I've just given this a go, and still no luck. /var/lock contained only a 
subfolder called 'subsys', which contained a numer of files, but none 
apparently associted with sysguard. I've given full access to all thes 
files/folders and still have the same thing; ksysguard application works 
fine, but still no connection on the applet.

Anyone got any other ideas please?



PS I've now got a battery monitor from kde-utils-laptop, but now no 
system monitor!
