cookies not working in kde...


Hello, I am posting this from lynx because it seems to be the only browser I have that supports cookies right now. I thought it was just a kde (konq) problem but mozilla and dillo aren't working either.

I was trying to sign into LQ and I logged in fine but as soon as I changed to a new page I was signed out again, so I can't post or do anything but read. I made sure that my cookies are on in konq but I got this usefull message:

"This control module cannot start the cookie server process, it will be impossible to manage cookies."

OK, so I deleted all my old cookies...restarted kde, no joy. I am at a loss for what to do. I know this is kind of a vague question, but does anyone have any idea what might be up? Keep in mind that cookies didn't work for mozilla or dillo either.

It's not my firewall though...because they are working fine in lynx.

Any suggestions are appreciated

I've had that problem with vB forums before. Do you remember changing an option in your Control Panel which read:
Quote:
Automatically login when you return to the site? (uses cookies)
or
Quote:
Browse board with cookies?
Clicking yes will use cookies to keep your id for this session. Clicking no will send it through the links. (Selecting no may cause problems when sharing links with people behind the same proxy as you)
?

No, it definately wasn't a problem with the board settings (remember lynx accepted cookies just fine...)

The point is moot however as Arch linux released the final release canidate for their new version so I had to download it, burn it, and install it. Works great, and the cookies work too.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...man I love Linux

Thanks for the help.

D'oh, I somehow missed the bits about Lynx working
So was it a previous Arch upgrade that broke it? Or something to do with the LQ server and which browser you used?

No it wasn't an upgrade. I don't have a clue what it was...the only thing I can think of is that I like to poke around in my ~/.kde/ directory and play with things, I probably pooched something in there. I think that kcookiejar handles those things, so I may have fuddled a setting.

I always use kde...and it seemed that all my X browsers stopped working...so I blame kde (and myself of course)

Even though I am tempted to say "I didn't do anything...it just stopped working" we all know that is rarely true.

Well I'm back because it's happening again...the same error message and session cookies will not work.

It seems to happen randomly, and I have to re-login to fix it...very annoying.

If anyone has seen this or knows what it is I could use some help. Is it a kde bug maybe?

Cookies are timing out maybe, or being periodically flushed by your browser?

It would seem like they are not being stored at all...

It isn't happening right now, but what happens is I have to login to LQ manually, but as soon as I change pages it logs me out instantly, that is, it doesn't log me out (ie: "thanks for logging out, bulliver", it just forgets me.

Have you altered your browser's options for using JS and cookies?

nope.

I really do think this is bigger than just a browser issue. I think it's a bug in kde.

No one has ever seen this??:

"This control module cannot start the cookie server process, it will be impossible to manage cookies."

Hmm, if this only happens in X/KDE, I think you maybe turned on that KCookieJar deamon and it's interrupting all cookie actions, but it isnt running when out of X, so that's why Lynx works.
Which version of KDE do you have?

I am using kde 3.1.3

Would kcookiejar interfere with cookies in Mozilla though? At this point it is more of an annoyance than a problem, so perhaps I will just rough it out till the next update.

Brain storm: I'm gonna go search the kde mailing list archives for "cookie module"

I dunno if the kcookiejar deamon would interfere, but you say the problem is only in X so it's either some difference between runlevels (if you arent just using startx), or it's the processes and deamons running in KDE. Are you running Mozilla via that soundwrapper thing?

I always boot into runlevel 3, and startx manually. Not sure what soundwrapper is?

I'm crossing my fingers, but it hasn't pooched in a couple of days now. When it does happen I have to logout then log back in, so it's not too bad. I am really thinking that it is a bug in kde. With the distro I use I recieve my updates from the 'current' repository, rather than the 'stable' one, so perhaps this is just the price you have to pay for being cutting edge

My menu entries for Mozilla have the command soundwrapper /usr/bin/mozilla, and the contents of /usr/bin/soundwrapper are:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

if [ `/sbin/pidof -s artsd` ] ; then
	artsdsp "$@"
else
	if [ `/sbin/pidof -s esd` ]; then
		esddsp "$@"
	else
		"$@"
	fi
fi
So I'm wondering if starting your browser triggers starting sound deamons and services (artsd/esd) which could at the same time trigger other kde deamons and services (kcookiejard)... which is already sounding like a bug to me too
