    Login Problem


    Well, yesterday I tried to add another user. It didn't work so I deleted it. While doing that I accidently deleted my only other account. My directory in /home is still there. Anyways, I made my account again(same name and everything), but now when I try to login, I get an error about dcopserver not being running. So I log into root, open up konsole, i become the account im having problems with and type in dcopserver. It says its running fine. So I logout, then try to log back in as brian, again, it does not work, same problem. I do the process all over again, same thing. Anyone have any ideas?

    Edit:

    Oh yeah, here's the actuall error I get when trying to login.

    There was an error settuping up inter-process communications for KDE.
    The message returned by the system was:

    Could not read Network Connection List.
    //: .DCOPserver_192.168.0.1__0

    Please check that DCOPserver program is running.

    Maybe that can help you out.

    so then it's not an issue? it's just that you want KDE to shutup about it?

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention a big factor. Because of this error, it won't let me login.

    Re: Login Problem

    Try

    delete all /tmp stuff
    from your home
    delete ~/.ICEauthority*
    delete ~/.DCOPServer_*

    These files are recreated in next KDE login

    maybe this error can be cause by a not clean reboot.

    Hope it help

    Just to finish off this thread... I had a similar problem and the proposed solution here did work. I am running Mandrake 10.1 Official (download) with kernel 2.6.8.12-mdk, running on a PIII-600MHz. I was forced to forcibly reboot my machine, and when it loaded back into KDE I got this message:


    There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE.
    The message returned by the system was:

    Could not read Network Connection List.
    /home/bob/.DCOPserver_localhost__0

    Please check that "dcopserver" program is running.


    This was fixed by removing the .ICE* and .DCO* files and rebooting:

    $ whoami
    bob
    $ cd /home/bob
    $ rm .ICEauthority*
    $ rm .DCOPServer*
    $ su
    # reboot

    The deleted files are re-created by KDE upon rebooting and everything runs fine thereafter.
