hopefully someone can help.
I had MintKDE installed on my laptop, and as I recall Phatch would not load - instead I just got the logo, but the program itself never started. I applied the changes detailed here - https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=811184#12 - and it then worked.
I've recently changed OS to Kubuntu, and Phatch now does not load - the symptoms are the same - I get a Phatch logo, but it never actaully starts. I've removed it and reinstalled it, and tried the changes as detailed, but it still will not load.
I wonder if anyone could help? Phatch saves me a lot of time when it works!
