running applications as root use kdesu or sudo

Code: Select all
$ kdesu dolphin


Code: Select all
$ sudo dolphin

'Root Dolphin' is and has always been launched by kdesu /usr/bin/dolphin with no problems in opening files.
The D-bus failure has only happened immediately after the update.

I can confirm that after the update many problem happen in gnome too. Many policy-script-files change (i think) so the desktop environment doesn't work as I remember before the update. E.g. cannot access to configure the Networkmanager, after change the policy in /usr/share I was able to change the settings. But VPN configuration failed because the vpn-services wasn't startet. Second, the Services at startup I cannot change also. I think that ist a basically scripting problem with the new update. So I have to spent many time to find out what all happen and what works or not. Currently I have no Idea how I solve this without look in every configuration-Script.

That all happens afters the update. At first time after the installation from the dvd all works fine. After the update with sulfur that come all problems as described above...

greetings,

Try to reboot your machine if you run into dbus issues.

Rebooted immediately after the updates and a couple of times since. D-bus is loading and running.

Thanks Joost.

kdesu dolphin starts dolphin OK as root but I cannot open any files with any program without getting the D-bus error message.
I can always press F4 for a dolphin console and edit them with nano if necessary, buts that's not what I want.
This has always worked OK until yesterdays update.

might as well run "equo libtest" while you are at it.
I have 2 systems on kde 4.6.2, 1 is gentoo, one is sabayon.
For those of us that installed it early, had a minor shut down issue, I also saw a few other warnings. for example, If I tried to launch apps as soon as the desktop appeared, A dialogue box would pop up saying klaauncher had not been loaded ... had seen errors about dbus also.
For me, I just needed to wait another 30 seconds for everything to load. On gentoo, after I got the update to fix the shutdown issue, I still could not shutdown from kde. After working on it for awhile with no success. In a user terminal,
mv ~/.kde4 ~/.kde4.back

When you restart kde, everything will be set back to default. You will lose your wallpaper, any custom settings you made etc..
All will be gone, and you will need to start fresh.
But this worked for me, and might fix your issues also. kde 4.6.2 is working fine here, the transition from 4.6.1 was a little bumpy.
