kde system guard


After I type ksysguard in a terminal on suse 10 enterprise I don't get to the lizard head as I think I should. Other than a terminal I don't seem to be able to get to the system guard area.
Thanks beforehand if someone helps me,
Shelby (Orange County, CA)

Try typing the full path or calling the man page.

Code:
locate sysguard |grep bin
Where you see ksysguard and bin together- usually in a /usr subdirectory, that will be the path.
Etc /usr/bin/ksysguard

Open the khelp center and type in sysguard or ksysguard

Hi Mr Bisquit,
Unfortunately your command Etc /usr/bin/ksysguard causes me to get the bash reply: command not found.
Also when I type the command: locate sysguard |grep bin I get the same reply: command not found.
This past semester I found similar problems when the suse 9 study guide frequently didn't give the results that it was supposed to. I'm using the suse 10 enterprise as our instructor had us use.
Thanks again for you suggestions ,

You'll probably have to initialize "locate", since it needs a database which it periodically actualizes.
Code:
man updatedb
man locate
man slocate {in case it is installed...}

In a terminal, type ks
Now press the <TAB> key twice.
The shell will list all commands starting with the letters ks

Is ksysguard listed?

If not, you need to install it.

Understanding

Thanks Tredegar,
At least I have a better understanding of how to find if I have something and what commands I might have as well.

OK. That means it is installed.

So, tell us exactly what happens when you type ksysguard and then press the return key ?

Error

I had a few mins after all. It says KSycoca running and then the list comes up with
kio (KSycoca):ERROR: No database available!
that line repeats about 28 times or so; then my prompt.
Thanks again,
Shelbin

Well, something is broken.

You could try:
Log out of KDE (so you are back at the graphical login screen)
Then press <CTRL><ALT><F1> to get a text terminal.
Login as yourself.
Give the commands
Code:
mv  .kde  .kde_backup
exit
Press <CTRL><ALT><F7>
Login
You will have lost your default settings.
Try ksysguard again
Any better?

To set things back as they were before:
Log out of KDE (so you are back at the graphical login screen)
Then press <CTRL><ALT><F1> to get a text terminal.
Login as yourself.
Give the commands
Code:
rm .kde
mv  .kde_backup  .kde
exit
Press <CTRL><ALT><F7>
Login

If this doesn't work, perhaps it is time for an upgrade, I believe Suse is up to version 11.2 now:

Horrible then normal

Thanks again Tred,
When I tried your last postings I ended up without being able to get back to my desktop or a terminal, etc. Fortunately after work last night when I rebooted my computer I seemed to be back to normal and I even started getting some prompting from a ksysguard window that comes up when I type ksysguard - in my terminal.
You've been kind to help me,
Thanks again,
Shelby Orange County, CA
