confused   Problem with Sword-1.6.0 and Xiphos-3.1.1 on CentOS/Gnome
I'm seeking the proper forum for fielding problems with pre-built packages, specifically Sword-1.6.0, Xiphos-3.1.1 and LibCLucene-0.9.16 for CentOS 5 with Gnome desktop.

I found the RHEL5 rpm's for Sword, Xiphos, and LibCLucene at RPMFind. They installed without error or complaint. Xiphos started as expected with the dialog to install modules. I installed the KJV bible from the crosswire repository and the Xiphos main window displayed as expected. So far, so good.

The issue I experience is there is no text showing where the bible text should be showing, in fact, there is no text in any of the xiphos text boxes. When I click the book, chapter or verse navigation controls, it causes several instances of my file browser (Nautilus) to open. Every option I set or reset in xiphos causes 3 or more instances of nautilus to open. And still no text is displayed in any of the text boxes.

Any ideas or suggestions for what to do?

Your assistance or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
