I installed the package of the Generic instant messenger application
(Pidgin)on xfce desktop. It seems to work fine, but in the log it gives
this message text.
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.
1: IOR file '/var/tmp/gconfd-aiza/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no
gconfd located: No such file or directory
2: IOR file '/var/tmp/gconfd-aiza/lock/ior' not opened successfully, no
gconfd located: No such file or directory)
Inspection shows that the directory '/var/tmp/gconfd-aiza/lock/' is
present, but its empty. Aiza in this case is the user name.
There is also in empty directory '/var/tmp/orbit-aiza'.
The package install of the word processing application Abiword also
generates this same error message, but it is displayed as a startup
error popup window when Abiword is launched from the xfce menu.
I tried creating am empty 'ior' file but that had no effect.
Question is: How can I correct this error?
