Re: Configuration file / segmentation fault
- I think I've found the readon why gbuffy crashes. I too had the 2
files ~/.gbuffy and ~/GNUStep/Desktop/GBuffy
When I tried to edit any preferences, gbuffy would crash when trying
to save the config.
removing the ~/.gbuffyrc file solved the problem.
If somebudy can confirm this, I should submit a bug report. anyone
know where I can do that ?
