Description of problem:
Epiphany won't start. I get the following message in a popup window.

Bonobo couldn't locate the GNOME_Epiphany_Automation.server file. You
can use bonobo-activation-sysconf to configure the search path for
bonobo server files.

Bonobo version is bonobo-1.0.22-8.1.

File /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/GNOME_Epiphany_Automation.server exists.
I tried running as root

$ bonobo-activation-sysconf --add-directory=/usr/lib/bonobo/servers

but it did not make any difference. I guess if bonobo could not find
its files, a lot of other GNOME components would not be working, so
I'm a bit puzzled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Epiphany


Actual Results:  The popup window is displayed and Epiphany does not

Expected Results:  Epiphany runs.

Can you try if yelp runs? Does logging out or rebooting the system helps?

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 16:22:05 UTC
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

I have no such problem under Fedora Core 3.
