Hi.  I haven't had any real problems getting Gentoo's gnome up and
running with Gnopernicus.  You have to uncheck the "lsave session on log
out" option in sessions or you will have multiple copies of Gnopernicus
running, but it's not a problem.  Also, rm ~/gnome2/session before you
try to log in again.
Do you have any docs with Gentoo specific info for setting up Gnome
accessibility?

It looks like something in Gentoo breaks accessibility in Mozilla 1.6.
The Mozilla 1.6 on my Debian box does have accessibility, so I believe
my problem has something to do with the ebuild script.  I'll try
building from source instead of the ebuild and see if I can get it
working.  Is mozilla-source-1.6.tar.bz2 in /usr/portage/distfiles
official Mozilla source or a Gentoo modified version?

Thanks in advance.
          Kenny

I don't know if this applies to just gnome stuff, or other packages like mozilla etc. Maybe one of the gnome accessibility folks can answer this here?
