But... are you using IceWM or KDE? Some KDE applications won't open in IceWM, since KDE uses more complex window decorations and so on. I think you're using KDE (because of the busy cursor). Probably the application is faulty. I would recommend you to open a Konsole or an XConsole and try opening the program from the graphic console. There you will see if it's giving errors.

haha, i would open Konsole, but it's one of the programs that do that. Everything i try to open in KDE won't open up.

I am using IceWM to post this message (because i can't open a webbrowser in KDE)
