crash when opening launcher properties
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:26 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-panel now crashes when attempting to open the launcher properties dialog.
I noticed this after a new full install and update the other day and have
confirmed it on other up to date RHEL4 Update 3 systems.
Doing a further update against the Dag Wieers repo (which updates the recently
changed freetype libraries among other things fixes the problem).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on the web browser icon in the upper panel (or any other launcher)
2. Select Properties
You are quite correct with your assessment that the problem may be related to
Recently, we pushed out a freetype update that has caused various problems
including your reported problem.
New packages are being QA'd now, and will hopefully go out tomorrow.
