Konsole problem with kde-3.5.3


Hi. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the slack-packages for kde-3.5.3 or with kde itself.

Since upgrading on my laptop to kde-3.5.3 konsole only opens as the root konsole. I cannot use it as a normal user. I've been trying to find out if this was a settings problem but to no avail. Has anyone else experienced this and were you able to solve it?

It only occured on my laptop and so I rolled back to kde-3.5.2, the problem never occured on my desktop.

Thanks for any help,

K

make sure your shortcut is pointing to "konsole" only and not "konsole --type su" which would run it as root....this is assuming you are using a link and not typing konsole in the run command line

no, that's not the problem at all. The link (on the icon) is
Code:
konsole --ls
I don't get why this prob happens with kde-3.5.3 and not with kde-3.5.2

Hi, I'd already tried what you suggested to no avail, so I rolled back to kde-3.5.2. Last night I decided to try it again and upgraded to kde-3.5.3 and lo & behold it works ok, no problems whatsoever. Something odd must have happened the first time I upgraded as I did nothing different the second time around.

Thanks for your suggestions,

K.
