gtk apps


Hi:

Well, I am using Mandrake 9.2, and it seems somehow my gtk is screwed up. Whenever I open up gtk menus like the file browser in xmms or mplayer, the bloody apps crash. However they're quite usable if you add files by drag & drop in xmms's playlist, or use the playlist manager in mplayer (not 'file/open')...
So the menus look weird too. They have blue lines under the directories.
Anyways, when I run the apps under Gnome, they work fine, but they always crash under kde. So i am convinced I have to change the gtk setting somehow, but I don't know how....It really bugs me cause I don't use Gnome much at all...
Evoultion and gimp like to crash because of this too..

Any help on how to remedy this problem would be sincerely appreciated!

Thanks...

9.2 is a beta, so maybe check the known bugs, and also make sure your download and burning was without error.
Did you just install 9.2 or have you changed anything?

Well, I burnt and installed the os, so i'm pretty sure the downloading and burning went ok
I know it's a beta, but I should be able to fix the problem, I mean the apps work in Gnome, but not in KDE. I am certain it is a gtk configuration within kde, but i just don't know how to fix it....arghh

Is this in the Galaxy theme?
Are you settings some kind of option which is to try and apply the selected KDE theme to non-KDE/Qt apps?

Have you turned off the Network service? Dont.
Try running the apps from a command line to see any errors.
