View Full Version : Everything with KDE is somehow corrupt with a white screen and red "X"es

Randomly, KDE started refusing to open programs through the normal menu, giving an error saying something like "KDEInit could not launch /usr/bin/application" (something like that). I thought nothing of it because every once in a while that will happen and logging out or rebooting fixed it. Some hours later, Dolphin stopped working (saying "invalid protocol" in every directory). After that, I decided to log out and back in, but everything was f*cked up! Pressing "Alt+F1" to get me to the console worked, and its working fine there, but KDE is completely broken. I'm on a laptop so I'm using Intel's integrated graphics btw.

Here's a screenshot of my desktop. (http://i49.tinypic.com/j6q104.png) Everything is completely unusable!

Help??

The login manager works fine though, but after the splash screen it does this. Could this be the "white screen of death" I'm reading about? I don't know much about that though.

EDIT: I renamed .kde and logged in again, and it worked (but without all my settings of course). Then I put the original .kde back and it's working again (I can log in and everything), but now a new problem arose. I seem to have the default wallpaper, so I tried right-clicking to change the wallpaper location, but I couldn't right-click. Right-clicking simply does nothing. How do I get this back?? I have access to a backup I made of /home about 10 days ago but that was before I upgraded to 12.10, so I don't know what folder in .kde is the culprit. So now my main problem is getting right-click functionality for plasma-desktop back so I can edit my desktop settings again.

EDIT2: I may have found the specific file that's giving me trouble. It's ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc that might have something wrong with it. The contents of my plasma-desktop-appletsrc is currently this:

Could that be the file that's causing the right-click context menu not to open on the desktop? When I delete (or rename) that file and restart plasma-desktop, it seems to work but it looses all the settings, which I don't want.

OK, I fixed everything. I just had to add this to plasma-desktop-appletsrc:

[ActionPlugins]
MidButton;NoModifier=applauncher
RightButton;NoModifier=contextmenu
I killed and restarted plasma-desktop and it's all working now.

Now does anyone know what caused this in the first place? I haven't edited any configuration files or done any upgrades or anything around that time that I remember that could have caused this...

Corrupt cache, maybe? I have never had this happen myself.

$ rm -rf ~/.kde/cache-${HOSTNAME}/* # caveat emptor, naturally
$ kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental

If it strikes again; get to a terminal. Try enabling debug output, then kill and restart plasma-desktop from there. Maybe kded too.

$ kdebugdialog # untick Disable and hit Select All
$ kquitapp plasma-desktop
$ kquitapp kded
$ kded4
$ plasma-desktop
If no graphical terminal will open (maybe krunner died too), remember that you can just hop to a tty and export DISPLAY=:0 to have programs you run there pop up in your X session (at tty7 or where ever). Screen-likes such as tmux (apt://tmux) and byobu (apt://byobu) are great here.

As for the right-button desktop click thing, I got that once after fiddling about too much with the settings. The graphical way to re-add the context menu functionality is to click the cashew, pick Desktop Settings, then Mouse Actions.
