Description Tim Waugh 2001-01-25 23:32:46 UTC
Fresh install (from oot tree between 7.1-beta3 and qa0125.0) Typing in a URL (such as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla) into the Alt-F2 dialog causes an 'examining file' dialog to momentarily display, followed by a 'konqueror' entry in the task bar, but then it disappears and that's the end of it. Running konqueror from a konsole works fine. I'll attach my .xsession-errors, from a session in which I have several attempts to launch konqueror from Alt-F2, followed by one from a konsole. I see that there are newer KDE packages; I'll give those a go tomorrow.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 10:20:09 UTC
This still happens for me with the qa0126.0 tree.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 10:28:48 UTC
I should mention that this problem also happens when I click on the 'www.redhat.com' icon, and the other URL icons.
Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-01-26 10:52:31 UTC
This is odd... I can't reproduce any of this, and there are a number of "Connection refused" errors in your .xsession errors. Could this be caused by a firewall blocking the connection? Are you trying to launch konqueror in a remote session? Are kded and dcopserver running? Does it still happen if you rm -rf ~/.k* ~/.DCOP* /tmp/mcop*?
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 11:44:45 UTC
IPchains problems was my first thought, and so I made sure that lokkit wrote a 'no firewall' config and did 'service ipchains restart'. It's running locally, on my machine at home. Unfortunately I'm at work now, but I'll see if I can get it to work remotely by logging in using kdm. I'll try removing those files.
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 12:40:30 UTC
Huh. Okay, running Xnest :1 -query localhost -geometry 640x480 while logged in using ssh with X forwarding, it works fine, without me having done anything else. I'll pop back and try it again without changing anything, and again after removing those files.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 13:03:10 UTC
(Still at work) I added a new user with useradd, and logged in as them and clicked on 'Linux Documents', and this happened again, and I have a 'connect() failed' in the .xsession-errors.
Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 13:10:59 UTC
Without logging off, I ran the 'rm' command you suggested, and now it works.
Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2001-01-28 13:29:28 UTC
This also happens on upgrade from Red Hat Linux 7, or at least it did on the machine I'm using now.
Comment 10 Tim Waugh 2001-01-29 18:52:39 UTC
Bero, can you reproduce this yet?
Comment 11 Glen Foster 2001-01-30 00:01:37 UTC
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Comment 12 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-01-30 00:23:54 UTC
Can't reproduce this... Does it happen with glibc-2.2.1-2? With a broken dlopen(), anything can happen in KDE...
Comment 13 Tim Waugh 2001-01-30 11:04:55 UTC
It still happens with 2.2-9 (i386), which is what I had handy.
Comment 14 Tim Waugh 2001-02-02 22:36:08 UTC
This also happens on upgrade from Guinness. Removing just .DCOP* works around the problem.
Comment 15 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-06 17:03:56 UTC
*** Bug 26298 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 16 Tim Waugh 2001-02-07 00:56:52 UTC
I'll try this again on a qa0206.0 install tomorrow morning.
Comment 17 Tim Waugh 2001-02-07 11:51:15 UTC
Okay, I can't get this to happen now. I'm using the 20010205 packages from qa0206.0. I think it must be fixed.
