GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_scale_simple: assertion `dest_width > 0' failed

Bug #927393 reported by jmattock78 on 2012-02-06
This bug affects 9 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gdk-pixbuf (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

when lxde starts up on lubuntu nm-applet icons goes to some default that GtkStatusIcon chooses(as well as other icons on the desktop; image attached)
networkmanager runs fine, more cosmetic if anything(annoying).

in a terminal I see;


GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_scale_simple: assertion `dest_width > 0' failed
** Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area

I would downgrade/upgrade libpixbuf*, but given there is a huge dependency I will just leave it for now and wait for the proper updates.

I have the same issue using i3 window manager, with Ubuntu 12.04.

at the moment I am not at the machine that has these issues(will try to
get to it). from what I remember I updated to Cinnamon and all icons are
there no warning messages with gdk, but I will see as soon as I get to
the machine to see
