What version of the gnome libraries, particularly the gtkhtml library,
do you have installed?

Are there any error messages?  If so, can you send them to us?

BTW, if you're just interested in using rather than developing
GnuCash, you might want to consider sticking to the stable 1.4.x
series.  1.5.0 is a development release, and will have
incompatibilities and bugs, and future 1.5.x releases are likely to
become *more* rather than less buggy, for a time at least.  

At the moment, files from 1.5.x should still work fine with 1.4.x.
