    Program starts then closes after 1 second

    Program starts then closes after 1 second

    It happened before but with programs I didn't really need. I ignored it.
    Sometimes also the desktop icons stop functionning, but lauching the program via the "Start/Application/Whatever" functions.

    Now it's Konqueror. I'm trying to set up a server so I really want Konqueror, it's both a browser and a file manager. I like drag-and-drop much better than typing ssh commands.

    It starts when launched from "Start/Application/Internet". I see the opened windows icons on the bottom (Kubuntu) moving aside to make room for a new icon. Then these icon move back in place and that's it.

    Lauching via the command line simply returns. No error message. Even if I type "konqueror --silent" (open without opening any default web page).

    I tried
    apt remove konqueror
    then
    apt install konqueror

    I tried
    sudo apt --reinstall install konqueror

    I tried closing off a few opened windows (I tend to leave many windows simply downsized).

    No changes.

    It used to run fine, the only thing that changed, AFAIK, was that I did an update/upgrade

    Is there a way to force this program to run?
    Or at least a way to launch it via the command line in a kind of debbug mode, so that I would at least see an error message?

    All suggestions welcome.

    Functioning again, but only when launched via the command line.
    What did I do to fix it? Nothing more than previously stated.

    I would still like to know an explanation and a fix, please.

    you might want to watch the journal when trying to open normally it might point to some app armour issue

    Code:
    journalctl -ef

    This ^^^ and it can also point out other errors.
    The point is nobody can troubleshoot such a problem without checking what's happening.

    So I suspect you have a pretty messed up system.
    Uninstalling and reinstalling software to solve such things is a "Windows mentality" thing.
