cannot start kde anymore
 
Hi,

I cannot start KDE. When I use startx i get the following error :
Quote:

INPUT_METHOD is not set or empty (no user selected input method).
Trying to start a default input method for the locale de_DE.UTF-8 ...
There is no default input method for the current locale.
dbus-daemon: error while loading shared libraries: libxml2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: Permission denied
EOF in dbus-launch reading address from bus daemon

I guess the problem is with the libxml2.. How can I fix this?

Thanks

ok so i once had a problem like this and all i did was switch from typing startx to kdm... what distro are you using

Can you use the command line to create a new user account and log in as that? If so, you can fix the problem by deleting some of the hidden .kde dirs (and losing a lot of customizations in the process. you did make backups I hope)

I'm using Opensuse 10.1 with Kde.

Nothing happened when I type KDM. Not sure of what files I should delete from the .kde directory. It's like kde try to restore my session when it start, can i delete some files to avoid it to that ?
