Thanks for the info. gamin is installed. It looks like an ordinary
lib (i.e., I don't see an init-script that starts a server). Probably
it registers with the kernel...
There definitely should be a KDE-logfile or -monitor where error
messages go. Right now debugging is only guesswork. Just as opaque
and time-consuming as with Windows.
