gdk-pixbuf.loaders not present; gnome programs won't start
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:14 EDT
Description of problem:
(gftp-gtk:15893): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Can not open pixbuf loader module file
'/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders': No such file or directory
Same with most (all?) gnome programs. Some - gnome-terminal - complain but
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
(The new gdk-pixbuf is part of gtk2 package)
I believe this was librsvg2 overwriting the loaders file, and it should be
fixed in our latest packages, not sure if they're on rawhide yet.
Yep. Just reinstalled gdk-pixbuf. Everything works again.
Thanks for the quick response.
Spoke too quickly. Reinstalling did *NOT* write gdk-pixbuf.loaders. Both gedit
and gftp fail.
Where does it come from?
gdk-pixbuf is the gnome-1.4 package, not involved here.
Reinstall the gtk2 package, or better, install the current
librsvg2 package, which is the source of the problem.
(It incorrectly packaged the loaders file which is meant
to be generated.)
A post script.
/usr/bin/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders
should do it for you.
OK. reinstalled librsvg2. Both gedit and gftp work.
rpm -qif /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk*
file /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders is not owned by any package
I still don't understand how it failed to begin with.
