http://developer.kde.org/documentati...arch/dcop.html

However, I wouldn't say DCOP doesn't have to be running unless you are running a server (in the sense of http server or something) but rather if you are running X with KDE programs. I am under the impression (and I think that link backs it up a bit) that KDE uses the DCOP server to speak to other KDE programs, so it's kind of rough to run a KDE program without running DCOP...

In other words, probably something you don't need to worry about young jedi

Cool

Indeed, DCOP will be started automatically if it's not running when needed.

ok, try this one...

startx under user gives me the following error...

"There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE.

The Message returned by the system was:

Could not read network connection list /home/loran/.dcopserver_darkstar_o.

Please check that dcopserver program is running."

Well, got any suggestions? startx works fine under root, though.

Check the permissions on that file, possibly delete it

nope, didn't work. There is no file ny that name in the directory. Could have something to so with permissions in the $Home directory? (I think thats what the error message said).

just for the record, I'm having the same problem if I try to log into linux using kdm (kde display manager). If I try using xdm it works without that error message, even though I still load and use KDE...

Seems like nobody got the answer to this, so I'll add my $0.02. I had the same problem and I solved it by deleting the user account I created during the installation with userdel -r <user> and recreating it with useradd -m <user>. Apparently, it was not created properly during the install and was using / as the default directory. That's why dcop gave permission errors when trying to store config settings.
