Failed to load image!
Hi everyone,

I have a problem with my new RedHat 9 pc.
Each time I switch on / restart my pc, an error appeared.

'Failed to load image switchdesk.png. Details: file not found'

Please help me to solve this problem. Thank you very much!!

Switchdesk is the program that allows you to switch your desktop environmnet and it seems that it cant find the image that it displays. There are a few ways you could solve this problem. I do not know where RH9 stores the switchdesk.png image, however I would look at your dmesg and try to find out where it is looking for the switchdesk.png image. On my FC4 box I have the switchdesk.png image located


$slocate switchdesk.png

If you can find where RH9 is looking for switchdesk.png, I would grab a copy of the switchdesk.png image from the switchdesk-gui tarball and move it to the appropriate locations.

Otherwise you can try to uninstall and install the switchdesk-gui using yum.
