Re: [gedit-list] Question about a Gtk-WARNING message when running gedit


Start the application with the environment variable:


Then run it in GDB, you should be able to obtain a backtrace when the warning is triggered.

Hi gtk-list:


I recently built and installed GTK+ version 3.6.4.  This ended up 'breaking' my old RHEL system supplied version of gedit (version 2.16.0).


So I went ahead and built and installed gedit version 3.2.6.  This version works, but I get the following Gtk-WARNING every time I run gedit:


(gedit:9928): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: <data>:5:10: Not using units is deprecated. Assuming 'px'.


It appears to me that this may be caused by a call to a GTK+ function somewhere in the gedit source code using a deprecated call format.

However, I don't know what to look for in the gedit source code.


What GTK+ function would such a WARNING be associated with?


Or is this caused by some other problem?
