This weekend I reinstalled and I came across two little annoying problem in gnome. The first one is with the weather applet, Canada is out of the location list, as well as Europe and USA except Alaska. How do I get Canada back on the list? I tried deleting the cache and then re-installing gnome-applets but it didn't change anything.
The other problem is with the netspeed applet (not part of gnome-applet but available thru pacman). It won't even load. I have to know my download/upload speed!!!!!! lol
Anyway, I'm sure it's nothing serious because it used to work just fine, but I'd be glad if someone could fix those.

No manual entry for women

I had a problem with the weather applet too and there is a topic talking about it here http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … ht=weather (basically you have to edit an xml file).
I don't know about your other problem though, sorry.
