[orca-list] A possible temporary solution with Firefox and Thunderbird related in LXDE environment


This day morning I get a letter from a Debian testing user, because oldest time I reported in Mozilla bug tracker the Firefox and Thunderbird not accessible with LXDE environment.
Report link is following:

He wrote following:
"The problem is an issue with the gtk module import path. The fix
for me in debian testing was to copy the modules directory from
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/ to /usr/lib/gtk-2.0."
When I created a simbolic link the /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0 directory to /usr/lib directory, in LXDE environment Firefox and Thunderbird accessible, similar in GNOME environment.
I ran following commands:
1. sudo su
2. cd /usr/lib
3. ln -s i386-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0 .

I don't no without this simlink why not founding Firefox and Thunderbird the proper GTK modules in LXDE environment, but the workaround works right.

Sorry to I open a new thread this Firefox and LXDE environment topic related, but not founded the very old thread with affecting this question. I tested this workaround in Ubuntu 14.04 after installed the lubuntu-desktop metapackage and latest Lubuntu 14.04 live CD, the workaround works good me.
