Re: gnome testers wanted?

Ok, new potato install on a Sun U10.

Install debs to test:

 dpkg -i *.deb  # from source below

gives unresolved dependancies, no problem,
go in to deselect->select->return->accept missing, then install

Ok, you can install them.
Tries some applications, only bug I find is the text displayed in
gnome help browser -> man pages ->
  822-date shows up with header 822\-date
there were some more xx-xx command which showed up with header xx\-xx
instead of xx-xx.
