Rescue from Clearlook "upgrade"
I've had my 64Studio running pretty smoothly on my AMD64 computer, using it for recording (Ardour) and electronics engineering (kicad), experimenting with radio automation (Rivendell). One of the last things I have wanted to test is accounting software. In attempting to install the latest version of xTuple for linux, I was getting the following error message: "./xTuple-3.2.2-linux-installer.bin /usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:42: error: unexpected character `@', expected string constant (main.tcl:14659): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/ etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders': No such file or directory (main.tcl:14659): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/ etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders': No such file or directory Segmentation fault" I confirmed that there was a file called "gdk-pixbuf.loaders" at the location the installer seemed to be looking at. Although it originally was named with .32 after it, I used gedit to make another copy in that folder, keeping the original as well. This seemed to cure problems except for the first one, dealing with Clearlooks. I went to the Clearlooks site and downloaded their latest version for linux and installed it. I now have no proper icons for programs on my launcher, and although I was able to reinstall the spashscreen for 64Studio, I don't seem able to get back the desktop image that I had before, nor the icons for things including the popup menu to select programs to run. When I reboot, following the spash screen I get error messages regarding the system not being able to load images, and then the login is forced to use a generic theme. Many error messages are displayed once I get to the desktop. Although it doesn't seem to affect individual applications from running, it is quite disconcerting. Would anyone know what I need to reinstall to get my icons back for 64Studio? There is also an error message to do with network services, although I am able to connect to my own network and then from there to web sites such as this one. Any advice would be welcomed, appreciated! Thanks, Donn
