I am using version 7.08 and after a bit of research have founf out that it is a gtk 2.10 problem see link.

I followed the fix and with a slight alteration it works.

I edited the startup script and and added two lines of code ater commenting out the old one as follows :-

418#           echo $mfile| sed 's/libgtk-x11-\([0-9]*\)\([0-9]\)00.\([0-9]*\)\|\(.*\)/\1\2\3/g'
419        echo $mfile| sed 's/libgtk-x11-\([0-9]*\)\([0-9]*\)00.\([0-9]*\)\|\(.*\)/\1\2\3/g'

644#    MIN_GTK_VERSION="240"
645    MIN_GTK_VERSION="2040"

The original fix was just missing an opening quote.

Where are you getting your version from?  I believe you can get the
latest rpm from and it installs fine.  7.0.5 I think is it.
