Cardapio crashing on startup

Asked by L Holoubek

I know this problem has been discussed extensively before, but I can't seem to find a working solution. Whenever I reboot my computer, Cardapio asks if I want to delete it from my configuration. I attempted every remedy discussed in the previous threads.

I had a work-around that worked for some time. I discovered that if I first ran the cardapio located in /usr/bin, I could then add it to my panel without errors. Basically, I edited the .conf file to delay the Cardapio startup for 10 seconds. I also created a launcher the the "cardapio" file from /usr/bin to run on startup. This seemed to work for a few days, but now I'm encountering more errors. I am sometimes able to get Cardapio to run in the panel, but it is doing some strange things with my panel as well.

I noticed that this problem began occurring after I installed the Faenza icon set-could there be any correlation?

I have tried completely removing and re-installing Cardapio, but that doesn't seem to fix the problem either. Perhaps I'm not getting it totally removed?

Sorry for my lack of expertise-I'm new to linux, but loving it. I love Cardapio as well-simply a great menu replacement solution.

Thanks for the help.

Currnently running Ubuntu 10.10

Hi, and welcome to Linux :)

This question is more fitting for a bug report, but I'll just answer it here. For future reference, though, you can file bugs at . Here is a bug that may be similar to what you were experiencing:

I think what was happening was a so-called "race-condition" between Cardapio and Gnome-Panel. However, since on the latest version of Cardapio there were several speed improvements, can you please run an update and let us know if your problem persists? Then we can figure out the next step...


Can you help with this problem?
