Description of problem:
Installed gtk2-2.4.14-1.fc3 and restarted X. Got message
"<b>There was an error loading Default theme</b>
Couldn't recognise the image file format for file
I was thus unable to log into X/GDM. Looged into CLI, removed
gtk2-2.4.14-1.fc3 with 'rpm -e gtk2-2.4.14-1.fc3
gtk2-devel-2.4.14-1.fc3 --nodeps'. Rebuilt gtk2 and reinstalled.
Restarted X and problem was gone.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Restart X
3. Find oneself unable to log in,except through CLI
Actual Results: Unable to log into X/GDM
Expected Results: Install gtk2-2.4.14-1.fc3. Restart X. Able to log
into X/GDM without any problems
Some guy who had a similar problem posted a message at
Another guy from whom I got the idea for the solution posted a message
except as opposed to the guy in the last message, when I did 'rpm -qa
| grep gtk2' I only found one version of gtk2 installed. Even though I
managed to fix it, it does appear to be a bug of some description.
Is the problem restricted to gdm, or does it affect all gtk
Can log in in textmode and do a manual startx ?
cat /etc/gtk-2.0/*-redhat-linux-gnu/gdk-pixbuf.loaders | grep png
report after installing 2.4.14-1.fc3 ?
No response, closing.
