i'm not sure whether i'm allowed to post on this newsgroup as it seems 
LFS-developper oriented, anyways... ;-)
i recently installed gnome-2.8, one after LFS-5.1 in /usr, the other 
after LFS-6.0 in /opt/gnome-2.8
the latter suffers from the same problem, my .xsession-error reports 
many unabilities to open the pixmaps. but there's more:
when opening theme-manager, libglade complains of not finding, though it i checked it is in 
the consequence is theme-manager launches, but when trying to see theme 
details, the "window" section is missing but controls and icons are here!
hpe this will help
