    RE: [finished] No graphical interface (stops booting at: "starting timidity alsa midi emulation")
    Thank you very much for your help, but unfortunately I did not manage to solve this problem. And because I did not really know whether this was actually possible, I took this as the occasion to switch from Kubuntu to OpenSUSE. So this issue can be seen as [b]"solved"[/b]. :)

    RE: [finished] No graphical interface (stops booting at: "starting timidity alsa midi emulation")
    Hi, I received the permissions error when I tried to run the plasmapkg-command in order to install a plasmoid (with sudo, of course). Strangely this has worked out fine a few times before even though I can't remember to have changed any configurations in the mean time. So I think I actually did not do anything that seemed to me to have something to do with the main error...

    [finished] No graphical interface (stops booting at: "starting timidity alsa midi emulation")
    Alright, I did it. ;) My Kubuntu doesn't load the login screen or the graphical interface anymore but stops booting when it prints "Starting TiMidity++ ALSA midi emulation... [ OK ]". However, I can't tell exactly which action has caused this: Before some parts of my workspace have crashed and restarted, and afterwards the workspace was rather slow. Yet before I restarted the system, I've also changed the owner of the folders /var and /etc to root (stupid idea? ^^) in order to fix another problem (message was sth like "... is owned by uid 1000, should be 0"). So I was wondering now, if there's a way to fix this problem without a complete reinstallation. Thanks in advance and just ask if you think you need to know some more things. :)

    RE: Here I am :)
    Well, I'm using KDE mainly because there's a lot of applications for it that don't have a real Gnome alternative - and also because i find it more stylish. Yet I can fully understand if people have a different preference. ^^ Thanks for welcoming, anyway. :)

    Here I am :)
    Hey all, yeah, what should I say? I've been working with Linux for about three years. So I'm not a complete "newbie" (no offense :) ), although I am certainly going to have some questions now and then. And as far as I've read through some postings here, this seems to be some really friendly place for this. If I find the time, I am writing some things in PHP and for about one week I've been trying to get into developing plasmoids for KDE using Python. And just in case this matters, currently I am using Kubuntu on my netbook, but for my desktop pc I prefer OpenSUSE (although it's broken at the moment). - vex7 / David
