Unhappy Problem loggin in GNome Env. on Red Hat 9


Hi,
I am a newbie to the linux world.
I am having Red Hat 9 installed on my Compaq Presario machine and the desktop is Gnome.

Few days back while logging into Linux, it threw few error messages and after that I saw few items that I had customised were missing from my Panel. On minimzing any window, it doesn't appear at the panel. Also the composer window while replying to a mail in my Ximian Evolution mail didn't appear.

The Error message that I get are following:-

1.) The Panel encountered a Problem while loading " OAFIID:GNOME_PagerApplet"
Details: Unknown COBRA exception id: 'IDL mg.org/COBRA/INV_OBJREF:1.0'
Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?

I had to press "Don't delete" several times on the same error message.

2.) There was an error starting the GNOME setting Daeon.
Somethings such as themes, sounds or background settings may not work correctly. The setting Daemon restarted too many times. GNOME will try to restart the setting daemon next time you log in .

Even after logging in several times, result is same. though once all menus in the panel appeared correctly.

Could you plz guide me on what do I need to do here?

Regards.

Then do an
rm -rf ~/.gnome*

Before doing this note that it will remove your user configurations you have made to gnome. I have had to do this more thatn once with Red Hat 9.

Thanks,

I have done the same and it's perfect now...!! As you said I had to do abit of customization of the desktop again...but that's no pain.

I also found the sites listed below your signature very useful..especially the O'Relly book CD image.

Thanks and Regards,
Manish.
