Failing plasma applets on KDE login
Last modified: 2010-02-05 10:42:37 EST
Description of problem:
Failing Plasma applets upon login to KDE.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Commercial NVidia X11 driver version NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.42
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to KDE
Following ksplash transition to the desktop...
- Empty white box appears in upper left of screen (or just black screen) for approximately 25 seconds
- Folder and trash plasma applets fail with the message "The process for the desktop/trash protocol died unexpectedly."
Successful KDE login. Applets loading successfully.
Experienced this exact problem on FC11 with "qt-4.5.3-7.fc11" during updates-testing phase. Problem was reported on the testing site and was resolved before it was pushed to stable.
The pausing white box is likely a combination of the qt-glib-event-loop issue (see upstream bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=211250 ) and an nvidia issue, see bug #533620 and http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/Common#Problems_when_using_the_proprietary_NVIDIA_graphics_driver_.28especially_with_KDE.29
The "process for desktop/trash protocl died" issue was seen during f12 development, and was (at the time) determined to be a glibc/prelink issue, see bug #515539 Perhaps you could try some of the workarounds listed in
So, going forward, some initial advice: One bug/issue per report please. :)
Otherwise, given the tangled nature of what's given here, I'm not sure there's anything new on top of what's already known and reported.
Agreed. Workaround seems to work. We can assign this as duplicate of bug #51539. I'll follow-up on the xorg issue separately.
