Lucky is right. You did mention you were using a remaster in your second post, but did not mention that you were using a converted extension until your last one. I should have insisted on you using a DSL release when you first said you were using a remaster, but I was distracted by my own issue of running k3b. It would save a lot of time for you and others before reporting problems to follow the two things Lucky mentioned in his above post. And not only that but to also say if you are running DSL as embedded, toram, livecd mode, etc.
See if the extension works in plain live cd mode if you are having problems running in any other manner, and mention that information when reporting. If an extension is having trouble being used in toram or embedded mode but not in regular live mode for instance, knowing that from the get go can save hours of troubleshooting. Also helpful to know is any other extensions that are loaded, even if you do not think they are part of the issue. The more homework done, the quicker a solution can be found.
One beauty of DSL is it is easy to remaster, create or convert extensions, strip extensions or add to them, and so on. Like any distro we are free to do with it what we wish. But if our remaster or converted extensions break, guess what? We get to keep both pieces. I have only made one remaster myself - I added XFree and a couple other things - but I sure have bungled my live system a time or two making or tweaking extensions, especially early on.
First get some sleep, and then try the standard k3b.dsl with a standard DSL release, preferably in live cd mode, and let us know how it goes. Heading off to work now so I will check back this afternoon. Have a good day.
