The password authorization also doesn't work for Kynaptic.  The error message 
is:  "There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE.  
The message returned by the system was: Authentication Rejected, reason: None 
of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host based aut
Please check that the 'dcopserver' program is running!"

Can anyone tell me what does this mean?  What is 'dcopserver'?  And how to run
