k3bsetup in slackware current


Hi all

Running k3bsetup results in the following
Quote:
kbuildsyscoca running...
kcmshell (kdelibs): WARNING: could not find module 'k3bsetup2'.
Trying a locate for k3bsetup2 finds
Quote:
/usr/lib/kde3/kcm_k3bsetup2.la
/usr/lib/kde3/kcm_k3bsetup2.so
Any ideas.

Try logging in as root and running k3bsetup. k3bsetup must be ran as root the very first time, after that you can run it as a normal user and give the root password.

Sorry this doesn't work. I thought that I had tried that combination already, and I guess I had.

k3bsetup2 doesn't exist, the libraries are there, but no executable.

Hmmm it works here on a clean slackware current install, try running ldconfig and or try reinstalling it. The executable is k3bsetup

I have what appears to be the same problem on my Slackware -current setup, I just have been too busy with getting the rest of the system running properly to actually look into it yet.

EDIT

I got it working now. Seems you need to have the kdebase package installed, were I only ever needed kdelibs installed on Slackware 11 and earlier to get K3B happy.

Hi

I now have everything installed except e/ f/ k/ y/ and I reinstalled k3b and k3b-i18n.

Still no joy k3bsetup cannot find the module k3bsetup2

EDIT
It appears that k3bsetup2 is supposed to be a module of kcontrol, but re-installing kdebase and kdelibs does not correct the error.

Any further ideas

Samac

KDE k3b KSycoca error solving

I’ve emerged k3b in my gentoo to be able to write cds from X windows. When trying to fire up k3bsetup I got these strange messages:

root # k3bsetup
_IceTransOpen: Unable to Parse address
Session management error: Could not open network socket
kio (KSycoca): WARNING: Found version 75, expecting version 78 or higher.
kio (KSycoca): WARNING: Outdated database found
kio (KSycoca): ERROR: No database available!
kio (KSycoca): ERROR: No database available!
kio (KSycoca): ERROR: No database available!
kio (KSycoca): ERROR: No database available!
kcmshell (kdelibs): WARNING: Could not find module ‘k3bsetup2′.

I don’t understand what this is. BUT I’ve found a solution to it.
Inside /var/tmp/kdecache-root/ there were 2 files named:

ksycoca ksycocastamp

as soon as you rm them and run k3bsetup again…everything is fine.

It just works…I don’t know what ksycoca is but I’m glad this “solution” works.
This fix worked, I wonder why it went wrong in the first place.

I had a similar problem (with Slackware 11, k3b 1.0), and was able to solve it by adding /opt/kde/bin to the root path which is not included by default. As root:

Quote:
bash-3.2# echo "export PATH=$PATH:/opt/kde/bin" >> /root/.profile

KDE has been moved out of /opt in Slackware -current, and therefore all future versions of Slackware as well. It is now inside of the /usr directory, like the rest of the applications (I.E. /usr/bin/k3b).

Forcing the system to rebuild these files fixes k3bsetup on my -current.

Thanks samac
