I'm using PCLinuxOS 2010 with kde4.5. Yesterday I installed kalarm using Synaptic. There were numerous updates required so I hesitated to do it but installed kalarm and tested it successfully. I have a list of the updates if that would be helpful. Today when I booted I saw the above error on the Desktop. No Desktop icons were shown. When I open Dolphin or Konqueror file managers no directories or files show and the above error is at the bottom of the window. The same error appears for all users. Logged in to GUI as root to test and had the same error.

All icons are available in the panel at the bottom of the Desktop and I can do pretty much anything except access files through the file managers.

Did some googling for the error and found this site:

http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f...ile%27#p169421

Checked and found that I did have the files:
/usr/lib/kde4/kio_file.so and /usr/share/kde4/services/file.protocol.

Tried the command suggested: kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental
This is the output:

I found a post here at LQ with a similar error where it was suggested running kdeinit4 in a terminal which I tried. Got the last error from the above output. Not sure where to go from here. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

After having tried a number of possible solutions that failed, I found a site suggesting a complete upgrade. I had backups of all data I wanted so I opened Synaptic, clicked Mark All Upgrades, Apply and let it run. When it was finished, everything was working. It did update a lot of programs that I didn't necessarily want but that's insignificant.
