no animation in gnome, dolphin not working in KDE

i have installed suse 11.2
i installed first with KDE, i hav problem with “Dolphin” that it doesn’t open on first try and sometime i hav to open it 6-7 times then “dolphin” window appear.

same is the problem with “ark”, the compression utility. when i double click a compressed file, it doesn’t open. when i open “ark” seperately, it runs smoothly.

so i switched over to GNOME. everything is fine in GNOME except that the animation and effects doesn’t run on it. when i click the check box ‘use animation’, the animation are applied for 2 seconds only then automatically turns off.

What happens if you open a terminal and type: dolphin

post the result
