a couple of problems I see from the log:
1) you need to install the liberation-ttf fonts.
2) because of all the changes, you'll likely want to copy the new config to ~/.nghost/ and replace your old nghost.conf. Also, delete the file NGhost from ~./nghost/. There have been a number of database changes so you'll want to start fresh with a new database.
3) because you'll be erasing the old database, you'll want to run nscan again and repopulate the db with your media. Make sure that nghost.conf points to the right media locations on your disk.
Most of those event errors are because you don't have the obd plugin loaded, which is acceptable.
The only error that concerns me is:
if the above doesn't fix your problem, let me know and I'll look into these errors a bit more.03/26/2009 18:29:16 EDT:ERROR - Failed to get listbox settings for: media_list_box
03/26/2009 18:29:19 EDT:ERROR - EventSubscriber: fireEvent() - 90:: Error OnUpdate_ either is not found or is not a valid event
The only bug I'm aware of in nghost from svn is regarding nweather/nowplaying screens. nghost may segfault if you go back and forth between those screens.
Let us know if you like the enhancements.
