Description Evert 2008-06-15 16:14:58 EDT
I have installed a fresh installation of Fedora 9, with all the required updates.

However, when i run ktorrent, i got an error saying:
KDEInit could not launch /usr/bin/ktorrent, in a window with the title: Sorry,,
plasma workspace

ktorrent starts normally when i close this plasma window
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-06-15 16:32:31 EDT
wow, never seen or heard of that before.  By "when I run ktorrent", you mean via
the kickoff menu?
Comment 2 Evert 2008-06-15 22:52:06 EDT

error
Comment 3 Evert 2008-06-15 22:53:29 EDT
both,, via kickoff and desktop shortcut
Comment 4 Roland Wolters 2008-06-17 08:48:48 EDT
Please try if the error also occurs when you run ktorrent from a terminal.
(Open "konsole", type
ktorrent
and press enter)
If yes, then please copy the output in console and attach it to this bug 
report. Also, please check your ~/.xsession-errors and post the content 
created right before and after you tried to run ktorrent. In case you don't 
know how to monitor ~/.xsession-errors :
Just before you try to start ktorrent, open a terminal (like konsole), and 
type 
tail -f ~/.xsession-errors
. That will monitor the file and will show all new content.

Besides, does the application actually start up? And what is about other 
applications? Are they working fine?

Hello

running ktorrent from a terminal does not create the error.
When i close then,, i get: 

localhost ~]$ ktorrent
[evert@localhost ~]$ QCoreApplication::postEvent: Receiver is not a valid QObject
QCoreApplication::postEvent: Receiver is not a valid QObject


localhost ~]$ tail -f ~/.xsession-errors

Yes,, the application does start and works fine
I experiencing some other small problems with other apps, but these
problems/errors are not related to this problem i think. eg: amsn starts, but
when i want to chat the app will go into a sort off loping between the main amsn
window and the contact's chat windows. ctrl+alt+backspace will couse me to log
out, and after login amsn is closed. Now running kopette, pidgin is a good app also.

Yes,, i noticed bug 184337

Thanks

remark: pls ignore the line: ktorrent is already running !
i started ktorrent tice by mistake
Comment 7 Roland Wolters 2008-06-18 05:38:19 EDT
Was the tail output created when there was the Plasma error? If not, can you 
create a tail when you see the actual bug?
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2008-07-27 19:23:19 EDT
just tried ktorrent-3.1, can confirm issue gone (for me).
Comment 9 Steven M. Parrish 2008-07-28 16:42:30 EDT
Is this still an issue or has this been resolved to your satisfaction.
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2008-07-28 16:49:41 EDT
ktorrent-3.1 isn't available for F-9 (yet).
Comment 11 Roland Wolters 2008-07-28 19:31:45 EDT
Ktorrent 3.1 requires KDE 4.1, so it will not be available for F9.
Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2008-07-28 19:52:53 EDT

Comment 17 l ciani 2008-08-21 05:14:33 EDT
Updated to ktorrent-3.1.2-1.fc9.

I still have an issue when I run it from krunner - I press Alt+F2 and I key in "ktorrent".

Krunner gives me 2 choices: "execute ktorrent" or "KTorrent BitTorrent client".

If I click on "KTorrent BitTorrent client" I get a pop-up window saying "KDEInit could not start /usr/bin/ktorrent". Ktorrent starts and runs smoothly.

If I click on "execute ktorrent" I don't get any pop-up windows. Ktorrent starts and runs fine.

Also, when I execute "ktorrent" from konsole I get this message: "ktorrent(20516)/kdeui (K*Gesture*) KAction::setGlobalShortcut: Attempt to set global shortcut for action without objectName(). Read the setGlobalShortcut() documentation."

If I run ktorrent from the KDE Menu I don't get any error message at all.

In any case ktorrent starts and runs smoothly.

Seems related to

someone there commented:
"removing: "X-DBUS-StartupType=Unique" from desktop file solves this problem "
hmm...

ktorrent-3.1.4-1.fc9 on kdebase-4.1.2-5.fc9 I am happy to report that the annoying pop-up window saying "KDEInit could not start /usr/bin/ktorrent" is gone.

However If I run ktorrent from konsole I still get the following message: "ktorrent(31548)/kdeui (K*Gesture*) KAction::setGlobalShortcut: Attempt to set global shortcut for action without objectName(). Read the setGlobalShortcut() documentation."

Thanks a million for ktorrent!!!
