last line means (more or less)

"image-missing.svg" exists in "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/rapid/glade3" and can be viewed with GQview.

Seems like I'm missing some library, which was not part of the dependencies?

Danke for reporting this bug... and especially for finding the solution! My guess is that you are running KDE. I also saw this under KDE. What is strange is that the program ran without that library being installed, without any problems. Then one day it simply stopped working. I could not determine why. I hope it does not come back again.
