Thank you. Actually problem is in kwin. When KDE works good "pgrep
kwin" outputs process IDs of loaded kwins, otherwise 'pgrep kwin'
outputs nothing. After I run "kwin &" command KDE begins to work good
(4 destops and border of the windows appears).
Nevertheless, I want to correct this bug on my machine so that kwin
never dye. Prompt me, please, how to do this.
Must I report this bug? Where?
Enable corefiles by setting the appropriate "ulimit" before entering
KDE; read "man ulimit"; when you enter KDE, perform a "killall kwin" and
then do "kwin &" from within an X-terminal. That should allow messages
from kwin to be displayed on the terminal.
When kwin crashes, it might display a stacktrace on the terminal, and
you can mail both the stacktrace and corefile to the maintainers. The
authors and maintainers for kwin can be found from "apt-get show kwin"
and the file /usr/share/doc/kwin/copyright.
It would be better to post the corefile on your web-site and e-mail a
link to it to the maintainers/developers since corefiles can be big.
I have run "killall kwin" command in "konsole" x-terminal but:
anthony@leva:~$ killall kwin
kwin: no process killed
Then I haven't seen any message from kwin on my terminal (after running
"kwin &" command).
