Re: still broken, need help: DCOP problem
Typical troubleshooting for dcop involved shutting everything re: kde down,
then blowing away everything kde related in /tmp, mv'ing .kde to .kdeback and
recreating it to see if that helps (if not, just mv it right back), doing a
dpkg --purge on the kdebase & kdelibs debs and reinstalling them, and, well,
if none of that works, then a fill 'dpkg --list | grep -i kde > kdelist' and
then doing a quick shell script to iterate through that and removed/purge
everything and then using the same list to apt-get with. If *that* doesn't
fix it, well then, you're screwed :-) But I'm pretty sure it'll start back
up a few steps before that.....
