Description Zack Cerza 2004-09-23 22:13:40 UTC
Description of problem:
After enabling accessibility, I see this error on startup of any GNOME

"Accessibility: failed to find module 'libatk-bridge' which is needed
to make this application accessible"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
x86_64: Always
i386: Never

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ gconftool-2 -t boolean -s /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true
2. $ gedit
Actual results:
Bonobo accessibility support initialized
GTK Accessibility Module initialized

(gedit:12637): Gnome-WARNING **: Accessibility: failed to find module
'libatk-bridge' which is needed to make this application accessible

Expected results:

Additional info:
$ file /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/libatk-bridge.*
/usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/libatk-bridge.a:  current ar archive
/usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/libatk-bridge.la: ASCII English text, with
very long lines
$ ar t /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/libatk-bridge.a

It looks like a libtool issue. Maybe a rebuild with a newer libtool
will suffice; maybe at-spi's libtool-fu itself needs an upgrade.

Okay, I removed some redundant stuff from the spec file and we now
(magically!) the .so seems to pop out the other end correctly.

Fingers crossed :-)
