I've also posted recently about gdm hanging after upgrading to heron. i've also found that when using another display manager, such as kde or fluxbox, i can't run any gnome apps at all. when i say gnome apps, i mean just about anything that doesnt start with a K- firefox, gnome-terminal being two examples. Konqueror runs as does Konsole.
any ideas where i can look to try and figure out what is going on? I tail -f syslog as i launch these apps but don't see anything
Do I perhaps need to reinstall gtk?
your help very much appreciated
