Ok, after playing around for a while, I have found that if I remove the module
acx from the kernel, then I can run kile.
If I type:
$ sudo modprobe -a acx
then kile runs (Yay!)
This probably means that:
This bug could be moved elsewhere (but I'm not sure where. acx? or is it still
a kile bug?)
The severity might need to be changed
Now I just need to work out how to stop acx from starting in the first place.
(I'd already commented out acx in /etc/modules but it still seemed to be
starting up somewhere else. I don't know enough to find out where). If I end
/etc/modules with the lines:
Then the system is usable and I can use kile.
Thanks to Lisandro for suggestions and for everyone else who has taken time
