Question bluefish: relocation error: bluefish: undefined symbol: gtk_file_chooser_di


After installing bluefish editor using
rpm -ivh bluefish-1.0-1tex.i586.rpm

It crashes when File->Open or File-> Save is used with following error

bluefish: relocation error: bluefish: undefined symbol: gtk_file_chooser_dialog_new_with_backend

Any clues?

uhh, info?

version of gtk2?
distro?
where did you get this rpm?

that function (the undefined symbol) is a standard function of gtk so you either have a bad gtk2 install or the libraries are not recognized by your system (haven't run ldconfig or they are not in LD_LIBRARY_PATH).

> version of gtk2?
How do I check?
I doing a `locate gtk` located lot of library files in gtk-2.0/2.2.0 directory. Does that mean I have 2.2.0?

> distro?
I am using Fedora Core 1

> where did you get this rpm?
I got the rpm from
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html

that function (the undefined symbol) is a standard function of gtk so you either have a bad gtk2 install or the libraries are not recognized by your system (haven't run ldconfig or they are not in LD_LIBRARY_PATH).

Do I need to do any of this with a pre-packaged distro?


Thanks for the reply.

that rpm was compiled with a newer gtk than yours ( gtk-2.2.0 does not have a gtk_file_chooser_dialog_new_with_backend function in it, but gtk-2.4.x does) so you will either have to
get a bluefish which was compiled for your system, or compile it yourself (or optionally upgrade your gtk to 2.4, but if you've never done this before, you should try one of the other methods first, and if you have to do this, post back so we can do it right)).
