User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051118 Fedora/1.5-0.5.0.rc3 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
Gaim just closes after a few minutes or if I try to send a message to someone.
I ran Gaim from a shell and got this error:

Creating link /root/.kde/socket-localhost.localdomain.
can't create mcop directory

I tried to delete the .kde folder but it just recreates it empty.
Tried to reinstall gaim - no change.
It was working before I upgraded from FC4.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start gaim
2.Double-click a buddy
3.Send a message

Actual Results:  Gaim exits with error message.

Creating link /root/.kde/socket-localhost.localdomain.
can't create mcop directory

Expected Results:  Let me chat.

I've tried to create a new user and copy my .gaim folder there - error still occurs.
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-12-02 13:48:26 EST
Any different if you disable gaim's sound output?
Comment 3 Peter Quiring 2005-12-03 12:53:28 EST
Yes, then it works fine.
Comment 4 Peter Quiring 2005-12-03 12:58:16 EST
In sound preferences, I switched the "sound method" away from "Automatic" and if
  I try to switch it back to "automatic" it generates the same error msg (even
with all sound options turned off).
At least I can use it now.  Thanks.
