Kde3 programs crash at start: "Communication problem with kded"
Last modified: 2008-12-22 05:28:15 EST
Description of problem:
kde3 programs crash immediately when started. I've tried this with k3b, kmymoney, kpowersave and ksynaptcs, it's always the same. when started from command line, the error is:
kded: ERROR: KUniqueApplication: Registering failed!
kded: ERROR: Communication problem with kded, it probably crashed.
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-5664' to 'k3b'
KCrash: Application 'k3b' crashing...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 10 with all updates as of today.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start any kde3 programme
I've tried uninstalling all kde packages and reinstalling but it didn't help. A search for the error message didn't get me to anything useful. I've no idea what other information is need to solve this, so please tell me what I should try.
rpm -q kdelibs3
rpm -V kdelibs3
Otherwise, logout, try:
rm -rf /tmp/kde-<username>
rm -rf /var/tmp/kdecache-<username>
Hi Rex, thanks for your suggestions.
$ rpm -q kdelibs3
$ rpm -V kdelibs3
doesn't return anything.
I logged out into text console, removed the two tmp directories, rebooted, but the programs still crash with the same error.
Hi again, I found the problem.
Your suggestion gave me the idea to check all installed packages for integrity. It turned out that qt3 had a problem:
$ rpm -V qt3
So I reinstalled qt3 and it works now.
