KGet on 11.4 crashes/ does not open

I installed 11.4 recently after my previous NEW WD hdd crashed! I was able to recover all my data, though, especially the pictures of our 4 month old girl! PTL!

Anyway now KGet keeps on crashing. It does not even open. The KGet icon never appears anywhere on screen

I do not know where to look for more info
I have re-installed kget via YAST but no luck

Advice please


try to start kget from a terminal and tell us the error messages it gives out.



linux-wuki:/home/jandre # kget
unnamed app(5863): KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server: “Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.”

unnamed app(5859): KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly.

linux-wuki:/home/jandre #
Code end

Does this help?



I found the following advice on this problem here:
KMix won’t start up in SUSE 11.4

Try running this command before you run kmix

eval dbus-launch

KUniqueApplication reads the environment variables DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS & DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID and sometimes they don’t get set, running eval dbus-launch sets them, when you run it you should get something like:


Then try running kmix, I don’t know why they don’t get set or how to make it permanent, but if it works you could add a script to .kde4/Autostart containing

eval dbus-launch
exit 0

Can’t guarantee it’ll work in your case, I’m not really all that knowledgeable in these sort of areas, but it’s something I came across in the past on googling some other app giving the same errors that worked for me, with any luck it may do the trick for you too … best of luck

The problem there concerned kmix, but try to use the same with kget…
