F-Spot fails to load

With a fresh install of Ubuntu 7.04, F-Spot was failing to load from the menu and sat there using CPU cycles heavily and having to issue the following command in terminal

$ killall f-spot

After that i thought I would try run F-Spot from terminal to see what errors there was

$ f-spot

and this was the reoccurring error

Starting new FSpot server
Cant’ get a connection to the dbus. Trying again…

Well I found it was very simple to fix the problem and all that has to be done is this

$ rm -rf ~/.gnome2/f-spot

After that F-Spot started up correctly.
