In order to change permissions I fired up a terminal (consol?) as root "su".

When I first booted up and had the problem, I selected user "kurt" to log into KDE with.

Problem solved... here's what I did:

QUOTE
No Write Access to '/home/kurt/.ICEauthority
KDE is unable to start"


I got thinking about this so I found the file .ICEauthority and looked at it's "permissions". It had "rw- --- ---". I changed it to "rw- rw- rw-", rebooted, and the problem went away!

I'm not sure if what I did has any unknown consequences or not.

All I do know is that I can run the KDE desktop again, and when I fire up
Konqueror I no longer get the error message:

""DCOP communications error (Konqueror)
There was an error setting up inter-process comminications for KDE."

Now to figure out my 'sound' problem...

Tonight when I booted up Mandrake 10.0 Official & tried to log into KDE 3.2 I received the following error message:

"The following installation problem was detected while trying to start KDE:
No Write Access to '/home/kurt/.ICEauthority
KDE is unable to start"


so I clicked "O.K." and another message box poped up:

"cound not start ksmserver. check your installation"

I clicked "OK" which brought me back to where I choose what WM I want to use. I selected Fluxbox this time. I was able to fire up Fluxbox O.K. , but when I started up Konqueror I received the following error message:

"DCOP communications error (Konqueror)
There was an error setting up inter-process comminications for KDE. The message returned by the system was: Could not read network connection list
/home/kurt/.DCOPserver_my_isp_address_&_provider.
Please check that the "dcopserver" program is running!


so I clicked O.K., Konqueror fired up, I got the same error message again, clicked O.K. and was able to then use Konqueror without issue.

Whats up with my system?????
(and tonight I thought I'd tackle my "no sound" problem... wrong!)

and login as root, then

shutdown -r -y 0

And the computer will shoutdown and reboot....


After I entered Ctrl-Alt-F2 and logged in as su I forgot the above command (when will I ever learn) so I fell back to my old ways and keyed Ctrl-Alt-Delete. The system rebooted and my 'editing work' in Flux box was saved!

Thanks... this Forum is great and your the best!!

I've been hacking around in the Fluxbox menu file tweaking it to my liking.
I made an error which removed the commands to exit or restart or shutdown Fluxbox.
I've corrected my editing error (i think!) but now I need to "restart" Fluxbox in order for it to take effect.
Is there a way to restart or exit Fluxbox using only keyboard commands?
I'm assuming that if I just hit the Power Off button on my 'puter I'll lose all of my file editing?

As root ... run this command:

/usr/local/bin/mrpostman.sh


When I do this, I get the following:

-bash: line 1: -jar: command not found


This is my executable file /usr/local/bin/mrpostman.sh :


CODE
#!/bin/bash

PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin

JAVA=/usr/bin/java

MRPOSTMAN=/usr/bin/MrPostman-20040616.jar

USER=kurt

/bin/su - $USER -c '$JAVA -jar $MRPOSTMAN &'

Any ideas where to go from here?
I've double checked the steps I took, looking for keying errors and such, but
it all looks o.k.

You didn't mention your distro ... but most have a file named rc.local ... it is usually either in /etc, or /etc/rc.d, or /etc/init.d .... edit that file and add (at the very bottom of it)


I'm using Mandrake 10.0 Official, and
I found (2) "rc.local" files. Does it matter which one I use?:

[root@bb-66-63-69-44 kurt]# /usr/bin/find / -name rc.local
/etc/rc.d/rc.local
/etc/rc.local

I've installed MrPostman, which is a .jar file, to fetch Hotmail into Thunderbird.
It works well, kinda buggy, but a keeper. I currently have to start MrP in the consol by:

java -jar MrPostman-20040616.jar

Is it possible to set this up to automaticaly start/run during boot-up?
I'd also like it to run "in the background" if possible. Right now
the consol is open when it runs.

Problem solved!

I had a previous version of Wine installed (but not running) that conflicted
with this installation attempt. I simply (thru RPM DRAKE) uninstalled all traces of Wine, then installed the new as outlined above.

I still can't seem to run any windows programs thru the command linethough. I can get Wine to run a Windows Program by going into a windows folder ( /mnt/windows/program files/ etc) and clicking on a programs executable.

I'd really like help on being able to download/install/and run a windows program directly from Wine as if Windows wasn't installed on my 'puter.
Any thoughts on that? THAT would really allow me a clean break from Windows...

I''m running Mandrake 10.0 Official and have installed & configured Wine as follows:

"You must go to
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...ackage_id=80066
and download wine-20040505-mdk1.i586.rpm

then you must download from here
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...p?group_id=6241
The file winesetuptk-0-73.i586.rpm

install wine-20040505-mdk1.i586.rpm as root
and then you must install winesetuptk-0-73.i586.rpm as root also

To configure wine you must run as normal user winesetuptk
****you must make fake windows folder."

I then entered "wine" in Konsole but got:
"bash: wine: command not found"
I then went to /usr/bin but could not find a "wine" executable,
nor do I see one in /usr/lib/wine

I've been to the Wine site, but, their How-to is wayyyyyyyyyyy over my newbie head.
(it can't be a complex as they make it out to be, could it?)

If I understand correctly,

Program Directories go in------------> /usr/lib
and
Executable Files, or a Logical Link to an Executable File, go in --------> /usr/bin

Thanks again !!

Thanks hughesjr I appreciate your help!

I understand what "mv thunderbird/ /usr/lib/ " does,
but what is "ln -s /usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird /usr/bin/thunberbird" ?

I downloaded and installed Mozilla Thunderbird in my Home directory.
I now have a folder in Home titled Thunderbird. I opened the folder, clicked on files till the program executed, then created a shortcut to that executing file on my desktop.

Is Home the "proper place" to keep installed program files?
Is there a better way to figure out what file executes a program?

I'm a Linux newbie who's trying to unlearn Windows.
One thing I've noticed about Linux is that you need to 'think' biggrin.gif !!

Using the Mandrake Control Center I selected icsWM to install. It asked me to insert Mandrake Disk 2 which I did. After all was done and said I re-booted expecting to see a new desktop. Wrong. Now what should I do? I half expected some sort of option menu during boot-up asking what WM I wanted to use but that is not the case. Any suggestions?

Thanks for all your suggestions!

I think I'll try using either Enlightenment of Fluxbox as my window manager instead of KDE. I don't want to give up on Linux even though my first impression isn't (wasn't ?) that favorable.

Any advise on installation? Do I need to delete KDE?

I'm running an AMD 400mhz processor and 192mb RAM.
I guess thats the problem?
Mandrake Linux, or Linux in general, needs lotsa CPU and RAM?

I've downloaded and installed MDK 10.0 Official and it runs real slow compaired to W2K on my dual boot machine. This is my first exposure to Linux. Is there anything this Linux Newbie should "configure" or check out to improve program load speed?
Please be patient, Linux is NEW to me and I'm not up to speed yet!
