It would appear that on Dec 31, Ric Moore did say:

Well you may not be a guru Ric, But you thought of something I hadn't
considered. Especially since I do install gnucash there would be some
gnome components on my kubuntu systems.

But it doesn't seam that gconf-editor is one of them. If I enter it in a
konsole (intrepid) I get:

-> The program 'gconf-editor' is currently not installed.  You can install
-> it by typing:
-> sudo apt-get install gconf-editor
-> bash: gconf-editor: command not found

And when I poked around inside the directories ~/.gconf, & /etc/gconf
I couldn't find much stuff in there.

But I thank you for responding. You have at least helped me to
eliminate one possible source of the problem.
