    Bizarre galeon problem


    I have SuSE 8.2 up and running well, since I gave up on trying to install radeon 9800 drivers.

    My palm pilot works, Ximian Evolution kicks butt, and overall I am satisfied with the software packages.

    However, there remains one problem.

    I usually use Konqueror as a web browser, but every other program that has a link to the net (like news feeds from Ximian for example) uses Galeon.

    This would be fine, but when I try to load Galeon, it keeps reloading itself. Infinite numbers of times. If I wait and watch, it spawns copy after copy. I can close them all by clicking repeatdely on the close window button. When I click on a link that tries to load Galeon, nothing happens.

    I installed with the installation disk from SuSE 8.2 that checked all the dependencies, seemed ok. This is a re-install, and I know with previous installations it did indeed work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for your guys help, it makes a difference

    Mike

    If you try to click a link, wait a bit, and then run "tail ~/.xsession-errors", does it report anything that looks related?

    So far there's "kwin: X_GetProperty(0x800): BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)"


    Hang on let me see if I can get more...


    These came after several iterations of Galeon respawning:

    DWARNING: KDE detected X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) \x09
    Major opcode: \x0e
    WARNING: KDE detected X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) \x09
    Major opcode: \x0e
    WARNING: KDE detected X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) \x09
    Major opcode: \x0e
    aschueler@linux:~> kwin: X_GetProperty(0x800): BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('


    Does this mean anything?

    Ignore those last two lines -- copied by accident a typo

    They don't have with galeon to do, unfortunately.
    I can't say that I know how to get galeon working; you might want to try another browser, like Mozilla or Epiphany.

    I have been using KDE, I actually prefer it over Galeon.

    Mozilla doesnt work at all

    Any idea how to change to default browser that comes up when I click on links in programs? If I can make it KDE, no problem. I tried the gnome configure utility -- set it to KDE, but this still comes up. There seems to be no option in Ximian for changing the default browser.

    Try putting the following in your ~/.htmlviewrc.
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    exec konqueror

    Hmmm...don't seem to have that file.

    Maybe because I am running SuSE?

    For what it's worth, I think I will change to RedHat when the new version comes out, apparently early next year.

    In that case, create the file. I'm not sure that SuSE uses htmlview, but I would be a bit surprised otherwise.
