[CLOSED] Need Help on Upgraded KDE

Postby feed3 » Sun Mar 07, 2010 10:08 pm

I'll try to make it short and as simple as i could;
originally, had post my problems here http://forum.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=109&t=43417
I'm using KDE 4.3.5 previously, upgrading it to KDE 4.4.1 through synaptic using kubuntu backport ppa repos..

What i'm using;
Mint Helena KDE CE X64
in Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop

My problems;
I cant open dolphin as root within my own user account either using terminal through

Code: Select all

kdesudo dolphin
or from the root-actions service-menu. However, another entries in the root-action service-menu seems works to me, it's only for opening file manager. when i run it from terminal, here's the errors i got;

dolphin(9497)/kio (bookmarks) KBookmarkManager::KBookmarkManager: starting KDirWatch for "/root/.local/share//user-places.xbel"

- I had enabled the nepomuk and strigi file indexer
- everything is works when i log to root account even when nepomuk is disabled.. Using root account for my daily computing is not an options for me, not comfortable to do so..

Might have another problems but currently, i'm stuck with this annoying problem.
As a side note, i'm facing the exactly same problem when upgrading kde to 4.4.0 previously.
