Fwd: Re: Kubuntu KDE4.1 - Dolphin won't start

Hi Karl,

Try stopping the Nepomuk Service.
In System Settings click the Advanced tab.
Then "Nepomuk" and click "OK" when the window pops up.
This should bring up the Nepomuk/Strigi Server Configuration.
Select the tab "Basic Settings" and Uncheck "Enable Nepomuk Semantic Desktop" and make sure enable Strigi is not checked.  Click Apply and Log Out.

My assumptions:
- You updated your system to KDE4.1 using the instructions provided at http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-4.1.  
- You're using the Adept Manager and NOT Synaptic Package Manager.  I've run into issues using Synaptic with KDE 4.x.
- Dolphin version 1.1

Note that you should make sure to add the widget, "Application Launcher Menu, Traditional Menu Based" in addition to keep using the default "Application Launder".  Why have both?  Because I've found that sometimes an application (like kate) will only start in the traditional menu and not the default menu.

Also read, http://www.kde.org/announcements/4.1/ so you're aware which user base KDE4.x is targeting.  Bugs reported at, http://bugs.kde.org/.
