Cannot talk to klauncher I’ve been updating my KDE 3.3 libraries for SUSE 9.2 and had some problems. Trying to run konqueror in file management mode as root gave the message: "Cannot talk to klauncher" The solution is to delete /root/.DCOPserver_*__0 Switch off autorun Every time I put a CD in to my drive, KSCD would start automatically (even though I had unticked "start automatically" in the KsCD options. The solution is to right-click on the Hardware Tool icon (the one in the kicker) and choose ‘configure’. The autorun options are all there. Thanks to Google, and the many people who post their tips and solutions on the web.
