Since I upgraded to Ubuntu Karmic (fresh install from disc), I haven't been able to launch the system monitor. Nothing happens if I launch it via the Applications menu on the top. If I try to launch it via the terminal, I get this output:

sirupsen@puter:~$ gnome-system-monitor

** (gnome-system-monitor:13845): WARNING **: SELinux was found but is not enabled.

GLib-GObject-ERROR **: Attempt to add property GtkMenuBar::local to class after it was derived

Does anyone have any idea of what I could do to fix this, so I would be able to use the system monitor again?

This may help:

You can try changing the theme and (if enabled) disabling the global menu bar.
