Permission run konqueror as root in KDE


Dear Linux-friends,

Normally i can run konqueror as root in KDE. But now it fails. Even if i try to run it trough the Terminal (Redhat 9.0 / kernel 2.4.20-20-9)

The terminal gives:
“mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
/tmp/mcop-tika is not owned by user”

Does anybody knows a solution?

Greeting
Marcel

1) Quick and (very) dirty workaround.

From the terminal, su to root, then:

chown - marcel /tmp/mcop-tika

then try running konquerer as root.

2) Or, more responsibly, you could have a look at mcop-tika to find out what it is. If you can normally run Konquerer as root, it's usually something you've changed, or a leftover temp file from another process.

The files shown in de tmp/mcop-tika dir are:
an empty “artsd-samples; 6 Arts-.. txt-files; a socket for my cable internet connection and a txt-file named secret-cookie”
Everything is routed through the user. Is there a file in here that doesn't belong there?

Greeting
Marcel

In an other forum i encountered the following suggestion:

"mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
/tmp/mcop-tika is not owned by user"

# ssh -X -l root localhost
The authenticity of host 'localhost (127.0.0.1)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is ********
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?"

I wonder if this fixes my problem? But i don't dare to try it. Does anybody know if this could fix the problem or make it worse?

Greetings
Marcel

were you able to make this work by ?

chown -marcel /tmp/mcop-tika

I am currently experiencing the same thing. It appeared to start hapenning after I messed around with the soundserver.

also did you find out what this does?

# ssh -X -l root localhost
The authenticity of host 'localhost (127.0.0.1)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is ********
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?"

your help is greatly appreciated

No rjwright i still can't operate konqueror as root > i.e. the File Manager the way it should. Tried all the things, but don't want to head into rigorous measurer's.

I finally got it to work by renaming the /tmp/mcop-* directory but then other things started happening so I named it back and it crashed out my X session, I rebooted and things were still weird so I deleted the directory all together and then it magically re appeared, things are working ok now but I still can't run konqueror as root, sigh
