View Full Version : [SOLVED] Kile dosen't work on Gnome

November 8th, 2007, 08:23 PM
Hi, I have just installed without problems Kile but when I try to run it obtain the following error:

Could not read the network connection list

Please check that the "dcopserver" program is running.

Do I have to move to KDE desktop????

thanks in advance

There should be no problems running Kile under GNOME. I'm sorry, but I don't have any clue why you should get that bug---hope others can help.

You say you "installed without problems".... I take it you did things the normal way via the Ubuntu repositories?

What WebDrake said, there should be no issues with it.

I've used Kile, Rkward, Quanta+ and other KDE apps with e17 extensively.

Using apt to check for unresolved dependencies would be my first step.

Sounds like a permissions or ownership issue for some of your kde system files. Try this

sudo chown -R elisa:elisa /home/elisa

WARNING: I am assuming that your username is elisa. If it is not then substitute the real name for elisa everywhere above....

Maybe installing and running kcontrol helps? I think this creates some KDE-settings.
I am also running Kile right now, without problems. There is a process 'dcopserver [kdeinit] --n' running in the background...

Did you try kleeman's solution?

sudo chown -R $USERNAME:$USERNAME $HOME/.kde

It should suffice.
