Unhappy quanta doesn't start


[dmitry@localhost dmitry]$ quanta
QGDict::hashKeyString: Invalid null key

Quanta doesn't start. What the above mean and how do you deal with it?

Thanks. I will try. I hope I remember the command: "urpme -quanta.... ", "urpm -Uvh quanta" or something like that?

Well, I got 2 questions:

1. does quanta have to be uninstalled first?
2. shall its installation be overwritten if i reinstall it without uninstalling?

Thanks for your advice.

Hmm.. I can't afford to do not what I know, can you?

Actually I found out what to do, using rpm --help.

However, I still have a problem. For what hell reason it runs only as a root, giving the same message in the shell:

QGDict::hashKeyString: Invalid null key.
