16 Ha, the problem is back, dolphins everywhere. The problem seems to be,
17 for me at least, that when I close Dolphin after doing a bit of
18 file/folder stuff that the GUI shuts down but some zombie part remains.
19 Just now, when I fired the machine up, I had three instances of Dolphin
20 running. I closed all three, little red button top right hand corner and
21 did a:
23 ps -A | grep dolphin | wc -l
25 Sure enough 3 zombies. Open Dolphin, do some "stuff", close Dolphin, do
26 the "ps" command above and I' ve now got 4 zombies. Do this a couple of
27 more times and I now have 8 - 9 zombies.
29 Clean out ~/.config/session, ie it's now empty, and shut the machine
30 down. Restart machine and hey presto, 8 - 9 Dolphins up and running and
31 ~/.config/session contains 8 - 9 Dolphin "restart config", or whatever
32 they are called, files.
34 I think it is time to head over to some KDE forum and ask questions there.
