Thank you Michael. That fixed it. I have the display back. All my plugins
are in the plugins/ subdirectory of .gkrellm2, so I renamed it then moved
back only the ones I am using. I have lost my list of stocks I am
watching, but that will be somewhere in the old folder as well, or else I
can re-create the list.
Actually the problem started before I installed the snmp plugin. I had
soime hazy idea that the plugin might fix things, when it is only a
monitor. Whatever the explanation, it is fixed.
Thank you for your patience.
