Bug Description

Binary package hint: dconf-tools

I use ubuntu 10.10

I don't know if other versions are affected.

To reproduce:
install dconf-tools via repos (apt-get in my case)

go to apps/ and try to expand empathy or any other expandable program

Thank you, ask me for more info if you need some.

the program crash with this output in terminal:

Thanks for the help, I didn't know about apport or ubuntu-bug

The command fails though... I will try again soon but what am I doing wrong?

Could you please check with 0.7.2-0ubuntu7 and see if this still exists? Thanks.

Nope, dconf-editor does not event start atm. I don't have a testing box, so I only upgraded dconf-editor to the unstable version, so this might be a dependency problem.

This problem is solved in Ubuntu 11.04, many debuging information in console though.

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in d-conf (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

dconf-editor works in ubuntu 11.10 with dconf-tools 0.10.0, I tryed with version 0.7.3 (natty's repos) on ubuntu 11.10 and it works too. Can't try if it works on Ubuntu natty though.

I think we can mark this as solved.
