Are you running Ubuntu or Kubuntu? kfmclient seems to the a KDE/Konqueror thing.

I suspect you can deal with this without reinstalling the entire system, but we need a little more information about your setup.

Shot in the dark: Run Synaptic and check whether it reports an broken packages in the status line at the bottom of the Synaptic window.
