Thread: Missing profile file management comand

    Missing profile file management comand

    If this is the wrong place sorry I searched and did not find my problem.

    Yesterday I was in super user mode while trying to add a tar for the kopete msn messenger chat problem, and had to reinstall
    kopete 9.xx.
    Anyway that did not fix the problem for the chat but did create this one.

    Both under file management super user and from the icon on my desktop I get this error

    [red]Command --profile filemanagement not found[/red]

    I am running a dual boot Linux Suse 9.2 and windows xp home
    My boot loader is grub and everything else seems to work.
    any help in restoring would be a big help.

    Hi,

    I just wanted to mention that i had a similar problem (Command --profile filemanagement not found) last week on suse 9.1 although the cause was different but the solution may be the same.
    This is what i did: (i have been using linux 4 about 2weeks, you may want to recheck my solution before using!)


    On a harddisk reboot, I logged in as root and copied my essential /home data files to my flashdrive. Then I ran reiserfsck --check /dev/hda2 and it reported 9 corrupted files. Next I ran reiserfsck --rebuid-tree /dev/hda2 and it fixed the corrupted files.

    regards,

    sybella

    Hello Hello,

    Have you tryed to delete all kopete files, and then recompile? It's possible (I think) that this is a compatibility problem.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for the respone ;D

    I don't think it is an issue of compatibility the dual boot has been
    running for some time.

    I would love to try the other suggestion but that is where the problem is.

    I can log into yast, but I can not log in as Admin or supper user

    I think I may end up having to start from scratch and if that happens then no more dual boot

    Your right my mistake I have a
    Bad habit of thinking faster than I type

    Let me run this down

    1. I can log into yast and do what ever
    2. I can run terminals where ever
    3. I can not get in to root to do anything
    4. I can not use the file manager super user

    The error for file manager super user is as I posted, if I try to log in at start and select anything other than the default log in I get the you do not have premision error.

    So basicly what has happened is the su profile in file management is gone along with root access, I may have figured out the why (I made an edit to a partion) but I can not figure out how to fix it other than a reformat, which I am trying to avoid due to loss of data.

    If you create another regular user account, then log in with it, are you able to use the super-user file manager?

    Re:Missing profile file management comand

    Is this by chance, a locked root account? I would check to see if you can login period to your root, if not, you will need to reset your root password and find out what borked it (rootkit or whatnot).

    The easiest way for me to explain resetting that would be to use your rescue option or enter runlevel 1. Either way you wont need to login to have root rights.
