KnetworkManager cannot start - installation mis-configured

Postby John Vader-Smith on Tue May 08, 2012 8:50 am

Hi,

I'm using the 32 bit KDE version of Linux Mint 9. KNetworkManager no longer works. When I started up Linux the following error message appeared:

> Installation problem - KNetworkManager
>
> KNetworkManager cannot start because the installation is mis-configured.
> System DBUS policy does not allow it to provide user settings;
> contact your system administrator or distribution.
> KNetworkManager will not start automatically in future.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

had this recently. cant remember exactly how I solved it but 1st try in a terminal (without sudo and then with)

knetwork manager
I want to see if you have the same output

my results were:
Typing without the sudo gives me:

mint@dell ~ $ knetworkmanager
mint@dell ~ $ knetworkmanager(2751)/kdecore (KConfigSkeleton) KCoreConfigSkeleton::writeConfig:
knetworkmanager(2751)/kdecore (KLibrary) kde4Factory: The library "/usr/lib/kde4/solid_networkmanager07.so" does not offer a qt_plugin_instance function.

With sudo (before activating dongle):

mint@dell ~ $ sudo knetworkmanager

Typing knetworkmanager without sudo gave this plus the same error message as before:


knetworkmanager(2281)/kdecore (KConfigSkeleton) KCoreConfigSkeleton::writeConfig:
knetworkmanager(2281)/kdecore (KLibrary) kde4Factory: The library "/usr/lib/kde4/solid_networkmanager07.so" does not offer a qt_plugin_instance function.

Typing sudo knetworkmanager actually got it working, but I have to do that every time, it still won't open automatically like it used to. Here's what came up:

same thing happened with me with these 2 commands

These files changed ownership to root from richard

Error: "/var/tmp/kdecache-richard" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.
Error: "/tmp/kde-richard" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.
Error: "/tmp/kde-richard" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.
Error: "/tmp/ksocket-richard" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.

for the 1st one Type
sudo chown -R richard:richard /var/tmp/kdecache-richard
(you will need your root password)

then do the same for the others

that worked for me although I only had 2 folders to change ownership of

I think the problem occured with me when I tried to connect to a LAN ethernet computer before the connection was open or something. I unticked "connect automatically" an just connect when I need to
