Hi. There's a problem with the CAPSconference client on linux such that 
after the installation and running it once, the next time it will complain.

After installing and following the instructions and have successfully 
logged in once and exited:

- there should be a .caps directory created in the personal homedir;

- parallel to the capsclient script there's a GuiClient directory

copy or simlink the directories under GuiClient/caps, i.e.

   pedronis at theraft:~/Europython/CAPSconference/GuiClient/caps$ ls
   config  config.apps  local  test

to the ~/.caps directory

   pedronis at theraft:~/.caps$ ls
   config  config.apps  local  prefs  test

prefs should have already been there after the first run.

regards, Samuele Pedroni.
