Smile DCOP error

I am also a newbie.

I have gotten an error message to please check that the dcopserver program is running. Where do I look to see if it is running?? I have no clue.

Thanks for your help.

Would help if you put a couple things...
What distro are you using? What exactly are you trying to do? What is the error message?

Without these we can't help you.

Welcome to LQ

The best way to check what processes are running on any Linux system (i.e. this should work no matter what distro you're on) is the ps command.

However, I would suggest that next time you do a web search before asking simple questions like this.

The site I've linked to above is an online version of the Linux man pages, which you can also access locally using the command of the same name.

Another good reference is Rute User's Tutorial And Exposition, which covers a lot.
