AAARG! KDE not working properly after upgrade!

I just finished downloading a series of updates for MDK 10.1... i did not pay particualr attention to what i was doing, and now KDE is all f#d up. Konqueror will not open, nor will a variety of other KDE apps like K-Wallet. It no longer shows mounted devices, but i can look at them with a shell or a web browser. What can i do?

I had the same problem, and I've been poking around with it. Finally it seems that Konqueror began to work after I went and deleted all the .gnome directories in my home and then went into gnome and ran konqueror from there. I have no idea what could be causing this, is not a normal everyday problem, as the crash log is just a bunch of hex code.

My fix assumes that you have gnome installed and then perhaps that is at the heart of the problem. Let me know what happens, because I'm sure we'll see it again. The best and worst part of linux is its consistency....
