When I run kile I get the message:

QStatusBar::insertWidget: Index out of range (4), appending widget

and I am not able to compile from Kile. While I press pdfLatex inside Kile, it freezes. What can I do to debug/fix this? I am using SuSE Linux 11.4

This question came from our site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems.

Sounds like a bug. I don't know if SuSE has a bug tracking system, but if so, report a bug, check for updates, and you could also ask on a more SUSE (or possibly KDE) specific forum. – Faheem Mitha Apr 5 '11 at 11:01

This is a bug in Kile and you should probably report it as a bug over here (assuming it isn't already fixed).

The bug stems from addressing a non-existing widget in an array.
