I'm not one hundred percent sure what you mean by error name, but this
is what I know after some detective work:

KAuth returns DBusError as the error, and this as the error
description that accompanies it:
DBus Backend error: could not contact the helper. Connection error:
Could not get owner of name 'org.kde.auth.kreminder': no such name.
Message error: Cannot launch daemon, file not found or permissions
