"Could not start process - Can't talk to Klauncher" ??
I am a first timer. I have had to reinstall a few times as part of my learning curve. I just finished a complete (4th) reinstall of Mandrake 9.2. On my last try I was trying to configure My DSL and I think I screwed with network settings that I shouldn't have and I was stuck at a command line. I posted some threads, nothing worked, so I reinstalled.
I just finished install and setup. I got the DSL working and I was browsing with Konquerer. I closed it, went to tinker with desktop settings and open some programs, but I never got a chance to. When I try to open ANYTHING, it either does absolutely nothing or I get "Could not start process - Can't talk to Klauncher?" I coudn't even correct the clock, it would act like it was about to open some sort of window, then I would get "This program has exited abnormally"
I know I'm a noob, but I didn't get the chance to mess anything up this time. I'm considering a quick reboot, but I had this same issue last time and when I rebooted I was stuck at a command line.
And if I do the reboot, it shoud be simply, logout -> restart and that should bring me right back to the desktop not a command line. There isn't a secret Linux step to reboot back to the desktop right?
Any advice would be extremely appreciated.
Thank you in advance . . .
