RoadTripDK had trouble on 17 Nov 2006
I just installed evolution from the Novell homepage (evolution 2.6). I can't get the Evolution droplet to work. The Evolution binary is installed in /opt/gnome-2.14/bin/ and I think the droplet may be looking Evolution in /sw/bin/

When I run the command '/opt/gnome-2.14/bin/evolution-start.sh' to determine why Evolution doesn't start, I get the following messages:

$ /opt/gnome-2.14/bin/evolution-start.sh

(evolution-2.6:5663): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "industrial",

Can anyone tell me what is going on here, please?
