I'm having this problem and I wanted to know if there's ananswer for it:
Yesterday I installed KDE (kubuntu-desktop) on my Ubuntu 12.10, and it was working great. Today when I try to start again in KDE it loads the splash screen with the Hard drive, the settings icon and some more, but then it gets black. The Alt+F2 command is not working, but I managed to open a terminal and log in there with Ctrl+Alt+F1. From there I tried to execute plasma-desktop command to open the environment, but there's an error that says:
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
plasma-desktop(5939): KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server: "Unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for X11"
plasma-desktop(5938): KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly.
If anyone knows whats wrong or what should I do I would really appreciate it. I hope I've been clear enough. If not please tell me and I'll try to explain better. Thanks in advance.
