Exclamation 2x Trash after KDE 3.4upgrade?


Hi All,

I updated to KDE 3.4 and when I restarted X, I had two trash icons. I tried to trash one and recieved the folowing error,

"Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:
klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'trash' ...."

So, I have two trash cans but neither work .....

Any help thanks!

Mick

PS: Have migrated to Debian (less than 12 hours ago) from Fedora Core 3. So I'm sure this will be far from the only post you'll see from me. I will help out where I can, but I'm afraid I won't be able to contribute as much as I would like to for sometime (unless you have Fedora question...)

Thanks for the heads up Heema,

You were right about kdebase-kio-plugins, but I can't install it because it depends on

dbus-qt-1

Which it then tells me, is not installable!

I Apt-get removed all KDE refrences from my installation and changed my sources.list to the KDE 3.4.1 list (I originally downloaded from KDE 3.4.0). I was hoping that 3.4.1 would fix this problem.

I even downloaded an dpkg'ed the correct dbus-qt-1 version as required and installed it, but Debian Apt does not acknowledge it's exsistance.

Sorry it took so long to reply, I'm on dial up and have spent a fair bit o time downloading 3.4.1....

Any help with dbus-qt-1 would be appreciated, although googling hasn't produced any results with this one.

Regards


Mick

OHHH MAN!

This is my Second foray into Debain in three years and I'm spending more time on my Wife's Fedora 4 machine..... I know... I'll never learn that way!

Who'd have thought two linux distros could be so different!

Still I'm determined to learn (because I'm the first to admit that RPM based distros do it all for you, and you don't have to know what's going on.... I want to KNOW!)

I had a linux GURU come to my house and after 6 hours he managed to get everything set up (Cedega, ccd2iso, etc, etc) beautifully..... at about quarter to two in the morning he toasted my KDE installation (I mean, Elvis has left the building toasted). At least that solved the two trash can problem).

After badeing him good night, it was between going Fedora or trying to fix Debian myself. I vi'ed my apt-sources list and switched to unstable. So, I'm replying now because it's finally finished downloading all it's updates and stuff. KDE is back, but it has broken Protocols.

When I try to launch devices I recieve the error message "protocol not supported".

So Trash is good, Devices are TRASH!

Sorry about the long post, I really can't do much when downloading.

PS, I did install the correct dbus package and it didn't work (previous post) maybe the problem lay at a deeper level?

Regards

Mick

I had the same problem. Apparently the devices protocol no longer exists in kde 3.4, but somehow they left the icon there. What I did was change it to the media protocol, which is basically the same thing (maybe the kde devs changed the name). To do that go to $HOME/.kde/share/apps/konqsidebartng/virtual_folders/ and change the file devices.desktop

Okay

This is all that's listed under , ~/.kde/share/apps/konqsidebartng/virtual_folders$
. .. remote services

Under services ....

applications.desktop .directory media.desktop settings.desktop
.. audiocd.desktop fonts.desktop printsystem.desktop

I had a look under settings and applications, the kdesidebar is mentioned in both but not specifically "devices".

regards

mick
