I have installed xosd-2.2.14-4.fc5 but that doesn't seam to help

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. tpb
2. press e.g. thinkpad sound buttons

Actual results:
No on screen display shows
The error message
Unable to initialize xosd. Running without onsceen display.
is printed to the terminal, from which tpb was launched.

Expected results:

Additional info:
Tested with a Thinkpad R50e,
tpb works on Ubunto so I think my thinkpad model is supported

Greetings. I am taking over maintaining this package for fedora extras. 

I guess from comment #1 this bug can be closed now... I will leave it open for a
few days to confirm the problem is fixed and then close it.
