qdbus is missing in Petra KDE 64bit
Postby blue_bullet on Mon Dec 23, 2013 7:19 pm
I have a program that toggles sound on/off that ran fine in Olivia KDE 64 bit. When I run in in Petra KDE 64bit I get the following error:
qdbus: could not exec '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/qdbus': No such file or directory
I tried sudo apt-get install --reinstall qdbus, but that did not fix the problem.
In Konsole I did kdesudo dolphin and copied the qdbus file from the bin directory in Olivia to Petra and the program now works.
I realize that is not the way to fix things, especially since others may have the same problem and my fix is local to my machine.
Can someone tell me the proper way to report this problem?

qdbus is not part of dbus (it's part of Qt), and in any case, we are not responsible for how a particular Linux/BSD/... distribution splits up packages.
Please talk to the support forums or mailing lists of whatever "Petra" is a version of (my guess is some Debian derivative, but this is the first time I've heard of a distribution version with that name).
Thank you for your assistance on this and for correcting me. Petra is the newest release of Linux Mint. You may not have heard of it yet since it has only been out for a month or two. It takes a bit of time for the word to get out.
I understand it is No Tour Bug.
Please accept my apologies for reporting what I thought might be a bug. I now know better than to do that.
