It shouldn't need to be run as root. My guess is something related to python or GTK is not in your user path. Maybe one of the more experienced users can tell you how to troubleshoot that.
Do you run kde? You might want to take a look at museek. It looks great in kde and is being more actively developed afaik. Also gets away from the pyGTK errors that seem common with nicotine.
EDIT/I see now you are running icewm.Guess the coffee hadn't kicked in. It looks like museek isn't being as actively developed as I thought. No changes for nearly a year.

Possibly. This link explains how to put something in your path.

Can you give the output of "echo $PATH"?

When I said my guess was a path problem maybe the word "guess" should have been capitalized.
I was basing this on the idea that the problem only shows up when running as user.
Does it run as root without the deprecation warning? That script (nicotine_glade.py) always threw a bunch of warnings when I ran nicotine. They weren't fatal errors.
You could try reinstalling or doing a different type of install. If you used an RPM maybe try a tarball?
If you do reinstall make sure the .nicotine directory is cleaned up in your home folder. The only thing you will want to save is the config file from that directory.

Sorry gnoteb, this is way out of my depth. What follows is pure speculation on my part.
The deprecation warnings are just warnings. Nothing there says fatal or critical. Maybe some of the script used is a little old.You are able to run as root so it looks like it is still usable.The problem could be here;

This part may need root priviledges. Really guessing here, I have no idea what SCIM is.

Hopefully there is enough misinformation here to compel a response from someone.

Thanks alot for trying Muddywaters (great artist btw!), really appreciate it!

SCIM is for typing with other 'typesets' like korean and chinese. I dont think that needs root privileges as leafpad and gaim for instance loads in user mode..

I also need to log in as root to modify the files d/led from nicotine..

I very much doubt that it's impossible. I have installed nicotine in Slackware and Mepis with no problem but am now using museek. A warning if you go this route; museek is not the easiest thing to install and in the end I may have been a little lucky.

Many users have path trouble when installing the java filesharing applications. Not sure if the same thing can happen with applications written in python. Try typing 'python' in a terminal to see if it runs as a normal user.

How did you install this? Was it in some mandriva repository or did you get it in some non-rpm form? Did you force the install in any way?

Go to the hidden nicotine directory in your home directory. If you 'ls -al' the files inside should look something like;
rw-r--r-- <your login name> users
My theory here is nicotine may have trouble reading the config file.

If you have been a longtime soulseek user this must be very frustrating. And well... ^^^BUMP^^^
