Kubuntu 12.10 Does not run select programs

Posted 09 March 2013 - 04:25 PM

I'm slowly converting from windows to kubuntu 12.10 and don't know what took me so long :dangole:/>/> . The problem I have is that there are a select few programs that will not run (two of them came with the operating system), here they are:

Splash Streamer
Blue Devil
Sound Mixer/KMix

When I try to open them they appear in the panel but do not open, and eventually disappear from the panel. I've been searching for a way to correct this (hopefully without reinstalling the whole OS) but with no luck.

Any suggestions welcome :helpsmilie:/>/>

See what happens when you try to run them through the terminal.

I'm not familiar with those programs, but you can probably run them with the command line by typing a one-word, lowercase version of the app name. Like "kmix"

When i try kmix i get the following error:

QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.

also AMD catalyst will not open in superuser mode.

Well i got it mostly figured out but it leads me to another question. AMD Catalyst control center comes with two icons, one for administrator and one not. The one for administrator does not work but running it sudo from the command line it does open. Also running sudo kmix opens kmix (though it does throw a few errors). This leads to the question of how do you find the exe file for other programs....Splashtop Streamer for example.
