no icons on kde 3.4.2 desktop after reboot
I wonder if anyone has seen this problem and knows how to solve it.
After a reboot, my KDE desktop shows no icons and a pop-up window shows
Error - KDesktop
The process for the file protocol died unexpectedly
If I end the session and log in again, the icons appear.
I'm running KDE 3.4.2 on an up-to-date debian sid machine (kernel
2.6.12-1-686). I use kdm and configured it to auto-login with my userid.
I didn't know what was the "file protocol" (from the error msg) and
kdesktop "file protocol"
kde "no icons"
but didn't hit anything that seemed relevant to this problem. The full
error msg had no google hits at all.
I disabled auto-login, rebooted the machine, logged in manually, but hit
exactly the same problem.
The impression I have is that whatever process sets up the icons on the
desktop requires a process which is only started later, so that, when I
end the session and log in again, it's then there, available.
I wasn't sure if I should post this on the kde list. I'll accept any
Thanks for taking the time to read
