Description Tom Wood 2002-10-07 15:13:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
Selecting the redmond95 theme will keep some applications from working properly,
such as mozilla and galeon.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select redmond95 theme.
2.Run mozilla.
3.Watch it briefly pop up and then disappear.
4.Run galeon.
5.Watch it fail as well.


Actual Results:  Apps don't work under redmond95.

Expected Results:  Apps should work.

Additional info:

Here's the terminal session where I found this problem.

[root@psyche root]# cat testing
[root@psyche root]# mozilla
[root@psyche root]# galeon
Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  serial 6005 error_code 3 request_code 2 minor_code 0
Gdk-ERROR **: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  serial 6006 error_code 3 request_code 61 minor_code 0
[root@psyche root]# up2date

(up2date:26809): Gtk-WARNING **: /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.0/engines/libredmond95.so:
undefined symbol: gtk_rc_style_get_type


Notice that mozilla doesn't generate any sort of error message.  galeon's
message isn't particularly useful.  Only when I ran up2date did I see an error
message that led me to believe that the redmond95 is the problem.

Please note that further testing indicates that any applications open at the
time of the theme change will immediately crash, hence the high severity ranking
I'm assigning this.

Same problem with the Crux Gnome1 theme. This is a problem with Redhat's native
theme patch.

It appears that the theme changes the behavior of the text input field.  you'll
notice that the URL/location text box is greyed when redmond95 theme is chosen.
 Then if you open mozilla and try to type in the text field - poof - mozilla
disappears/crashes with aforementioned error.  It doesn't appear to affect all
applications with a similar text entry field - I.E.- "run program" dialog.

Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-04-22 00:44:13 UTC
This is certainly not an issue anymore:
gtk-engine explictly erases Redmond95
gtk-engine is deprecated now
mozilla doesn't use gtk1 now.

Why any and all issues for any Red Hat Linux release aren't closed already
remains a mystery...
