Unknown error message!!!! GCONF or something?


Hello,

Well, I have mandrake 10.1 installed and I am using KDE. When I want to use some of the applications like "CD Properties", it shows this error:

I can't guarantee anything, but try removing /tmp/gconfd-alireza and try again.

rm -rf /tmp/gconfd-alireza

FC13

I get the same problem. I just installed FC13, and an app that was running fine in FC12 will no longer run. I get this same message.
