View Full Version : [SOLVED] [Kubuntu] sudo plasma-desktop brought me "system problem detected" error (I think)

I run kde on top of ubuntu studio. The other day in a misguided attemt to run plasma-desktop, I ran it as sudo. This has caused an error on launch of xfce and kde sessions. I can reproduce the error by running

sudo apt-get install --reinstall upstart

I get a "sytem problem detected" prompt.
I'm not sure where to go with troubleshooting from here. I suspect a permissions issue as it's present over multiple desktop environments.

That was weird. I ran the above command a few more times to test, and now the problem appears to be corrected.

I'm wondering if I've broken anything else by running sudo plasma-desktop. Any thoughts folks?
