Gnome Ports

perhaps this isn't the right NG/ML. But...

the GTK/Gnome/XFCE contribution ports
to the CygWin X do not appear to be very publicized/documented/supported.

I'd like to have more clarity about where packages are stored
(i.e. the URLs tio be added in CygWin setup.exe), how to install them,
which packages need to be installed to make what, and why I got some bugs/errors,
I mean, gconfd seems to have problems and it writes lots of errors in the Windows Event Log
like this:

Error setting value for `/apps/gtranslator/informations/last_run_on': Unable to store a value at key '/apps/gtranslator/informations/last_run_on', as the configuration server has no writable databases. There are some common causes of this problem: 1) your configuration path file /etc/gconf/2/path doesn't contain any databases or wasn't found 2) somehow we mistakenly created two gconfd processes 3) your operating system is misconfigured so NFS file locking doesn't work in your home directory or 4) your NFS client machine crashed and didn't properly notify the server on reboot that file locks should be dropped. If you have two gconfd processes (or had two at the time the second was launched), logging out, killing all copies of gconfd, and logging back in may help. If you have stale locks, remove ~/.gconf*/*lock. Perhaps the problem is that you attempted to use GConf from two machines at once, and ORBit still has its default configuration that prevents remote CORBA connections - put "ORBIIOPIPv4=1" in /etc/orbitrc. As always, check the user.* syslog for details on problems gconfd encountered. There can only be one gconfd per home directory, and it must own a lockfile in ~/.gconfd and also lockfiles in individual storage locations such as ~/.gconf.

Thanks to anybady who will help
