It would help if you explained more about how your Internet connection is set up:

Is a modem connected to this machine, or do you use another machine on the LAN as a gateway? What kind of modem is it, and what protocol does it use to connect? What kind of connection is this (dial-up, cable, (A)DSL, IDSN, satellite, wireless)?

Do you have a firewall running? (Is port 80 possibly blocked by the firewall)?

Are you running (or do you need to run) a proxy server?

Did you in fact check that dcopserver is running (since no matter what the situation here is, apparently KDE thinks it needs it)?

Have you tried this under another WM/DE such as IceWM, Xfce, GNOME or any other WM you might have installed, as the error you quoted appears to be particular to KDE?

internet works

Ok, it seems like I got the Internet to work for now. What I did is, I changed the Install ipv6, and then I went on my router, and I added port 80 to my firewall list, so it wouldn't block it. It works for now, but I don't know for how long.

And the other problem. I checked if DCOPserver is running, and I got this:

Code:
It looks like dcopserver is alrady running.  If you are sure that
 it is not already running, remove /root/.DCOPserver_linux__0 
and start dcopserver again
I hope someone could help me, thanks a lot and see ya all later

Well, DCOPserver is part of kdeinit. So, not knowing if it's running correctly or not, most likely the easiest way to stop and start it would be to log out of KDE and back in (this should not disrupt your network connection).

If the server won't start properly, then delete the file listed... in root's home directory.... oh, no, wait just a minute.

Are you running your computer normally as root??? With a DE, no less???

This is very unwise and extremely insecure. Please, when you log out, log back in as a normal user, and learn the usage of the su command, which allows you to run any command on the system with root privileges.

yes

But I cannot log in as a normal user, cuz then I get that error, thats why i posted it here. Everytime I make a new user, I cannot log onto it, because i get that error... so is there some other way ?

is there some other way to make a new user, than useradd?

Code:
There was an error setting up inter-process
Communications for KDE.  The message returned
by the system was:
//. DCOPserver_linux_0
Please check that "dcopserver" is running!
And then another window that says this:

Code:
Will not save configuration.
Configuration file "//.Kde/share/config/ksplashrc" not writable.
Configuration file "//.Kde/share/config/kdeglobals" not writable.

Please contact your system administrator!
Please help, I do not want to log on as a roo all the time. Thank You.
