Re: GNOME and Firefox not working on latest unstable

Hello All,
 the problem was related to libntfs9 and libntfs-gnomevfs: basically I had a problem with the libntfs.conf file and it involved GNOME as well. 

Renaming libntfs.conf and running:

apt-get install --reinstall libntfs9 libntfs-gnomevfs

fixed the issue.

Thanks Giacomo for your support!

This happened to me as well, and was fixed by the updates today. I don't
know what exactly did the trick, though. I suspect it was either libc or
libntfs, which had left a bogus /etc/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libntfs.conf (a
directory instead of a configuration file), which I had to fix by hand after
seeing the error issued by dpkg. It is really infrequent, but sometimes
"unstable" lives up to its name :)
