Thanks for your help

It said something like "error could not fetch ..."
it seemed it could not retrieve the sources from any of the servers,  
and the installation stopped.
so I used "sudo port install" again and it fetched it OK

I changed ownership and permissions as RW

after your mail I checked what is in /Preferences/KDE  and there was a  
link to "tmp-macbook-pro-de-maxime.local" but then it says the  
original file is missing, dead link.

this is what I get:

yes, it looks like dbus is part of the problem.


(by the way, since I now have macport, is it possible to have Dolphin  
running on Mac?)
