Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-gdm-themes


Some of the themes in ubuntu-gdm-themes 0.30 included in intrepid reference to ubuntulooks GTK+ engine, which is not available anymore:

(21:29:22)(tj@ganga)(~)$ grep ubuntulooks /usr/share/gdm/themes/*/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
/usr/share/gdm/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc: engine "ubuntulooks"
/usr/share/gdm/themes/HumanList/gtk-2.0/gtkrc: engine "ubuntulooks"

When starting GDM, this results in the following syslog entry:

Nov 11 20:42:18 ganga gdmgreeter[8659]: Gtk-WARNING: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "ubuntulooks",

The ubuntulooks engine is not available in Ubuntu anymore, a snippet from the changelog of the package human-theme:

human-theme (0.25) intrepid; urgency=low

  * Added gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks to Conflicts and Replaces
