gtk apps


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!

Mandrake 9.2? You're beta testing, then? The latest stable release from Mandrake would be 9.1

Unless you are keen to get involved in the development of the next version of Mandrake, then I suggest you drop down a version.

For more information on beta testing for Mandrake, head over to:
