Gnome error: OAFIID:GNOME_MainMenu

Since yesterdays updates od openSuse 11 ppc, when i log in, i get the
error message The panel encountered a problem while loading
“OAFIID:GNOME_MainMenu” with the choice to “Delete” or “Chancel”. If i
delete and try to add the panel manually the same happens.

Tried to reinstall several parts of Gnome without success.

Suggestions anyone?

I did stumble over several posts about this on the web, but none of the
suggesetions worked for me as long and they have been rather old. What
triggers that problem?

It seems some update in the last few days have triggered the same
problem for me. I’m running x86_64 version. The Main Menu and Clock
applets are not working, but e.g. System Monitor and Window Lists
applets work as they should.

Hmmm seems as long as you are not on Linux x86_32 you have a seat in the
back row.

I got my applets to work by setting the panel (in Sessions) to not
restart, and killing and restarting gnome-panel in a terminal. After
that, it worked as it should. Have no idea why.

I have the same problem and I resolved by the package downgrade of rpm
hal-0.5.11-8.2 to hal-0.5.11-8.1

I have encountered the identical problem that you raised here in the
Fedora10.
And this problem is resolved after I delete all configuration files
(which are created in openSUSE) pertaining to desktop setting

Could you explain in more detail how you did this? I didn’t see any
options in the Sessions menu (when you restart or log in) for setting
the panel not to restart. Also, what, exactly, do you type in a
Terminal to get the gnome-panel to stop and restart? Thanks.

Has anyone figured out how to solve this yet? I’ve tried killing and
restarting the gnome main menu and it didn’t work. I don’t get a
startup error anymore, but I also can’t put back the gnome-main-menu
without getting an error message. There was apparently a bug filed on
it, but the person who filed the report got it to work and the bug
report has been marked solved.

FYI, I’m running 11.0 on PPC (PowerBook G4).

Still suffering from that problem. There seem to be several solutions it
seems. None of them explained in detail, so i cannot reproduce them. I
need help please.

My computers is experiencing the same type of error on bootup. Recently
installed 11.0 x86_64 with the gnome desk top. The install ran fine for
several weeks. Next I tryed installing vmware to create an windows
environment for autocad, but unable get to the gui booting with xen.
I set that problem aside to work on codec for totem from webpin site,
and the problem seem to follow the next boot up. The error message is
“Panel encountered a problem while loading OAFIID: Gnome_MixerApplet”
Included with the message is a button to delete the panel. I did not
delete the panel, however sound" icon no longer is visible at bottom of
the desktop. Still able to play music and watch dvd’s by adjusting
volume within those applications.

Problem persists with all updates. Yesterday added a new user… and
guess… yes when login them in to Gnome the same error.

So its not about the user account.

Any news about this? Its really annoying as the new menu is much better
than the classic Gnome menu.
