I'll look into it.

Could you or anyone else installing gnome2 - please check for the location 
of under /opt/gnome2 (not gnome); mine was installed at 
lib/libglade/2.0/  This location is not being picked up by 
ldconfig, so I experienced incomplete dialog boxes.  I've been expecting 
some hollering, but there hasn't been any, so either it's unique to my 
setup or no one went to the capplet for fonts, which is suppose to have a 
widget on the right side.

I have a solution, but need some feedback.
