This is what I have been doing since my first try at gnome circa 2002. Altho in my .xsession I have "exec gnome-session" rather than the full path to the binary. As "kline" it looks for the typical "greeter app", can't find it, and opens a second login screen. Once I'm logged in there, things go totally dead. Finally a pop-up dialog off screen displays what appears to be the contents of ~/.xsession-error. From there, things lock up. As root, I do get my usual menu strips, but empty. When I right-click (to exec an xterm) the applet says that I'm missing a "launcher". I'm out of idears. gary > James > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-gnome > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
