    A good general rule for things that give errors is to use Synaptic to re-install them. It has worked in the past for other errors from other programs.


    If any other people have this problem, and the above solutions do not work for you, then start your own thread! I am very sure more people will help you that way. I would hate for someone not to be able to solve a problem, because they are asking for help on a solved thread.

    best of luck!

    Deleting .kde did the job for me!

    I had to add the recursive option (-R) to the chown command to get it to work, but: it works! Thanks

    Thank you all, I also fixed it by removing the .kde folder from the home folder. I was having this problem on asus eee 4g (Xandros).

    Removing the .kde folder from my home folder seemed to do the trick.

    (I had used the chown command suggested without luck before trying this)

    Do other programs use this directory to store information? Basically I'm asking if this fix could potentially break other stuff.

    Thanks,

    Hey guys. This is my first time on the forum, and working w/ Linux - please bare with me

    I'm trying to sync up an iPod nano (5th gen) to an Asus Eee PC running Ubuntu. I've been checking the forums and am not able to find out how to get the command line to appear so I can try some of the ideas below.

    The error says:
    There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. The message returned by the system was:
    Could not read network connection list.
    /home/user/.DCOPserver_asus-805599479__0
    Please check that the "dcopserver" program is running!

    I am not able to find those files to try and delete them.

    What can I do? Thanks for your help everyone!

    I ran around in circles looking for what was wrong - turned out I had no space left on my /home partition

    Check you have enough disk space if you don't have any luck with the suggested solutions.

    As far as getting k3b to run on karmic. I had to start nautilus from root using sudo then change the permissions of all the folders, subfolders and files in the .kde file located at /home/<username>/.kde
    After I did that k3b ran perfectly from the icon, where as before I had to open a console and run it as root.
