Description Rob McMillin 2000-11-26 13:42:06 EST
xmcd 2.6-4 installed on a Guinness (7.0) machine won't start properly.
Instead, it gives the following error:

xmcd Fatal Error:
The app-defaults/XMcd file cannot be located, or is the wrong
version.  A correct version of this file must be present in the
appropriate directory in order for xmcd to run.  Please check
your xmcd installation.

The file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xmcd/app-defaults/XMcd does in fact exist and
is the same file as shipped with the RPM, that is, "rpm -V xmcd" gives no

Running the following command seems to fix this bug:

ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xmcd/app-defaults/XMcd

Other interesting release info:


This is running under the sawfish window manager, BTW.

Also: some of the button icons on the left hand side of the player are missing
(the three checkboxes on the left).

The button icons are missing in the original package.
The app-default file is fixed in the newest rawhide package
Thanks for your feedback !
