Fedora :: KDE Will Not Launch?

Aug 8, 2010

My first distro was kubuntu, and am now trying Fedora with KDE. I was annoyed that the open windows were not shown on the task bar. I tried adjusting all sorts of things, and finally figured out that all I had to do was add a certain widget. I had no idea that this is what I was looking for, since kubuntu already does that by default. But in the process of figuring this out, I caused KDE to crash. The next time booted with Fedora, KDE would not launch. So I logged into a virtual terminal and ran startx. I got the following errors:

error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
startkde: could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation.

Fedora :: KDEInit Could Not Launch Usr/bin/skype

Aug 29, 2011

I've just made the leap from Windows to Linux after years of flirting with the idea. I downloaded and installed Fedora 15 KDE 64 bit (I have tried it before and remember KDE was the windows manager I used previously, so chose that).

However, when trying to get Skype to launch, I receive the error message: KDEInit could not launch usr/bin/skype

Before settling on Fedora, I also tried Linux Mint, using GNOME. Since the error message seems to suggest KDE is the problem, would it be possible to switch to GNOME, without having to redownload and do a clean install? Or would this be the equivalent of using a sledge hammer to crack a nut?

Fedora Security :: Some Applications Won't Launch After Update (10)?

Mar 25, 2009

Today (25 of March) Fedora 10 asked to install latest security updates. I allowed it to install them and everything seemed ok. But after the next boot I understood that some applications won't launch. Skype, last.fm player, VirtualBox - all the qt ones. I've reinstalled those apps, and reinstalled qt. They still don't launch.When I execute one of them from terminal - it just waits and nothing happens.The process really starts, I can see it from ps -A and gnome's System Monitor.Here's the /var/log/yum.log for March 25th:

Mar 25 00:20:37 Updated: libX11-1.1.5-1.fc10.i386

Fedora :: F12 Two Versions On Boot - Cannot Launch Firefox

Dec 21, 2009

I installed f12 few days back. A pop up came which mentioned '336 new updates available' and I opted 'install only security updates'.

Now in the boot screen 3 options come instead of 2:
1. Fedora
2. Fedora
3. Windows

I am able to boot into both versions of fedora, but I cannot launch firefox it says-'your version of SQlite is too old and the application cannot run'. How do I correct the screw up. Should I re-install the whole thing....? why is it showing as 2 versions....? I installed yumex recently, is it the reason.....?

Fedora :: Launch X Apps On A Remote Ssh Session?

Mar 5, 2010

Desktop computer (AMD64) running F12. Nothing unusual about it, stock install. Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP. Putty is installed, I can SSH to Fedora.

If I'm at the laptop, in a Putty session, how can I (for example) type "firefox" and have the resultant Firefox window appear on-the-laptop?

I generally have X running all the time on the desktop because I can't get the wireless network connection to function without NetworkManger (not that I really care because I'm rarely at a console screen and need net access).

Fedora :: F14: GNOME Won't Launch Firefox / Thunderbird

Jun 8, 2011

Noticed this last night, when I try and launch either Firefox or Thunderbird using the GNOME menu or the quick launch icons, it fails. I am able to launch them both from the command line in a terminal. Other applications seem to launch fine, so I'm at a bit of a loss where to begin taking this apart... I do get a task in the task bar that says "Launching Firefox", but then nothing comes up. The same thing happens with Thunderbird. That task just goes away. Another odd thing - following a reboot the launch buttons work once. If I close them, they won't launch again unless I run them from a terminal window.

Fedora :: Launch A Bash Script (game) With A Shorcut?

Jun 11, 2010

I just downloaded a game Cube 2: Sauerbraten and I am trying to make a shortcut in Application->Games.

Basically to launch a game I have to double-click on a file, which is a script that invokes the rest of the game. After double clicking a dialog shows up that asks me whether I want to edit the file, run in terminal, or just run. I have no problem running it this way, but my shortcut in Applications->Games does not work. I have tried setting shortcut option to "Application" and "Application in Terminal" and nothing happens.

As of now the shortcut command points directly to that start script. I have also tried to do "sh /path/to/game" and still no success. How do I make that shortcut work?

Fedora :: Launch Script When Bluetooth Device Connects?

Aug 4, 2010

When a bluetooth controller I have connects I'd like a program launched (qjoypad) so that I can use it has a mouse. The controller has to be on before launching qjoypad otherwise qjoypad will not work.

So I was wondering if there is a way to launch a script when my controller connects, and then possibly when it disconnects to launch another script killing the qjoypad process.

EDIT: I created a script that checks if /dev/input/js0 exists, if it does then qjoypad is created

while true; do
if [ -c "/dev/input/js0" ]; then

Fedora Servers :: Unable To Launch Firefox From NIS Accounts

Dec 10, 2010

I have a problem concerning about launching Firefox from NIS accounts. But it works perfectly if is started on terminal by the the local root account.

I have several hosts that's connected to a NIS server. When I tried to launch Firefox from one of these hosts, I got no response (Case 1 below). Here are the scenarios:

Case 1 - Fail to launch Firefox as NIS user: I login as NIS user account on the host, then I tried to launch Firefox by typing "firefox" on the terminal. But then I got no response from the terminal (the web browser didn't appear on the screen).

Case 2 - Success to launch Firefox as root: I login as root on the host, then I tried to launch Firefox by typing "firefox" on the terminal. The browser has appeared on the screen.

Case 3 - Success to launch Firefox as NIS user: I login as NIS user account on the host, then from a terminal, I login as root (using "su"), then I tried to launch Firefox by typing "firefox" on the terminal as root. The browser has appeared on the screen. Then immediately, without closing the browser window, I opened a new terminal as NIS user, then I tried to launch Firefox by typing "firefox" on the terminal as NIS user.

Fedora :: Can't Launch Restore Partition On Dual Boot?

Mar 10, 2011

Problem concerns HP laptop running XP and Fedora 13 and using Grub2. When installed the grub became the primary bootloader. I have been unable to successfully use any of the common fixes to reload the windows bootloaderWindows install has been unable to reload the windows bootloader. With the grub being primary I cannot access the factory restore partition.Is there a way to disable the grub and force the machine to the restore partition or use a recovery distro to run it? I have tried Knoppix but was unable to access the partition. I am still a linux wbie and understand I may be missing something simple but have yet to resolve the issue and need help. I need to reformat the machine and will run linux from an external usb. At this point all data is backed up and I am open for any options.

I have tried to access the MBR directly but fixing it is beyond my current skill level.Additional details: Initial linux install along-side XP was Mint 9. It completely wiped out the bootloader and failed to install properly. Installed Fedora and it reloaded the grub and fixed the bootloader which allowed the machine to boot and function with both OS's.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Launch Bar And Top Bar Gone?

Apr 28, 2011

I have been using ubuntu since 10.04 version and configure with compiz to activate the corners, cube, etc. No problems with that. When I upgraded to 11.04 these things were not working but honestly I did not care that much and was just playing with compiz, so I was playing with an option in compiz about the size of the icons in the new 11.04 launch bar, just when I clicked it my top bar and launch bar are gone and not coming back after rebooting many times. BTW I already uninstalled compiz via terminal and the same problem is happening, maybe important for you to know (alt+f2 or other shortcuts not working except for ctr+alt+t)
