I am not sure if this a dolphin problem or anything else, it just gets annoying having to click ok on a popup after each click on a text file.

I don't think this is a duplicate of the issue in bug 75492. This is apparently Dolphin-specific (although I'm sure root cause will will be kdelibs somewhere), and differs in the that program does successfully launch.
Haris, is this *just* with kate or does e.g. clicking on an image give you an error about gwenview? And does kate actually exist in /usr/lib/kde4/bin/kate ?
It seems to happen only with kate. The kate executable does exist in that location:
ls -al /usr/lib/kde4/bin/kate
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3164 2008-06-05 21:36 /usr/lib/kde4/bin/kate
The question is, which kate.desktop file is being used, and what does it say (especially the X-DBUS-StartupType line). Check ~/.kde and ~/.local for a local kate.desktop override.

I run also into this.
I recently saw a posting about this .. I think on the kde-redhat users group list.
The poster said remove the %U from a kate desktop file fixed the problem.
But I didn't try.
Just reporting as a possible solution to explore.
Wow, that really did the trick! I did not open Kate via a desktop icon, but directly by clicking on a text file. I edited the properties for text files and edited the associated Kate entry and removed - as you proposed - the %U parameter.
Now the errormessage no longer appears when opening and closing textfiles with Kate. Great!
That's just a side effect, the problem isn't %U, but a wrong key in the desktop file. By modifying it you're creating a local copy of it, which doesn't have that wrong key. Both problems are fixed, see Bug 157853.
