Had this same problem, ksysguard worked stand alone but adding sensors to the
applet would prompt a connection dialog.
I found the solution on the gentoo forums a log time ago
Here is the post at gentoo forums by Curtis:
Aha! I found the problem. None of the above solutions worked, so I poked
around more and tried removing all sensors from ksysguarddrc (after numerous
tries of other things, compiling manually, etc, etc).
If I remove the Acpi sensor, (I also had to delete
~/.kde/share/apps/ksysguard and ~/.kde/share/config/ksysguardrc), then
everything now works. yay!
Did something change in kde 3.4 that would make it not work with ACPI in the
2.6.10 kernel?? grr.
Hope this helps someone else!
