problem with gconf


Hello!

After a few installations (like new version of nautilus,gaim,etc) on my gentoo box i face the following problem:

The submenu "Applications" of the gnome menu is lost. Diging in my log files i see the following:

Aug 17 16:51:49 [gconfd (lupus-11550)] starting (version 2.10.0), pid 11550 user 'lupus'
Aug 17 16:51:49 [gconfd (lupus-11550)] Resolved address "xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory" to a read-only configuration source at position 0
Aug 17 16:51:49 [gconfd (lupus-11550)] Resolved address "xml:readwrite:/home/lupus//.gconf" to a writable configuration source at position 1
Aug 17 16:51:49 [gconfd (lupus-11550)] Resolved address "xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" to a read-only configuration source at position 2
Aug 17 16:52:02 [gconfd (lupus-11550)] Resolved address "xml:readwrite:/home/lupus//.gconf" to a writable configuration source at position 0


I reemerged the gconf but the problem remains.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hmm, I would imagine that reemerging the program wouldn't get rid of your settings. If you look at that list of files, they are all configuration / personal files. Try removing them (or rename / back them up) then reemerging gconf. If no configuration files are present, it is likely that the new gconf will just create default ones.

What about manually editing those files? I'm sure they are fairly standard / easy to understand menu items, maybe you can try to resolve the address issues it seems to be having trouble with?
That's weird that removing basically all traces and re-emerging still gave the same problem
