View Full Version : kmail : i can't be the only person with this problem...?

I have fedora core 2. I want to use kmail.
I tried an installation but it was a botched job. As an ordinary user i typed kmail at a terminal. I got loads of error messages about not being able to do something coz of no gui (Ialways use a gui, i launched the terminal from a gui!)
in the end it launched kmail but there is no icon for me to launch it next time i log in and i still get error messages : knotify problems.
SO, what is the *proper* way to install kmail once i have set up fedora core 2?

When you say you "tried an installation", you mean you did install KMail from the FC2 CDs, right? You didn't get a binary for another distribution, did you?...
If so, then your Gnome menu has a laucher for KMail in "Internet -> More Internet Applications -> KMail". KDE also has an entry for it (I'm using Gnome at the moment). If there are errors, you may try listing them here.

I always thought that KMail was included by default when you installed KDE from FC2...

Thank you for your replies!
I did an cd installation of Fedora Core 2. I installed all the kde stuff from the options and on the internet section checked everything there too.
Eventually the 3 cds had spun there course and FC2 was up and running.
I looked for the kmail icon. I remember there was none there before i did anything and i have checked all the menus now and i cant see an icon for it in the pop ups.
What did it do to install kmail? I opened a terminal and typed kmail. Lots of text was generated (god knows where to find that stuff now!) Some of the initial errors reported i still see every time i fire up kmail:
QPixmap: Cannot create a QPixmap when no GUI is being used
If i reinstall fedora core 2 u think I will see kmail as an option on the pop up menu?
If i choose the install everything route : ) that might help... hehehe
There are mail options but they link to evolution...
