k3b doesn't start and a strange message appears
« on: May 08, 2011, 01:19:11 pm »

Yesterday I installed k3b and used it successfully once (I copied a CD) launching it by terminal.
Today I added it in .icewm > menu-multimedia and tried to launch it by icewm menu: the first image of k3b appeared but hanged in the middle of the screen doing nothing, so I rebooted and launched k3b by terminal obtaining:

alberto:$ k3b
DCOPClient::attachInternal. Attach failed Could not open network socket
DCOPClient::attachInternal. Attach failed Could not open network socket
---------------------------------
It looks like dcopserver is already running. If you are sure
that it is not already running, remove /home/alberto/.DCOPserver_vector.linux.net__0
and start dcopserver again.
---------------------------------

DCOPClient::attachInternal. Attach failed Could not open network socket
DCOPClient::attachInternal. Attach failed Could not open network socket
WARNING: DCOP communication problem!
kdeinit: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
ERROR: KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly.
vector:/~
alberto:$

Have you a suggestion? What is the meaning of that message?
Best Regards

This could be a file ownership problem.  If the current user doesn't have ownership and read/write permission of the ".kde" and all the files in it, this could occur.  The ".kde" folder is in /home/[your-user-name].

Try this:  login as root in a terminal (type "su," then your root password).

Then type the following:  chown -hR [your-user-name] .kde - no brackets, just the user name you're logged in as.

Post back and let us know if this helps or not.  I'm confident there's a solution to this problem
