Well, I finally got this fixed, after hours of work. I'm on Ubuntu 7.10. My problem was simple: _SYSTEM_ also needs to be caps. I used KRename for this, by the way, so if that's helpful bea it in mind.
Well, you can have KDE apps in GNOME and vice-verse. Just means I had to have some of the KDE libs. Of course, I need that for Amarok as well, and that's a must-have app. It was simply a matter of searching for renaming programs in Synaptic.
