i got xubuntu 8.10 installed on my ibook g3 [900mhz 128mb]

i used guides in this forum to get passed the cd drive problems and video issues, but once booted, only menus will display. i have the desktop fine and any drop down menus, but when i click to open something the console/application just flashes on screen for about 2 seconds then dissappears.

any pointers?

thanks
dan
