I probably should have said that I believed that the problems I
had=20 with GTK 2.4 were likely caused by the RPMs I was using
(user local=20 bin) as I had not tried building it myself. So this
is a SuSE 9.1=20 specific problem. There have been some rather
lengthly discussions=20 about this on a SuSE forum that I frequent
and some users are able to=20 install this using these RPMs with no
problems and others encounter=20 significant problems. It appears
to be about 50/50 odds. No one=20 seems to know why. =20
Interesting. I had no problem with the usr-local-bin RPM's for GTK
2.4. BTW, are you running KDE? One thing that comes to mind is that
by default in SUSE KDE installs a GTK theme; you can try turning that
off by creating a file (zero length is fine) in your home directory
named ".no-qtrc-to-gtkrc-mapping" (no quotes, of course).
As it happens, I'd really like to run GTK 2.6, if for no other reason
than the horrible browser dialog in 2.4, and perhaps it's worth trying
Also I was not asking that you stop moving forward as I specificly
said=20 in my earlier note to not worry about my problem and to go
forward. I=20 will try building 2.6 from source in the next few
days and if I run=20 into a problem I will ask for assistance.
Agreed -- I consider Sven's note to be an FYI and I certainly don't
think that my comment should have been interpreted as asking Sven not
to do this. It was just a comment since I noticed other people using
SUSE 9.1 having problems with this.
