Re: Configuration Info Problem

This message pops up when starting KDE GUI:

"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 - 2: Failed to convert IOR '' to an object reference)"

I've visited the above link but it wasn't helpful to me, a newbie.
Did a locate for orbit and ior, read the README's, TODO's,etc. No help, didn't even know what was talked about.
Some programs no longer work in KDE.
I haven't a clue how to resolve this error message.  Please help.

PS-Using kernel image 2.6.8-2-686 and KDE version 3.3.2.

I am subscribed to the list (although I don't mind CC's). Since I hope to upgrade from woody to sarge and also try out a 2.6 kernel, I was hoping to see the answer to this problem just in case I also run into it. I like to use KDE and am looking forward to the upgraded KDE in sarge. I also hope to get my sound system working so that I can use ogle. I anticipate that the new KDE might be much more helpful.

Anyway, I must have missed the response and would like to have it, too!
