Since today I can't start virt-manager anymore :-(
Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-yhDz4m8loi
By the way the same message as I get from qdbus.

There are no files called /tmp/dbus* on my system but
some dbus applications are running:
linux-dev:~# ps ax | grep dbus
 1774 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --system
 2436 ?        S      0:00 dbus-launch --autolaunch 1996d3ce005bf1ed73cca8164d21a0b5 --binary-syntax --close-stderr
 2437 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session

The error-message-box containing:
most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-Bus
 session bus daemon. See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/
But I've removed gnome and installed KDE.

Thanks in advance
Don't Panic
