I’m currently in the process of installing and setting up an openSUSE Linux machine for a very good friend of mine who has no Linux experience at all.
We’ve been going through GUIs last week and she has settled on KDE4 since she liked the look and feel of it. Now, however, I have stumbled upon a problem with OpenOffice 2.4.0 and the latest KDE4 (stable) 4.0.4. When opening the Save/Open window and subsequently clicking on the media-link (media:/) I get an error message saying “KDE mediamanager not running”.
I have used my google-fu to solve this riddle but was only able to find descriptions dating back to 2007 and 2006, all of them in concerning KDE3. What’s the deal here? She works a lot with flash drives, thus the media-link in OpenOffice would be of great assistance. Is there a way to enable mediamanager in KDE4 or is this a known bug? If so, does a workaround exist?
