xdg-open error "unknown program name"

Asked by gnufied on 2009-06-14

Binary package hint: kubuntu-desktop

On Kubuntu 9.04 xdg-open and kde-open seem to be broken. On my machine running KDE 4.2.4 (from PPA). Both kde-open and xdg-open throws:

5297 jui % xdg-open README
Qt: Session management error: Could not open network socket
<unknown program name>(15086)/ ClientApp::doIt: Creating ClientApp
Qt: Session management error: Could not open network socket
kioclient(15086): Session bus not found

The problem persists with any type of files(such as pdf, html)

Actually your dbus session bus seems to be broken, which is an issue, but no bug -> converting to question :)

kioclien doesnot supported by i5086

`dbus-launch` uses random D-Bus addresses, which makes for problems.1

Can you help with this problem?
