Bug Description

If you install xdiagnose and try to run it on Kubuntu 12.04 it gives the following error:

[11:42:29] root@hilbert:~$xdiagnose
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/xdiagnose", line 67, in <module>
    app = XDiagnoseApplet()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/xdiagnose/applet.py", line 106, in __init__
    pixbuf = Pixbuf.new_from_file(icon_file)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/types.py", line 72, in constructor
    return info.invoke(cls, *args, **kwargs)
gi._glib.GError: Couldn't recognize the image file format for file '/usr/share/xdiagnose/icons/microscope.svg'

Which looks conspicuously similiar to this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-themes-standard/+bug/799505 where a thread suggests installing: librsvg2-common

Doing this fixes the issue:
[11:42:31] root@hilbert:~$apt-get install librsvg2-common
