Re: Galeon not working

I solved it.

When running an executable, the session scans through the existing
paths.  On my system (and I'd gather everyone elses), the path
"/usr/local/bin" comes before "/usr/bin".  This means that when I run
"galeon", I'm really running "/usr/local/bin/galeon".  This is because I
have a broken source build of galeon 1.3.x installed on my system.  So,
I must specifically launch "/usr/bin/galeon" in order to run the galeon
that comes with phoebe.
