Bouncing icon... but no application
I've recently installed Krusader and KXML but can't start either of them.
I'm using Suse 9.2 and installed the rpms for both apps through YAST. When I click try to open the apps through the menu (utilities/more programs/krusader for instance) I just get a bouncing icon for a while and then nothing.
I'm really new to Linux and not much more than an end-user to be honest so I've got a whole bunch of questions (some of which might make sense).
How do I go about debugging this application? What is going on? What kind of things prevent applications from starting? Is this a recognised phenomenon? With a known workaround?
Any help greatly appreciated.
