Hi,

I'm running pdaxii13 on akita and I'm using the matchbox WM withour rox.

I have a pretty curious behavior of firefox. It will start when using the menu but not when using the desktop icon. Why ??? When you hit the desktop icon, firefox runs for a while then stops suddenly, without a message. I tried to trace this error : but no luck. When I try to use "strace" on firefox-bin it works !!! Also when I plug "strace" on firefox while it -p option while it is still running it works. I'm giving up. If some of you folks could give me a tip, I would be utmostly gratefull.

Best,
Ulutte

PS: some similar problem with korganizer. But here, the program don't start with the menu nor with the desktop icon, only in a terminal. Ideas ???

It is probably Rox choking on a "run action." This happens occasionally on a new ii13 install as far as I can tell. You can edit the icon with a right click and change the "set run action" stuff. I find I generally have to edit xmms too, and load plain old xmms, and not xmms wrapper--otherwise firefox and xmms get confused. your mileage may vary.
