I am running GNOME on my LInux Enterprise Version 4. When I click on an icon to open an application, for exampe, Printer settings. The swirling arrow appears, indicating that the application is loading. Then, nothing pops up. What's up?
Have you tried to start your application from a terminal?
If you type the command to your app at a terminal and it doesn't load, you should at least get an error message. Try this and if you get an error, post it here. That'll help to find out what's going wrong.
