Angry gnome-system-monitor starts with warning in Ubuntu


Hi all.
I wanted a system monitor (like task manager in Windows) and installed gnome system monitor. Whenever I start it from terminal, it throws a lot of warnings which you can see in the screenshot attached. I googled for the error, and on launchpad site, someone suggested to do:
Code:
sudo apt-get purge gnome-system-monitor
sudo apt-get install gnome-system-monitor
Seemed like re-installing to me, but I did that. No use . FYI, I use Ubuntu 12.04 X86_64 with LTS Gnome shell 3.4.1.
-------------------------------------
Please help. I hate when something/somebody warns me! Thanks in advance.

It looks like GNOME 3 doesn't like the theme you're using. Try changing your theme and launching System Monitor again.

And what about SELinux and how to enable it? In fact, is there any need to enable it?

Not if you don't want to. I don't think Ubuntu comes with SELinux. It's a system security module that comes by default in Red Hat-based distros.

Well, I tried but it was same.
Surprisingly, it doesn't warn me when I open it by clicking its icon. So I think the warnings are harmless while trying to open it from terminal. However, hiding warnings by the GUI is not probably a good thing; may be it's not running properly?

The warnings are harmless. AFAIK, when the GUI is opened using the icon, it writes errors to some log file, but when you launch it in a terminal, the errors go to STDERR, which is like STDOUT: the command line.

I see. That post eased a lot of queries. Thanks, man!
By the way, is there any better system monitor that you can refer? That would be of great help!

There's htop, which is an excellent command line system monitor. It's fairly easy to use as well.
