Trouble Shooting

Can't create mcopy directory

This usually happens where you're not using KDE, but using a KDE application. It is because it expects directories ~/.kde and /tmp/ksocket-${USER} to be world readable.

Usually creating these using mkdir or chmod them appropriately, fixes the problem.

   $ mkdir ~/.kde /tmp/ksocket-${USER}
   $ chmod 755 ~/.kde /tmp/ksocket-${USER}
