Description Robert Story 2006-05-24 15:34:46 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
Always. Tried existing user (w/ ~/.ddd dir, and new user w/out one).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start ddd
Actual results:
lots of warnings, no colores in ddd

Expected results:
no warnings, colors in ddd.

Additional info:
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?

Comment 2 Robert Story 2006-05-25 16:32:59 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Robert Story 2006-05-26 17:24:37 UTC
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...
