hey, i've been having trouble with my hard disk for a while now. after one of its recent attacks, i had to run fsck on my root and home partitions. now am not able to start gnome. i tried installing xubuntu, but doesn't work in that either. Am running fluxbox for now. Whenever i try opening firefox or nautilus, i get the following errors:

An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for firefox. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.


Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Could not send message to gconf daemon: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus))

PS: fluxbox feels kinda good :guitar:
