I'm a complete linux newbie, so try not to go too hard on me. I
recently installed the Red Hat 5.1 distribution (Kernel 2.0.34) along
with XFree86 (3.3.2) and KDE. I'm loving life now that KDE's running,
but somehow I must have screwed up a config file along the way.
Whenever I boot into KDE, I get an ERROR box (sometimes two) that says:
Could not find mime type
Just hitting OK dismisses it, but occasionally it'll pop back up when I
do certain things, most notably starting File Manager (super user
mode). I don't think it's causing other difficulties, but I find that
occasionally, after I dismiss this message multiple times, I then can't
run anything. I click on programs in the K menu or on the launcher bar
and nothing happens. I have to logout and log back on to get things
Now, realize that I don't have a clue what I'm doing here, but I went
and looked at the file in question. It appears to be a launcher for the
KZip application. When I bring up the properties dialog, there is
indeed a mime type listed for "application/x-tbz". (And that pretty
much exhausts the troubleshooting I'm able to do with my limited
I think this started popping up around the time I first used K | Panel |
Edit Menus to edit the title of some of my "non-KDE Apps".
Interestingly, in the "K" menu, the selection that takes me to the
non-KDE Apps and Red Hat Linux apps used to have the title "applnk". At
about the same time as this message started appearing, it dropped it's
title and is now blank except for the little square. (Not sure if
that's relevant at all, though.)
In an unrelated (I think) problem, I have recently experienced
difficulty (ok it's impossible) logging in as any user other than root.
I'm using the K login util, and it had been working fine for both
regular users and root. However, when I booted up this morning, I tried
to log in as a regular user, and once I entered my password and pressed
ENTER, the hard drive whirred quickly, the screen blanked for a second
or two, and then the login box appeared again. I tried a couple more
times, entering my password very carefully (checked CAPS lock, etc) but
no dice. I then logged in as root and changed my password for the
regular user account. Tried it again--no luck. Everything must have
been configured correctly at one time, because I used this user account
for a good week without any problems.
Any help on these issues would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in
