I have two boxes. On one box I installed KDE 5 from scratch, on the other box I upgraded from KDE 4 to KDE 5. Old legacy KDE 4, such as media-video/kplayer-0.7.2-r1:4 do not start, because the socket kdeinit4__0 is missing. This only affects the box with the clean install. However, all necessary KDE 4 dependencies are installed.

The error message is:
Code:

KCrash: Connect sock_file=/home/matthias/.kde4/socket-matthias-laptop/kdeinit4__0
KCrash: connect() failed: : File or directory missing


The folder /home/matthias/.kde4/ contains two broken symlinks because their destination is mssing:

  • socket-matthias-laptop --> /run/user/1000/ksocket-matthias
  • tmp-matthias-laptop --> /tmp/kde-matthias


Any ideas?
