the kickoff button in the bottom right it appears but I can’t click on anything because it still thinks I’m in the firefox window so the launcher shows up but it is just transposed over my firefox screen. This is leading me to believe I need to install or reinstall a KDE package.
Also I just noticed that when I open up a shell to try and do anything from command line I can’t type in that either.
Well caf once again you are a genius. Rebooting seems to have fixed it, I should’ve thought of that myself I apologize for having wasted your time. The thing that threw me was that all of the issues I was having started right when I turned on my computer I hadn’t installed or removed anything so I never considered rebooting. Guess this will teach me to never over look the power of a reboot.
