Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63776
Konsole only shows cryptic error message in case session could not be started
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:08 EDT
Description of Problem:
Performed an installation of beta4, choosing KDE, but not gnome.
Within konsole, if you hold the "New" button, you get options for "Midnight
Commander" and "Root Midnight Commander".
Using either of those options launches a new konsole that immediately exits.
Odds are it's trying to run a binary that's not installed.
Either there should be a dependancy on mc for konsole, or those tabs should not
show up unless mc is installed.
Did you install midnight commander?
No, no mc RPMs on the system.
Dependency is far too heavy for this. However, an more verbose error could be
printed than "session midnight commander ended with error code 127" which is
what is printed now... Will forward upstream as a wishlist.
This will be fixed in a future Fedora release if upstream provides a solution.
The issue is recorded here: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120322
Please direct your further comments or remarks to this KDE Bugzilla entry,
The problem will be fixed in the upcoming Fedora Core 5, that is, the session
types that are not available (their executables are missing) are not shown in
