GNOME setting daemon error on Slackware.

It's me again.

Now I'm on Slackware 9.1, and when running GNOME the startup "splash intro" freezes at "Nautilus" and I get the error message "Error starting GNOME setting daemon". It warns that some features like sound, background, themes etc. might not work. Then it just halts there. I can move my mouse and close the error alert box, but nothing else happens. I can also click the startup splash away, and then I'm alone with the gray X background . CTRL+ALT+Backspace.

I'm not asking:

But rather:
Where's the problem? I just installed GNOME, so which package was, maybe, corrupted? Or?

That's why I didn't post on "Newbie".

I don't enjoy the default window manager that much. I thought it might have been cool to try out GNOME - 100% GNU's Not Unix desktop environment.

Before you ask, I'll point out that I'm using ZipSlack, so I have a "X window system from scratch". I FTPed about 3 hours before I finally got my X to work. It was always complaining some missing libsed or libxslt or libaudiofile or libgtk. And then I FTPed again. And "installpkged".

Maybe I'm missing some package. I downloaded (almost) the whole GNOME ftp directory ( + some packages it whined about. I also browsed the whole website for packages and libraries GNOME might require, without any success. I couldn't find any installation help.


(That signature... yep, I'm on Win98 right now!)
