Problem with opening apps using etoile

Mark Marszal
Hi,

I am quite new to gnustep and etoile altogether .  I am running an amd64
system and unmasked all gnustep and etoile dependencies.

My main problem is when i open an app using the openapp command, the
dock will show up, but the menu wont show.
Clicking on the dock shows nothing, double clicking quickly shows the
menu at the top of my screen, but fades out right away.

I should mention that running any application worked prior to installing
etoile.  Upon opening ProjectCenter, i have this in my terminal:

mark@uberhost ~ $ openapp ProjectCenter
2008-03-08 13:58:42.258 ProjectCenter[11332] Unknown time zone name `PST'.
2008-03-08 13:58:42.258 ProjectCenter[11332] Using time zone with
absolute offset 0.

2008-03-08 13:58:42.333 ProjectCenter[11332] WARNING: Failed to retrieve

and trying to kill it with ctr+c i get additionally:

^C2008-03-08 14:03:34.148 ProjectCenter[11332] File NSView.m: 473. In
[GSBackendWindowDecorationView -initWithFrame:] given negative height

2008-03-08 14:03:34.149 ProjectCenter[11332] File NSView.m: 1065. In
[GSBackendWindowDecorationView -setFrame:] given negative height


it doesnt actually close projectcenter, so i have to kill the terminal
to get back to my desktop.
This is all using etoile 0.2 and all unmasked packages in the amd64 tree.

Is there any more info you need? or should i just wait for a future
release as gnustep is still hardmasked on amd64.

Thanks for you help

-Mark

I vaguely recall from the last time I played with Etoile that the menu
server would only work inconsistently.

Then the problem is with Etoile.  Etoile 0.3 is probably not too far
away.

If you are using bash, try ctl-z then 'kill %1' to kill the app without
losing the terminal (if you are unfamiliar with 'kill', try 'help kill'
or 'man kill').

BTW, it looks like a bunch of gnustep apps should go stable on amd64 in
the near future:

Best,
