Konqueror crashes, SuseWatcher crashes!!!


Why does my Konqueror crash so badly? Also, when my computer loads kde, the first thing that happens is a SuseWatcher crash. It leaves my without some functions, such as mounted partitions icons.
When I hit browse button to load some picture to the background, at the control module, Koqueror inevitably crashes. Using the "Find File" utility at it, crashes too.
What is it?

Well you haven't really explained your problem specifically enough to say for sure.

I can tell you this tho. SuSE Watcher is just a pain in the ass. It doesn't crash on me and shouldn't for you, but disabling it will remove any hardware icons fron the desk top. But the good news is that all you have to do is remake the icons by right-clicking on the desktop and slecting create new - hard disc...

If you can Get KDE running, double click the green SuSE Watcher icon in the system tray. A dialogue box will pop up asking if you want to start the service. Click yes. Another dialogue box will pop up. Uncheck both boxes regarding starting SuSE watcher when KDE starts and checking for updates. Close SuSE watcher. Right-click on the green system tray icon and quit SuSE Watcher. You will never see SuSE Watcher again

If SuSE Watcher was your problem this should help. I doubt that it is tho. When you make the new disc icons, they will be permanent - untill you choose to delete them of course.

HTH

Ok, here you go, more detailed info about the issues:
When opening Konqueror and choosing "Find File", from the tools menu, it crashes. I receive signal 11, and a bunch of lines that some call "backtrace".
If I right click the desktop and choose "Configure desktop" > Background > wallpaper > browse, it crashes.
Things were doing fine, until I tried to edit the desktop icon for konqueror. I was trying to make it open as detailed view as default. Suse didn't let me save changes, telling me that I had not enough permissions. For some reason, I could change the bar desktop icon, but not the workspace icon. After all that mess, things started to crash: konqueror and susewatcher.
Yes, I get signal 11 for both. Does it mean that I'm doomed?

Not doomed. (yet) remember, this is linux. First test the general install by creating a test user and see if things work ok there. If all is OK, then the problem is with your personal settings and not KDE or the install. KDE can be flaky. I remember my KDE freezing solid because I had the translucent marble icon theme and tried to resize the icons in my konqueror view to a size that did not exist in the icon theme. That took me 2 days to figure out.

Tested as root, and I could change desktop background flawlessly. Also, the susewatcher green icon appears. When logging as normal user "bruno", it doesn't. The "Find File" option is ok, too. The problem is with my personal settings. Am I closer to the fix?

Yes, but I would still create a "bruno2" or "test" user and see if there are problems there. Once things are fixed you can always delete the user later. root is different from normal users and might work even if there is something hosed.

OK try this.

Open kongueror (by clicking your home icon)
Click settings - configure view profiles
Select filemanagement
If the "delete profile" button is not greyed out click it. This will reset the file management profile to default.

See if this clears up the problem.

Hi, Franklin!
Thanks, man, for your help!
I created a test user and it did fine. So, I deleted bruno. Then I re-created bruno and now things are doing fine.
Just kinda akward, because I have to reconfigure everything again.

Well, it would have been better to figure what you did so you didn't do it again (or if you did you could fix it)

Always remember, reinstalling is the windows way. Linux can usually be fixed. Only root can hose you.

Glad I could help.
