I have two computers running the most recent version of -current, an HP desktop & a Toshiba laptop. I am still having this problem
with the desktop, but konsole is working perfectly on it. On the laptop, konsole will not start, but xterm works fine. When I run:
from xterm. I get the following:
$ konsole &
$ QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf", line 9: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated.
unnamed app(2349): Communication problem with "konsole" , it probably crashed.
Error message was: "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply" : " "Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)" "
+ Exit 255 konsole
The first warnings(?) do not appear to be applicable, I get the same thing on the desktop. The Fontconfig warning appears to be the same. It only appeared after I upgraded fontconfig on 03/03/13.
The bolded lines appear to be relevant, but I know nothing about DBus & cannot troubleshoot it. I have reinstalled konsole &, when that didn't work, I redownloaded konsole & installed it again. Neither attempt helped.
Does anyone have any ideas that may help?
