I am trying to run unetbootin-625 on KDE Plasma.

Here are the problems I see:
1. It won't start from the KDE menu. I get the login screen and it fails.
2. If I log in as root on a terminal and select an ISO and hit the "..." button. I get an error message. "Cannot start process. Cannot talk to klauncher Not connected to D-Bus server.
3. If I find the ISO file manually, and select the Open button, I get the following:
Code:

launcher(27927) kdemain: No DBUS session-bus found. Check if you have started the DBUS server.
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
klauncher(27930) kdemain: No DBUS session-bus found. Check if you have started the DBUS server.
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
startkdeinitlock(25784): couldn't create slave: "Cannot talk to klauncher: Not connected to D-Bus server"
klauncher(27933) kdemain: No DBUS session-bus found. Check if you have started the DBUS server.
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
klauncher(27936) kdemain: No DBUS session-bus found. Check if you have started the DBUS server.
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
startkdeinitlock(25784): couldn't create slave: "Cannot talk to klauncher: Not connected to D-Bus server"
klauncher(27939) kdemain: No DBUS session-bus found. Check if you have started the DBUS server.
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
klauncher(27942) kdemain: No DBUS session-bus found. Check if you have started the DBUS server.
kdeinit4: Communication error with launcher. Exiting!
startkdeinitlock(25784): couldn't create slave: "Cannot talk to klauncher: Not connected to D-Bus server"

4. Plus for some reason the USB drive will not mount.


This is supposedly the latest version of KDE plasma. and unetbootin

emerge --info follows but it is clear that kDE is a disaster.
Code:

bopper /etc/portage # emerge --info unetbootin

both of your issues appear related to permissions. check if consolekit/policykit or whatever kde uses is malfunctioning

That's a very confident statement for someone who has not even begun to rule out own failure yet. Especially considering the last time you were quick to blame a news item for simple lack of reading comprehension.

Did you check that dbus is started?
Is your session manager started? /* I see, systemd now. */
How do you start your session?
I don't know unetbootin but you are aware of kdesu for starting a gui with root privileges? Root from konsole is a big no-no.
What did you do before it stopped working?
Shall we assume that, since this is posted in Installing Gentoo, it is a recent installation of yours?

Since original poster no longer replies, let me try a variation.

Unetbootin used to work fine.

Now (last use: probably last year), after getting prompt-for-root password from KDE, and supplying root password, it dies thusly:

Code:

Cannot execute command ' 'bash -c '\''QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 /usr/bin/unetbootin "rootcheck=no"'\''''.


Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks, Ian
