GTK Warnings installing Crossover Office


Hello all,

When trying to install Crossover Office 2.1 I get the following output when executing the install script:
Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate loadable module in module_path: "libqtpixmap.so"

.. Then the installer fires up like nothing's wrong, however when I run Photoshop (and other apps), things like toolbars completely don't show up. So I suspect that the installer's failure to locate this GTK library is highly suspect.

Doing a locate on this library returns the following:
/opt/gnome/lib/gtk-2.0/2.2.0/engines/libqtpixmap.so
/opt/gnome/lib/gtk/themes/engines/libqtpixmap.so


... so its there --

so what?

Thanks for any help

M

M-

Have you had any success figuring out what to do about the module_path for those *so files? I have the same problem with Gtk and I don't know where to add the directories so this message doesn't come up again.

Nope! I was never able to figure that out.

My hunch is that it was just the installer program complaining about that...

Hi there.

I had a similar problem. Gnome apps would open slowly and whenever I executed one via the command line, I got errors about libqtpixmap. I've got a solution that worked for me, but it may not for anyone else (because I used Synaptic to update my Gnome desktop to 2.8). It depends on what version of Gnome you have.

Here's what I did:

I looked at the parent directories for /opt/gnome/lib/gtk-2.0/2.2.0/engines and noticed that there was also an /opt/gnome/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0 directory. I checked 2.4.0/engines for the libqtpixmap library files and they weren't there. So, I just copied the files from 2.2.0/engines to 2.4.0/engines. Perhaps a symlink would be better, but copying worked fine for me. That fixed the problem for me.

But it causes another annoying problem (at least in my eyes). All Gnome apps I open from KDE run using the styles provided by those libqtpixmap files. This means that it completely overrides my Gnome theme preferences. I have my Gnome Theme set to the Red Hat Bluecurve theme, but it is never applied when I'm in KDE. If there's a setting somewhere to change that, I'd like to know. :-)

Hope this helps a little.
