kubuntu 12.10 crash

Mon Nov 05, 2012 10:30 pm
kubuntu 12.10 - Was running beautifully for 5 days until -during the uninstall of nepomuk, all my panel icons
started to be removed, one by one!
On reboot, kubuntu would not restart - blank screen with message box "user/bin/startkde" not found :
falling back to default session".

Could not restart whatever boot menu choice I chose, including "Repair broken Packages".
I would sure appreciate any suggestions!

define "the uninstall of nepomuk

I'm guessing you un-installed more packages then you meant to inc the package kde-workspace-bin, would suggest you reinstall all kde packages to be safe


OpenSuse 13.2 x64, KDE 4.14.x & Plasma 5.x

You should probably do
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install kde-standard

and see if this fixes your problem.
It's very likely that other packages have been removed, if I try to remove Nepomuk a huge list of packages to be removed along with Nepomuk comes out (I have Kubuntu 12.10 too).
