I'm using 2 QT applications that sometimes act up; Restarting X11 fixes the problem (until it returns randomly)
Additional Info: I'm using E18 (Enlightenment) Desktop Environment.
Terminal output gives me nothing while the problem is occurring (i.e. the applications take long to start):
$ dolphin Object::connect: No such signal org::freedesktop::UPower::DeviceAdded(QDBusObjectPath) Object::connect: No such signal org::freedesktop::UPower::DeviceRemoved(QDBusObjectPath) dolphin(1800)/kdecore (K*TimeZone*): KSystemTimeZones: ktimezoned initialize() D-Bus call failed: "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." dolphin(1800) KSambaSharePrivate::findSmbConf: KSambaShare: Could not find smb.conf!
The 2 applications in question are Krita and Dolphin
To name the issue both are slow at starting up (Above terminal output was from dolphin while it took a full minute to open up)
Dolphin sometimes seems to freeze up, haven't determined what exactly causes it.
I decided to sniff around a little bit, and found out that the problem at one point occurred after I did "open with" in dolphin. However it's not a foolproof replication method (this may have been pure coincidence).
I got this as a hint from terminal.
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave. kbuildsycoca4 running... kbuildsycoca4(2877) KConfigGroup::readXdgListEntry: List entry text/html in "/home/xandis/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list" is not compliant with XDG standard (missing trailing semicolon).
I managed to replicate it somehow by opening a JPEG file with krita (yet to see if this is a reliable method of replication)
When I did that this is what the terminal output said (Unsure if it contains any info or not; Krita's terminal output starts at line 17)

Just a stab in the dark... Does this fix it?
Trying this, my hosts file was empty, and my hostname starts with an uppercase letter. I tried adding my hostname at the end of localhost in hosts.
How the hell did you figure this out as a network settings problem?!

That solved your problem? Yay! Please "Edit" your original post and label it as "[SOLVED]".
This is my favorite Linux problem because it's so easy to spot, it's so easy to fix, and the solution looks COMPLETELY unrelated. It's like magic!
Too early to say it worked yet, but we'll see (If it won't happen again for a while I'll mark as solved)
It seems to have partially worked. This is kind of strange really.
Right now dolphin and krita work fine if executed normally. However if I run them with sudo as a user (for example "sudo -u '#1000' krita") The problem occurs again for the sudoed instance of the program (but not the normal ones)
I actually need that to work since I use a macro keyboard and as the drivers must be run as root I need to tell them to be run by a user. (I use it for dolphin to open folders I frequently visit)
I guess for me it's ok since i've found that I hate dolphin and it's only a matter of time till I go back to thunar, but it's still odd.
I uninstalled dolphin, and I somehow suspect that this error will not occur again without it, but i'll update this thread if it does.
