Bug Description

Running a project created with ubuntu-application template you get Gtk-WARNING messages in the shell:

x@oneiric:~/antani$ quickly run
(antani:12127): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
(antani:12127): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
(antani:12127): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
(antani:12127): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

The project, anyway, starts and works properly.

UPDATE: It looks like an Oneiric Beta generic issue.

the warnings disappeared after installing the pixbuf engine

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

as #6 wrote, it also helped me in my Qt SDK warning

I had the message as I was trying to install MATLAB 2011b on Ubuntu 11.10. The post in #6 fixed the trick for me. Thanks!

Post #6 solved the problem for me too.
By the way, the error was raised almost every time a program with a GUI is launched.
Thank you, Peter Würtz.
