KDE: vanished splash screen


Hello everybody!

A few days ago I recognized, that on startup KDE 3 there is no more splash screen. I have any idea what I did to cause that.
Images are in the right places (../apps/ksplash/pics).

Can anybody help me to get my splash screen back?

Thanks.

is ../apps/ksplash/pics == /usr/share/apps/ksplash/pics ?

check the permissions for ksplash, pics, and the images inside pics.

There are two different directories for ksplash pics. One in my home directory (i created that myself for individuel splash screens) and one for the default screens.
I am using SuSE Linux 8.1 so the default directory is /opt/kde/share/apps/ksplash/pics.
I checked your hint: permissions seem alright. r/w for root, r for others and group, directories are x. Owner is root.

you may want to try changing the permissions for everything to 755 and see if that works. i think for everyone, they need at least read and exec access. but you may want to try 777 for the permissions just as a test. as far as individual splashes go, i've tried that with rh 7.3 on kde 3.1.1 and it didn't work for me. oh well...
