kactivitymanagerd probably is for your plasma activities. So some ideas;
- Have you done a clean install of Linux Mint 14, or did you upgrade in place from an older version of Linux Mint? (Or convert an exisiting Ubuntu installation.) That might have result in some of your KDE configuration files causing problems now.
- Which version of KDE are you using? The default, or have you upgraded to 4.10? If you haven't upgraded, you might consider doing that: viewtopic.php?f=109&t=124912#p684113. The newer version might fix whatever problem you are now having with your plasma activities.

Probably something is causing problems in the activity manager configuration. You may try the following to reset your activity manager configuration to its default values.

1. If you don't use activities, just delete the current configuration:
Code: Select all
rm -fr ~/.kde/share/apps/activitymanager

Else, if you do use activities, let's just move this folder somewhere so you can recover it later if needed:
Code: Select all
mv ~/.kde/share/apps/activitymanager ~/activitymanager.backup

2. Log out and log back in. This will create the default configuration for activity manager in ~/.kde/share/apps/activitymanager.

Hopefully that fixes your problem.
