Re: problems with gnome

Sorry, I`ve mistaken the e-mails.

Anyway, as I told before I`m having trouble with Gnome, as it doesn`t show the panel saying that there`s already a panel running, doesn`t show desktop icons or the main menu. As a palliative method to solve this I`ve been removing files such as .xsession-errors .gtkrc* and killing processes to get the panel functioning back.

But I`d like to know how to definitively solve them. Can anyone help me out?

Why do you keep replying to me instead of the list?

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
