What Happened -can't use GUI interfaces

Postby jcgg » Fri Aug 06, 2010 16:23

I can no longer use the GUI system settings. I click and nothing happens. I can't use the update shield in the task bar, I click and nothing happens. I used to be able to use these functions as a regular user. Now I have to use Konsole as root to get anything done. What has happened?

What information would you like? KDE 5.3 Sabayon AMD 64. I used to be able to mouse click all icons residing on my computer and the application would open. Now I double click and nothing happens.

please try to launch an application wich does not work anymore from the console, not as root, and report back the output. e.g.
Code: Select all
firefox
