Description of problem:
after a crash in panel applets (modem-lights ,rhn_applet)
i have problems with gnome-desktop
first i cant type properly test because keys need to be pressed 2 secs
before they produce a character.
Also they beep during this process.
These problems are met only for a certain user and only on gnome desktop.
I removed two files in home dir .esd_auth and .ICEauthority
in user's catalogue and the keyboard problem disappeared but
in every startup gnome complains about errors in services and that may
be a problem with themes and sounds etc.
Also says that it will keep trying to load or configure these things in next
1)not sure this apply to usermode package
2)system is running with greek locale
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.connect as **** user to gnome desktop
Actual Results: error messages on startup process
this behaviour looks really weird. In case the problem is still
present, can you please write to me which error messages are
displayed? Maybe that could help me to find me a possible solution. If
this problem isn't actual any more, please let me know so I can close
This problem appeared a long time before...
I remember that i backed up my home directory and delete hiden files
so after that using a step by step "method" i restored my home and the
problem has gone.
From time to time i can see similar (weird) problems in gnome desktop.
These days for example i can open only one gnome-terminal if i try to
open a second one (or even a tab in the first) it opens and stay
"white" without a prompt...
So if i make the mistake to close the first terminal then i have to
reboot in order to open a gnome-terminal.
Maybe someone who takes care of gnome-terminal will help you to
resolve the problem. Reassigning to gnome-terminal.
what kernel are you using?
I had already created a bug
Since the original report is no longer relevent and the second bug is
already being tracked, i'm going to close this one.
