Silly question, but is dbus running?
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2007-06-03 16:22:42 EDT
Not silly at all, but it seems to be

Comment 3 Christopher Aillon 2007-06-03 16:58:52 EDT
Wait, are you trying to run f-spot as root?
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2007-06-03 17:13:44 EDT
Nope, as myself. I am in the process of backing up my machine with a view to a
fresh install :(
Comment 5 Christopher Aillon 2007-06-03 18:23:57 EDT
I just tried on 3 machines: i686 fresh install of F7, i686 upgrade from F6 to
F7, and x86-64 fresh install of F7 and can't reproduce this.  :-(

Does moving your f-spot directory out of the way help?

cd $HOME/.gnome2
mv f-spot f-spot-backup
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2007-06-04 05:47:58 EDT
opens fine now after doing the mv command! Thanks a heap

Cheers
Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2007-06-04 06:11:39 EDT
Oky, my guess is something got corrupted then in your profile.  Not sure what it
is.  You'll have to redo your tags I guess, so hopefully it's not that big of a
deal.  Closing this one.
