I am running KDE on Lenny. I cannot open a pdf file with kpdf.
Initially I had blank icons after some sort of finger trouble.
My current symptoms are that clicking on a pdf icon the rather uninformative message "Could not open file:///home/spirals/Desktop/clerks shoes.pdf" pops up.
All problems are confined to one account. The path in the frame, after properties, right click and spanner click is "/home/spirals/.kde/share/applnk/.hidden" which is different from the path shown for another a/c were kpdf works.
Help requested, how to set the path to it's correct value, (so I do not do more damage) and a pointer please Where to I look for an in depth info on how this bit of the KDE desktop files are interlinked. A quick Google brings up too much of info to know where to get fast answers? Thanks for any help.
