Thanks for the help Bob. I did a couple of things. First I tried the kdeinit command, and it read that kde dcopserver was already running. I still got the same message. So I deleted the /root/.DCOPserver file as kdeinit suggested , same results. It looks like there isn't a problem with dcopserver running, to me it looks like there aren't enough files in the correct areas for dcopserver to communicate with. I looked at some other posts that might relate to this issue, and I noticed that one person suggested doing something, don't quite remember, with the /usr/.kde folder. I don't have that folder. Also what is linux-ppyw, which I find in all of my error messages. maybe that alludes to the problem.
-thanks for the help in advance. Happy Day
