See:  /var/log/Xorg*log*

Well, that does contain a lot of info but no error, and it doesn't contain what I see on the screen. The last lines on the screen (I cna't scroll up) are
(nautilus:4247): GConf-CRITICAL **: gconf_client_get_string: assertion
'err == NULL || *err == NULL' failed
(nautilus:4247): Eel-WARNING **: Gconf  error:
Failed to contact configuration server: some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking to ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-giulio/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no gconfd located: Permission denied 2: IOR file '/tmp/gconfd-giulio/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no gconfd located: Permission denied)
I will look at that web page and into the gconfd thing, but any
suggestion is very much appreciated.
