Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192967
x apps can't find colors
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
ddd spews warnings about colors on startup. eg:
Warning: Color name "white" is not defined
(Annoyed? Try 'Edit->Preferences->General->Suppress X Warnings'!)
Warning: Color name "DarkGreen" is not defined
Warning: Color name "red4" is not defined
XPM: ddd.xpm: no color found
Warning: Color name "grey96" is not defined
Unfortunately, the suggested setting (Supress X Warnings) has no effect.
Besides, I _want_ the colors.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. Tried existing user (w/ ~/.ddd dir, and new user w/out one).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start ddd
lots of warnings, no colores in ddd
no warnings, colors in ddd.
I'm usually available in #fedora-ppc as rstory, for questions/testing.
it seems a bug xorg-x11. Do you see this warnings by starting other apps,
for example: xterm, gimp?
I tried xterm and gimp. Nothing from gimp, but xterm did indeed complain:
Warning: Color name "black" is not defined
xterm: Cannot allocate color magenta3
xterm: Cannot allocate color magenta
updated summary and changed component to xorg-x11.
google figured this oen out for me... I had copied xorg.conf from my fc4 system,
and the RGB path has changed. Once I fixed that, colors are now working...
