Bug Description

Binary package hint: awn-settings

In avant-window-navigator/awn-settings/awnClass.py, in the 'safe_load_icon' method, the icon 'gtk-missing-image' is used as a last resort fallback if any icon is missing.
Problem is this is not a very good fallback: as soon as you use a non gnome icon-theme (oxygen, crystal-svg, etc.) under a non-gnome window manager (Window Maker, Xfce, KDE, etc.), awn-settings simply dies complaining that the icon is missing.

In case 'gtk-missing-image' is missing, using 'unknown' as a last last resort fallback instead of dying a miserable death would be nice.

Actual tests were made on awn-settings version 0.4.0-2ubuntu1 on Maverick i386 under KDE: I had to chose to use the Tango icon theme which include the 'gtk-missing-image' icon, instead of Oxygen which doesn't, to get awn-settings to start.

I also had same problem.

And i fix it by adding additional try-exept block to "avant-window-navigator/awn-settings/awnClass.py" where 'gtk-missing-image' is loading.

Maybe it should be changed to "image-missing".

Could you check whether this bug is still present in the testing packages in this PPA: https://launchpad.net/~p12/+archive/awn ?

Thanks!
