Not <the> Paul Simon, just the third after the singer and late senator from Illinois.   Simple Simon was heard many times as well other variants on Simon.  Actually I'm a retired chemist here in Silicon Valley and worked on magnetic recording heads for many years.

Thanks again for the attention!

        Clicking icons on the desktop won't execute programs with rare execption.
        If I run the command from the command line (Konsole), e.g., dolphin,  the
        error message is:

        "symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libkio.so.5: undefined symbol: " followed
        by various ascii chars.  I think it has gotten down into my cron file too.
        Any ideas?

        Paul Simon

      Never mind.  Sorry.  Just rebooted the computer and all is fine now.  Thanks
      for listening.


    I just read this; glad to know all's well.  That message sometimes appears where some KDE games are installed, without all the K Desktop Environment itself. Simply install KDE to avoid the message.  Regular updates of installed system software help, too.

    I've spent many pleasurable hours listening to Paul Simon.

  Me too! I grew up listening to Paul Simon.
  Paul, are you THE Paul Simon? Because I just had a geekgasm thinking about THE Paul Simon using Linux, and the distro that I contribute to too!
