I had just gotten BOINC all setup and working on Kubuntu 16.04, had graphics working as well. I must have done something to mess it up because now the manager will not load. When I launch Boinc Manager the icon shows on the taskbar for a few seconds then drops out. The client seems to be running because all cores are at 100% as they normally are when its running, and TOP does show 4 seti processes running. If I run boinc from a console I do see two errors. One says data directory not found, and the other is a GPU not found error. But again, all was working perfect for several days.

Here is what I see when I run from a console.

I have searched the forums some, but have not found anything that pointed to my particular issue.

I welcome any input!

KInd of a puzzle, if you see 4 Seti jobs running. Maybe your manager is looking in the wrong place. No other data directories of BOINC lurking?.

I took that snapshot after I killed all of the boinc and seti tasks. That error does not show up when them running, I do however get a bind error because the client is already running. Almost seems like a permissions issue somehow but I am not sure what.

The log you posted is the client startup log and you are starting it in your home directory instead of the BOINC data directory. If you want to start the manager you need to use the menu shortcut which starts the manager in the correct directory. Alternatively you can try to start "boincmgr" on the commandline not "boinc".
