the distro is mandy 8.2 running fluxbox....I think it might be a path problem but I'm not 4 sure.
I don't c nothing wrong with the permissions and i don't get error messages. If I log in as root gaim shows up in the menu. When I'm logged as regular user it's not there, I have to go into shell and use /usr/bin/gaim
