KDE: Inter-process authentication problems
I'm having trouble with inter-process authentication in KDE 3.4 on Kanotix (although I've seen it on other distros, too).
Here are the symptoms:
- Sometimes (no rhyme or reason) when I kdesu, I receive an error saying, "Unable to enable inter-process communications for KDE. Authentication Rejected, reason: Non of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed."
- I am unable to access "Administrator Mode" in any of the kcontrol modules
- When I run Konqueror in root-mode in my user account, I stumble across errors and problems starting processes. For instance, I *sometimes* cannot type "media:/" in the location bar, because the media service is not running. But it works find in my user account (and it worked fine just now in a root-mode konqueror, as I tried to get the error message syntax).
I've tried deleting the .ICEauthority file in my user account, but this did no good. Any other ideas?
