Idesk !?


Hello all,

I have this annoying problem with idesk; it won't display any icons.

(I'm running fluxbox 0.9.6pre1 and mandrake 9.1)

I have installed the idesk-0.5.5 mandrake cooker rpm (might be faulty, anyone who has been successfull with this rpm, please let me know), have followed the instructions at the idesk homepage and added a script called .ideskfix:

sleep 3
idesk&

then did chmod 777 .ideskfix

then I edited .xsession to look like this:

/home/me/.ideskfix&

exec fluxbox

(credit for this script goes to Mark Robineau)


But still no icons are displayed!

When I run idesk from console I get the following error-message:

Can't load: /home/you/.idesktop/home.png bailing -- Home
Check to see if the image and path to image is valid
Can't load: /home/you/.idesktop/home.png bailing -- Home
Check to see if the image and path to image is valid
Segmentation fault

However, this is not my home path and not the image I'm trying to display! It seems to be the example path and image as of the idesk home page...

Ok, any help would really be appreciated!!! TNX
Rickard
