Are you trying to load the brightness or inhibit applets?
Comment 2 Joachim Frieben 2007-05-18 03:34:22 EDT
Not knowingly. The two only applets that I have added to my panel
are the "Network Monitor" and the "CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor"
applets. The brightness applet is not functional on my
"IBM ThinkPad T23" anyway.
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2007-05-18 06:48:34 EDT
Are you running gnome-power-manager?
Comment 4 Joachim Frieben 2007-05-21 09:37:03 EDT
Oh yes, I do. There have been some recent problems with "hal", but
right now, the battery icons is sitting peacefully on my panel,
and nevertheless, ".xsession-errors" still contains the error message
reported earlier.
