When using any gtk2 application with DSL 3.0 I've got error related to lib_pango saying :
there was an error in the creation of :
(xchat:333): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
Pango-error **: file shape.c: line 75 (pango_shape): assertion failed: (flyphs -> num_glyphs > 0)

Did you select "Update_to_GTK2" in the MyDSL menu after loading the gtk2-0705.dsl or gtk-0705.unc extension before you tried to run a GTK2 application?

Thanks for the tip nym1.
Any chance that this can be added to the info/description - I'm sure others have floundered with this too.
Posted by roberts on Nov. 19 2006,17:02It is already in the info for the .unc version.
I have added it to the .dsl version.
Posted by mondes_engloutis on Nov. 20 2006,10:18Where do you find this topic 'Update_to_GTK2' on the MyDSL Menu ? I've got only Apps / Games / gtk2 / Multimedia / net / system / themes / uci / wm apps

Posted by mondes_engloutis on Nov. 20 2006,15:58No because I don't see any Update_to_Gtk2 in the mydsl menu. Where should it appear ?
Posted by mondes_engloutis on Nov. 20 2006,16:11I've retried to re-install the gtk2 package, however from 10 minutes now the dsl menu is all grey with no buttons.
Posted by mikshaw on Nov. 20 2006,16:48I think you misunderstood the meaning of "MyDSL menu". You were apparently opening the MyDSL tool and looking there for "Update_to_Gtk2". Those items are for selecting applications to install. The "MyDSL menu" menu that was mentioned is a submenu within the Fluxbox or Jwm applications menu (right-click on the desktop) where MyDSL applications show up after they have been installed.
developer suggestion: It might be useful to include a temporary desktop icon with the Gtk2 package, for those who are not accustomed to the Fluxbox/Jwm menu. This icon would do the same as the menu item, but perhaps remove itself after Gtk2 has been enabled.
