What are the two ways of starting gmixvm? Do you have the same problem
starting (in a terminal) mixvm?

Hmmm... it's a bit difficult to tell, but i have a guess. It could be
one of the gnome daemons looking for a path, or something like that. To
check, could you edit ~/.mdk/gmixvm.config (creating it if necessary)
and ensure that it contains the lines:

Assembler=/usr/bin/mixasm -l %s
Mixasm=/usr/bin/mixasm -l %s
Editor=/usr/bin/xterm -e vi %s

where, in all of them, the paths are to exisiting executables?

Dealing with failure is easy: Work hard to improve. Success is also
easy to handle: You've solved the wrong problem. Work hard to improve.
