Need help fixing gnome ( post #1)
I'm got this error right after logging in:
"An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for gnome_segv. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly"
There is another window open behind it, but it does not allow me to bring it forward. I also can't click on the "OK" to close the error message window.
I haven't a clue what I was doing to cause this. I know I did and was using Firefox and Thunderbird.
So I uninstalled GNOME using Apt and reinstalled GNOME but it doesn't come up on the list of Desktops.
I got this error when I ran gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome:
Failure listing entries in `/desktop/gnome': Failed to contact configuration ser ver; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBi t, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/p
rojects/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-sonia/lock/ ior' not opened successfully, no gconfd located: No such file or directory 2: IO R file '/tmp/gconfd-sonia/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no gconfd located: No such file or directory)
Thanks..from another Newbie
I tried using KDE but I didn't find it to user friendly
