Package: gridengine-qmon
Version: 8.1.9+dfsg-4
Severity: important

Dear Debian HPC Team,
I think I found a bug in the gridengine-qmon Debian package.

The qmon program fails to start:

  $ qmon 
  Warning: Cannot convert string "intro" to type Pixmap
  Can't load icon 21cal. Pixmaps should reside in $SGE_ROOT/qmon/PIXMAPS.

Apparently, the Debian package installs the pixmaps in


but the qmon Debian-packaged program incorrectly looks for them in


The (root) user can work around the bug with the following commands:

  # mkdir /var/lib/gridengine/qmon
  # ln -s /usr/share/gridengine/pixmaps /var/lib/gridengine/qmon/PIXMAPS

However, I believe that the Debian package should patch the qmon
program so that it looks for the resources in the directory where
the Debian package itself installs them.

Please fix this packaging bug.
Thanks for your time!
