No desktop any more!

No desktop any more!

Hi everybody,

My desktop has disapeared! All I get is that beige startup background and
the taskbar.

I've launched kppp and mozilla thanks to icons on the taskbar. Apparently,
everything works when launched from the taskbar, the K-menu or Konsole...
except Konqueror which crashes with a Signal 11 (SIGSEGV).

I tried startx both as user or as root but the result was the same. And when
I try to launch kdesktop from Konsole, all I get is:

ERROR: KUniqueApplication: DCOP communication error!

Message repeated until I kill kdesktop.

I don't understand why such a problem has appeared! I've installed nothing
new, I've made no * configuration. No nothing! I just shutdowned as
usually then powered on later and kdestop stopped working.

Does somebody have an idea about how to fix this problem without updating?

My config : SuSE 8.0, X 4.2 and KDE 3.0

See ya,

Remi Villatel

Thanks to Murphy, my desktop came back the way it disappeared: silently and
misteriously. May Thou be thanked, Murphy! Let Thy computer misteries happen
here and everywhere.  ;-)

1. Not Available these Signal nos on Linux


The following macros are there on AIX  but not on Linux.If we have
on Linux pls  suggest me how to use(say path) or tell me alternative?

#define SIGDANGER 33    /* system crash imminent; free up some page
space */
#define SIGSAK    63    /* secure attention key */
#define SIGSOUND  62    /* sound control has completed */
#define SIGKAP    60    /* keep alive poll from native keyboard */
#define SIGGRANT  SIGKAP /* monitor mode granted */
#define SIGRETRACT 61   /* monitor mode should be relinguished */
#define  F_CLOSEM       10/**on AIX /usr/include/fcntl.h****/
#define _D_NAME_MAX 255
