Description cms01 2006-10-16 05:17:00 UTC
Version:           0.2 (using KDE 3.5.5, Kubuntu (edgy) 4:3.5.5-0ubuntu2)
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.17-10-generic

Here is my problem
When I click on System Settings->Monitor and Display I get the following error message:

The module Monitor and Display could not be loaded.

The diagnostics is(sic):

Possible reasons:
  *An error occurred during your last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control module.
  *You have old third party modules lying around.
AND I notice the text on the screen is very small... 

All this, when I did a update.

its also User Management, and Disk & File System, that are also infected as well, with this BUG !!! as I find out today, trying to do some DISK work... CAN'T.

Comment 2 thunderheart 2006-11-01 16:11:54 UTC

same context that cms01, and same problem after a dist-upgrade (KUbuntu Dapper->Edgy) :(

Comment 3 John Soltis 2007-05-25 22:21:41 UTC
I have the same problem, I'm going to reinstall this all.
Comment 4 Gene Mosher 2007-07-19 16:50:26 UTC
There is another symptom which accompanies this bug.  It is described in # 126561, namely the Display button in Configure - KDesktop is missing. The problem I'm having is on a box with an ATI Radeon X850 Pro AGP.  Another box I have with Nvidia graphics does not have this problem.  When I first installed Kubuntu this feature worked properly.

The bug still exists in kubuntu hardy heron alfa2 and 3.

Easiest way to see the errors behind the scenes... from a konsole start: 

"kcmshell System/userconfig"

This is one of those things which a lot of people will be hit by (have been hit by) when it's not fixed.

It's a confirmed bug, also logged at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/python-qt3/+bug/179763 e.g.
Comment 6 Sven Boden 2008-01-30 19:34:57 UTC
Some more information... the bug only occurs when you run from a cleanly installed   Hardy Heron 8.4 live cd (alpha 2/3).

If you execute "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/userconfig.py" from a konsole it does work... my hunch is that somehow the desktops picks a wrong version of python and that if you don't have a clean install it may still work because of left over files somewhere.

Installing the development packages of python also does not help.

This was fixed in Ubuntu 8.04 final version (so it can be closed).
Comment 8 Pino Toscano 2008-06-08 10:41:29 UTC
All the modules reported in this bug report as Kubuntu-specific.

Sorry, but KDE can do nothing about that, please report to Kubuntu.
