I had installed gnubiff 2.1.0 as applet in my gnome22.214.171.124 installation and it was running fine. Then I had the crazy idea to upgrade gnubiff to 2.1.1.
So I remove the applet from the panel, compiled 2.1.1 the same way I compiled 2.1.0.
After re-inserting the gnubiff, I got a pop-up window with an error message telling me that the applet had died unexpectately with some choice of delete or not delete from panel. The next box then told me:
The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_gnubiffApllet"
Details: Failed to resolve, or extend '!prefs_key=/apps/panel/profiles/default/applets/applet_10/prefs;background=pixmap:18877231,-1,-1;orient=down;size=x-small;locked_down=false
Does anybody has any hints, how to correct this?
I tried to go back to 2.1.0 of gnubiff, unfortunately, now I get the same message there, which lets me believe I need to reset something somewhere in the general gnome panel/applet area. I removed all the entried ~/.gconf which belonged to those gnubiff applets, but no luck.
Thanks and cheers,
does it help to remove gnubiff from the panel, then restart gnome and add gnubiff to the panel again?
CU Robert :-)
I have this same problem... and no, it doesn't help to restart gnome. I've got gnubiff installed in a nonstandard location. I posted my problem to the Support Requests tracker...
