View Full Version : [kubuntu] kde 4.2 all applications crash

February 27th, 2009, 02:54 PM
KDE 4.2 on a HP TX2500. Problem began after changing system settings to a different color scheme. Change in desktop appearance took place, but then System Settings crashed.

I could re-start that application, but as soon as I clicked on anything, it would crash. "No valid backtrace" was all the information I could get.

Then this behavior spread to every other kde program. Including the terminal. Fortunately, I was able to re-boot into my gnome desktop. Even here, kde apps, such as Kmail, crash with the same error message.

I don't really know where to go with this. The last bug I reported to KDE, nobody has ever responded to. I'm hoping someone here can suggest an answer.

Well, I must be getting smarter or something, because I solved that problem all by myself!

Uninstalled bespin, and the problem is gone. Be wary of bespin, I guess.
