I'm having a small issue with kmail but it's getting annoying.
I don't run KDE, I use gdm as a login manager, and an awesome session. When I log on, I start kmail, and it has started to fail systematically a few weeks ago. The following is displayed in the terminal:
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/libkdeinit4_klauncher.so
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/libkdeinit4_kded4.so
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/libkdeinit4_kbuildsycoca4.so
kbuildsycoca4(18377) KBuildSycoca::checkDirTimestamps: timestamp changed: "/etc/xdg/menus/debian-menu.menu"
<unknown program name>(18365)/: Communication problem with "kmail" , it probably crashed.
Error message was: "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply" : " "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." "
I have to relaunch kmail to get a window. On the second launch, I get the following messages:
alf@lacapelle:~$ kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/kde4/kio_imap4.so
<unknown program name>(18502)/ kdemain: IMAP4::kdemain
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/kde4/kio_imap4.so
<unknown program name>(18503)/ kdemain: IMAP4::kdemain
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/kde4/kio_file.so
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/bin/knotify4
A possible cause for this could be a timeout set to someting too small, which
could go unnoticed for people using KDE because they already have a number of
KDE-related processes running. Since I'm not using that environment, launching
these extra processes takes some extra time and causes the timeout to occur.
I'll be happy to help reproduce and fix this.
Thanks for your time.
