When I went to install the lastest control-center to resolve the issue using an rpm -Uvh to update or install. Rpm returned that it was already installed. It appears a slightly different version of control-center was installed on my system by Ximian. Here are the steps I used to remove my ximian version and install the lates version to correct the error .
i just installed XD2 and am now having this problem. I installed it correctly and it was working fine. I ran the Red Carpet utility to update the rpms for Ximian Desktop and restarted X. Then i get a popup with that error. I tried what you suggested but it says ill break dependencies. Im thinking that some of the things ill have to remove may be important so does anyone else have any suggestions??
[root@glowbox closer]# rpm -qa control*
[root@glowbox closer]# rpm -ev control-center-18.104.22.168-10.ximian.2
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
control-center is needed by ximian-doorman-1.99.28-0.ximian.4.2
control-center >= 1.4.0 is needed by pygnome-capplet-1.4.2-3.ximian.5
control-center = 22.214.171.124 is needed by control-center-devel-126.96.36.199-10.ximian.2
libcapplet.so.0 is needed by sawfish-1.0.1-9
libcapplet.so.0 is needed by magicdev-0.3.6-6
libcapplet.so.0 is needed by pygnome-capplet-1.4.2-3.ximian.5
libcapplet.so.0 is needed by gtkhtml-1.0.4-2.ximian.1
Originally posted by steversin You need to install the control-center rpm.
I had the exact same problem on RH 8 and now everything is working fine.
I have just installed Mandrake 9.1 and am having the same problem as the other people with the Daemon. However, I am a NEWBIE and I don't know how to install the controll-center rpm (Mandrake already has its own control center I think). Could someone please explain?

What you need to do (in Mandrake 9.1 at least) is startup the Mandrake Control Center, and choose Software Managment. Next, pick RpmDrake and search for the 'GNOME Control Center'-package and install it. (You could also run rpmdrake directly from a terminal).
I just picked up a new, much bigger hard drive, so the first thing I am going to do is install that and reinstall Linux. If my problem goes away with that . . . great! If not, I will try the individual RPM install, as mentioned above.
I installed the same version of linux on my brothers computer without any trouble, so I probably just missed installing something on my computer.
Much like torytappert I simply did a re-install (selecting more options then I did the first time) and this took care of the issue. Most likely the package was simply in one of the areas I neglected last time.
Anyhow, I'm glad the problem is fixed, even if I don't feel any more intelligent for having fixed it.
I had the same problem with gnome on Fedora Core 2 after updating nvidia drivers (using the installer from the nvidia website). Removing the packages control-center and gnome-session (which are interdependent) and reinstalling them using 'yum' fixed the problem perfectly. No idea of the reason for it in the first place though...
