Failed to launch Konsole ... Failed to change $HOME and there is no such directory
Last modified: 2012-11-30 06:45:52 EST
Description of problem: Being in the Gnome desktop when I try to open Konsole Application it is not opening since the last update to Kernel(3.5.4-1.fc17.i686) I receive the error as
"Failed to launch Konsole ... Failed to change $HOME and there is no such directory"
However I have proper home directory when I type "echo $HOME". And the application Terminal is opening fine.
If I try to open Konsole from Terminal application it is opening but not through Alt+F2.
If I login to KDE Desktop there is no problem with Konsole.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Version 2.9.1
How reproducible: Open Konsole application in Gnome Desktop either in Omnibox or through Alt+F2
Actual results: "Failed to launch Konsole ... Failed to change $HOME and there is no such directory"
Expected results: Application should Open but it is not opening.
Probably related to bug 841471.
