*  I did as you instructed and status is the same, but this additional

  information might help. The inability to type is obviously a KDE

  File concern as that is the only session this occurs in. I am in

  Ubuntu with a kubuntu desk top. Please advise from this new

  information or do I need to go to the KDE list not intended to

  cast any doubts on your KDE ability. [?][?]

  I sincerely appreciate your assistance.
