Tomboy won't run on fresh reinstall of Fedora 10

I recently installed F10 and all seems well on the desktop (apart from the instant reboot on hibernate problem - but that's another story). But I can't seem to run Tomboy. Tried yum remove, yum reinstall etc, restart, manually deleting the config files, taking the rpm out of the cache and downloading it again. All to no avail.

Error message on trying to add to panel:
The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:TomboyApplet". Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?
Error message on trying to run from terminal:
[DEBUG]: NoteManager created with note path "/home/j/.tomboy".

The assembly was not found in the Global Assembly Cache, a path listed in the MONO_PATH environment variable, or in the location of the executing assembly (/usr/lib/tomboy).

Anyone know what's wrong? I have the same install on another computer and it all works.

You do not have mono-addins 0.3 installed, as the error message says. The Tomboy package you are using was built with that version of mono-addins, and you need that version installed. I don't know if the reason it is missing is because you have messed with your system or because the Tomboy package is broken on Fedora 10.

I would suggest filing a bug with the Fedora project if your problems continue, so that they can be alerted to the problem and fix it.

thanks sandyarmstrong,
your fix worked a treat! "could not load" may be obvious to some, but I hadn't figured it meant the module wasn't there at all, so the explanation was very helpful. I can only guess mono-addins went missing as a dependency when I removed tomboy, but when I reinstalled tomboy you'd have thought mono-addins would have come back in as a dependency. I hadn't changed much else in the system. Reluctant to file a bug as everything worked OK on my other machine.
