One of the strange issues I’ve had with my Slackware 12 install is KDE Kicker (the toolbar across the bottom of the screen) crashing. It just seems to go away randomly, and typically when I’m not looking. Might be related to the screen saver. Initially I didn’t know how to fix it and was restarting X, which was a PITA. Eventually, I found a posting explaining that all I had to do was run the ‘kicker’ command and it would restart. Now it just crashes every couple days. Not sure if it’s worth trying to fix.
If anybody has an input on the problem, please leave a comment.
