I have a Dell Inspiron laptop that previously was using various Mandrake
distributions. I decided to try Ubuntu hoary on it and the install went
fine, once I had a good install cd. I kept the /home partition and
mounted that under hoary, but when I log in to Gnome I get an error that
gconfd can't write to the database. I've deleted the .gconf and .gconfd
folders and it still doesn't work. I've verified the permissions on the
folder and chowned it to the right ubuntu user, since the user ids were
different between mandrake and ubuntu. If I delete the afore mentioned
folders, they do get recreated when I log back in, but it doesn't create
any of the subfolder in .gconfd and gives me the error.
Anybody have any idea of what i can delete to make this work? I did
install kubuntu-desktop and KDE 3.4 works find for the most part.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
