This is a resend, with a PS, the first copy never came back from the server
& its been about 12 hours elapsed. :( And I just fixed a typu, its libqt-
dbus etc etc.
A script that I have been using for 3 or 4 years seems as if it is now
broken. This script sends inotifywait off the to watch the incoming mail
spool directory, and when a file has been closed, and inotifywait returns
the filename, then sends kmail a message over the dbus circuit to go get
That command line that has tickled kmail from my now elderly script:
/usr/bin/qdbus org.kde.kmail /KMail org.kde.kmail.kmail.checkMail
is now eliciting this error on the screen it was launched from:
/usr/bin/qdbus: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libQtDBus.so.4: undefined
So now I have to click on checkmail from time to time as my incoming mail
is no longer automatic.
Can anyone help, or is this a newly hatched bug in libqt4-dbus? Searching
in /var/cache/apt/archives shows that file has not been recently updated,
gene at coyote:/var/cache/apt/archives$ ls -l |grep dbus

Thanks for any clues here.
And a PS of sorts, I've just discovered that my games menu is
disabled by this same message popping up even when I try to run them by
hand. Trying to run kpat for instance:
gene at coyote:/opt/nitros9/level2/modules$ kpat
kpat: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libQtDBus.so.4: undefined symbol:
That raises the priority somewhat when the games won't run ;)
Thanks. Or is this something I should take to launchpad?
