Default [SOLVED] Firefox doesn't start with Fluxbox
Hi, all

I installed PCBSD and various applications (among them Firefox) from the installation CD.
Firefox runs perfectly with KDE. However it fails to initialize in Fluxbox.

This is the error:
PC-BSD encountered an error while trying to start bin/firefox
Code:
Gtk-Qt theme engine warning:
  Could not open /proc/25990/cmdline
  This may cause problems for the GNOME window manager
Segmentation fault
Any idea?

I got the exact same message after I installed a kde app (KMyMoney2) from ports. At the same time, KDE crashed when launching which is why I was using fluxbox.

I don't know exactly what resolved the issue, but after googling the error message I installed x11-themes/gtk-qt-engine from ports and then www/firefox from ports. Now everything works fine in both KDE and fluxbox.

(note: hope I didn't commit some kind of sin in doing this but if there is a more official way to fix this problem let me know! Kind of disappointing when kde crashes, thank goodness PC-BSD had the presence of mind to include fluxbox!)

Deinstall the Gtk-Qt theme engine and it should fix it.
