A good way to troubleshoot gnopernicus, or an graphical application, is 
to start it from the gnome terminal.  Debugging messages will be 
displayed in the terminal window when it starts up, and the error 
messages may give you some indication of why it is not working.  
Unfortunately, there are always a lot of debugging messages even when it 
is working correctly.
