After the latest lucid upgrades, I suddenly get this message everytime I startup a GUI program from the terminal:

I can confirm this error in _all_ themes[human, dark room ,dust , dust sand] which use the Ubuntu murrine engine.

I'm opening the murrine task , since folks using the git version of murrine claim that they are not facing this error. [also, I cant find any reference in the git changelogs of this option being dropped]

@David, in the mean time , you can comment out that line. Seems the theme works even without that line

Hmm , another member using git version [in Ubuntu] mentions the same error with the git murrine too.

I've modified the display settings and now I get some weird colors and the same error message in my .xsession-errors file.
I had this error with 9.04 and now with 10.04 alpha.
I don't know how to get rid of this so I've deleted all my hidden files and directories (.something) to get back to normal colors.

Doing it again, I found that it's the .dmrc file that put those weird colors.

I've got an AMD64 with Radeon HD 5750. My CRT monitor and graphic card are not supported nor detected.

I have the same problem with luciole.
Who generates the waning almost 100 times. And so it takes a while to start ( 1 min)

Whats is fun is if i run luciole directly from the source , i.e. without installing it happens just 3 times. With the installed inversion ( make install) it happens 100 times or more.

This bug *is not* fixed. I'm getting this error message in Lucid alpha 3 with the netbook-remix edition.

Vish (vish) wrote :

@papukaija: iirc, the netbook theme in Lucid is Dust theme. It needs to be fixed as well. Kindly file a separate bug for for Dust theme.

papukaija (papukaija) wrote :

@Vish: The Dust theme is provided by gnome-themes-ubuntu, do I open a new bug for it?

Charlie Kravetz (charlie-tca) wrote :

vish: are we going to open new bugs for every theme? It is also present in Albatross used in xubuntu.

James Schriver (dashua) wrote :

Dust had already been updated upstream in the 0.5 series. I'll prepare a merge proposal for gnome-themes-ubuntu later today with the updated version. Albatross is done and committed upstream, but we're testing various configuration options via murrine.

Vish (vish) wrote :

@Charlie Kravetz : well , _every_ theme that uses murrine is going to have this error.
So this would become a meta bug for all and folks would just get mails/progress about themes they have no interest about...
Also the themes mentioned here are fixed , so it seemed no point tagging more bugs to a closed report... ;)

Well , that was just my thought , since the artwork team mailing list is subscribed here...
