3ddesk daemon driving me mad [Solved! :)]
I was really thrilled with 3ddesk up until an hour ago. I had it installed for a few weeks, and just recently got some more convenient hotkeys and mouse gestures set up. Then, out of the blue, I restart the X server and it now refuses to load.
3ddesk Attempting to start 3ddesktop server. Daemon started. Run 3ddesk to activate. Server not found after waiting 5 seconds. Could not find server. Try starting manually (3ddeskd)
Now I expected some difficulties trying to get certain software to run when I installed linux, but I didn't count on *losing* functionality for an arbitrary reason after it has already been working - isn't that against the rules? Any help would be appreciated.

 Ok, after reading online about an obscure dependency on an nvidia driver component, I tried reinstalling nvidia. I got a message about not being able to restore a symbolic link named something along the lines of libGL.so.1. Then I reinstalled, booted into X, and 3ddesktop worked flawlessly. Although I kind of wish I was smart enough to remember to save my 3ddesktop.conf file before uninstalling/reinstalling 3ddesk's rpm .\"Nifty News Fifty: When news breaks, we give you the pieces.\" - Sluggy Freelance
