Re: Critical programs fail to launch
Snappy, snappy, muchas gracias senior Lisandro.
This is what happened, in a dist-upgrade I saw that package ifupdown was
being held back and not upgraded.
Tried to force upgrade but it wanted to remove half the system, so I passed.
Then I saw that there is another package in repo called ifupdown2, so I
installed that one, which removed ifupdown.
That is when the sluggishness started.
So I dist-upgraded today, purged ifupdown2, installed ifupdown without
problems, rebooted, and lo (pun intended) and behold, kde was back!

I don't see any 'lo'.
However, /etc/network/interfaces seems to be OK:

# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback

Programs okular, k3b, korganizer, fail to launch, there may be others

While making a full backup, Clonezilla could not verify the

If you have multiple bugs like this it sounds more a problem in your
(either hardware or software) than an app's fault. I'm pretty sure
I have tested hard drive extensively with smartmontools, no errors.
I have submitted bugs for all these, no response yet.
all invalid ones.
Above mentioned programs do launch eventually, after several minutes,
and throw errors.
This along says a lot. Please take a look at
If you happen to fins the cause of your problem please close all the
