kdebase is completely installed. However the date/time module doesn't
work either (nor does kfontinst)
I tried to run the kcmshell-thing from commandline:
kdesu -- kcmshell kfontinst --lang de which gave me an error message
box not beeing able to communicate to a dcopserver (and I find that a
dcopserver is exiting under root-id after that). I'm sorry I don't
have the exact message, but I retried to get it in english, but the
second time nothing happend after I was asked for the password. But
now kcmshell kdm works! But in kcontrol it doesn't and after trying it
in kcontrol again, running the kcmshell kdm from commandline doesn't
work and give me the message box again. So here's the translation of
There has been a problem configuring communication between kde
processes. The system message is:
Authentication Rejected, reason: None of the authentication protocols
specified are supported and host-based authentication failed
Please make sure that the dcopserver program is running!
But the password is correct.
