Browser Errors
« on: May 25, 2008, 12:05:46 pm »

I installed Firefox from pkg manager. When I run Firefox I get:
 firefox
GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details -  2: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-myname/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no gconfd located: No such file or directory)
 
Firefox runs but I can't install any Add-ons or plug-ins

When I run Opera I get these errors:
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

Any ideas?
All help appreciated!

Thanks

Just my, newb's opinion
I had exactly the same troubles with Zenwalk 5.0 when I installed Opera. Seems like you are missing JRE and some other library (QT maybe?). But in my case installing QT didn't help. Perhaps the distro installation was somehow damaged?

Try to install JRE and QT and see if Opera loads.

It'd be interesting for others to know what have you done to cope with the errors? Just to share experience

I am running VectorLinux-5.9 Light.
I fixed the Opera errors by following the advice of "fuelinux"
here
I ended up re-installing VL Light because of other mistakes I made.
I posted my trial and errors on
my blog
