Description of problem:
After installing the latest KDE updates via up2date I get the following error
1. When accessing Start Here...
Error - Konqueror
The process for the vfolder protocol died unexpectedly.
2. When Attempting to change themes from Contol Center.
Sorry - Control Center
Theme does not contain a .themerc nor a .theme file.
Also after the last one I see folders in my home directory for each of the
themes that I attempt to select (Bluecurve, Default, Eclipse, etc).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Start Here icon on the desktop
For themes error
1. Open Control Center
2. Select Look & Feel
3. Theme Manager
Now there's an error message
For the second part Open Home directory and look for the newly created folders
(these folders have a copy of the theme files)
There is a previous mention of this happening before on BUGZILLA #72393.
The vfolder problem is fixed in 3.0.5a-5, which you can download from
it's strange. I cannot reproduce the bug in theme manager. It works for me here.
Could you please remove ~.kde/apps/kthememgr/ and try again if it works
Just downloaded the file and applied it and the error is still there...
This is a brand new installation of 8.0 with all available updates per UP2DATE
installed. This is a list of all the KDE packages that are installed (rpm -qa
there is a kde 3.1.1a for RHL 8.0, which is available on
It's definitive fixed in this version.
