Re: Orca which version of python-orbit is to be used with ?

That seems to indicate that gnome-panel isn't running, and thus you're
not going to get the applications menu (Alt+F1) or other things that the
panel provides.  

You might try running gnome-panel from a terminal window to see where it
is complaining.  At this point, however, we're getting beyond the realm
of orca and accessibility and jumping into working with the core
desktop.  We can try to help, but there might be more appropriate
discussions lists for that kind of thing.

No, just the ps|fgrep process.

This sounds like the panel(s) are not starting for some reason.  If you
do a "ps -elf | grep gnome-panel", do you see any processes?

I used to be able to press left-control-alt-tab to jump between top panel,
desktop and botom panel. It now seem to be stuck on desktop.
I also cannot start a program by pressing alt-f2 and do not get the dialog
for entering an appliction name.
Alt-f1 used to give me a kind of a menu with applications. I do not get
this either.
I suppose It must be some incompatibility.
Any ideas?

Hi Willem:

You should be working with GNOME 2.14, which (I believe) includes
PyORBit 2.14.0.  The "orbit-io-thread" stuff is needed to help prevent
hangs, and was added in PyORBit 2.13.0, I believe.

Hope this helps,

What is the full version number of the python-orbit module that is
compatible with the current CVS version of Orca?
I also get:
import atspi
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/orca/", line 48, in
TypeError: ORB_init() takes no keyword arguments

Any ideas?
TIA, Willem
