Gnome Menu Icons Missing and Malfunctioning
I have a Red Hat 9.0 installation running kernel-2.4.20-20 and I upgraded it to 2.4.20-30. After the upgrade was complete, it broke the video driver so I re-loaded the nvidia driver by downloading the updated version from their site. Following the changes, the icons in the Gnome menu are broken. If I right-click on an item and go to properties, the icon is showing in the properties window correctly but when I close the window (I'll use the shortcut for DIA as an example) here is the error message I get:
Cannot Save Changes to Launcher
Details: Error writing file 'applications:/Office/redhat-diagrams.desktop': Read-only file system
When I run a locate command on "redhat-diagrams.desktop" the file has permissions of 644 (rw-r--r--) so I think I would be able to modify it.
I've also ran some red-carpet updates today prior to the kernel and nvidia updates and after those completed, the system was still working fine.
In reading around the forums, a lot of time people recommend deleting the .gnome .gnome2 .gconfd and .gconfd2 folders. I've moved them to other locations and had the system recreate the folders... no changes.
I tried turning on another user account and the icons and desktop icons are all broken. The desktop icons are paper and the menu icons aren't showing at all.
I'm running out of options and do not want to re-install. That seems to be the consensus for this error.
Oh yeah, my user only has the menu problem. The desktop icons are fine.
The root user is messed up even more, I have paper icons on the desktop and the menus don't have any icons either.
This has happened to me before on other Red Hat installations and the final solution every time was to re-install. That can't be the only answer.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
