View Full Version : [kubuntu] KDE doesn't start anymore

September 24th, 2014, 08:51 AM
After last upgrade, KDE is not starting anymore.
I reach the KDE blue logo (with the rotating gear) and then just a black screen with the mouse pointer in the center.
startkde says KDE is already running. And in fact a number of KDE-related processes is running:
kdeinit4, kwin, krunner etc.
From commandline (on VT1) I ran "DISPLAY=:0.0 qdbus" and got a connection refused to /tmp/dbus- Oo97M9Gl6U.
This file/directory/socket doesn't exist at all!!!

I'd need a starting point for troubleshooting as the searches done so far seems to be inconcludent.

Did you try:

export $(dbus-launch)
