I try to elaborate as good as I remember: I was since some time (months) on R14.0.1 from mirror mentioned above but without constantly updating. I had severe problems with gnuplot (using term x11) that - very often - crashed TDE in one instant without any message / notice anywhere. Very anoying! All open windows gone, I hat to logg-in again and recreate my working environment. That was the reason to upgrade to the latest version of R14.0.1. Unfortunately I can not remember if I used apt-get upgrade or dist-upgrade. All packeges have been updated successfully. Some time later, I realized that I no longer could launch Kontak with its icon. I launched it from Konsole and got the error message I described in my latest post. For I mainly use Kmail from Kontakt I launched Kmail from Konsole and it opened and downloaded new mails. But trying to send a mail Kmail froze in sending and I was not able to stop the send process or to terminate Kmail by any button or menu entry. So I had to kill it. Afterwards I was not longer able to launch Kmail. It crashed at once with a message I can not remember. For my guess was that it was due to the upgrade, I tried to downgrade to a save state (R14.0.0) with some troubles (described in the other mail). After sucessfully deleting all TDE packages R14.0.1 and reinstalling R14.0.0 still I was not able to launch Kontakt or Kmail. I created a new testuser and logged in with a fresh .trinity folder. Kmail worked. Obviously something was broken in my .trinity settings. I tried to compare both folders / subfolders with "meld" without success. Fortunately I hat a 2 month old backup of the .trinity folder that I restored. Afterwards Kontakt and Kmail worked again like a charm. So I suspect if I upgrade again to R14.0.1 it might work as well with the repaired .trinity folder but I have not yet tested (it's a production machine and I can not allow it to chrash again). Nonetheless if I can do anything for further investigation please let me know. Gerhard PS: gnuplot still crashs X often when using (set term x11) for the graphical output. I meanwhile compiled latest version myself and use now "set term qt" as the graphical terminal that works without a hickup. I'm a bit surprised that an application is able to chrash X from one moment to the next.
