Gkrellm


Hi,

when I type "gkrellm" in my terminal window I get the following message:

"bgorjup@linux:~> gkrellm
/home/bgorjup/.gtk_qt_engine_rc:318: error: unexpected character `{', expected character `}'
Gkrellm initialises OK. But what does the message mean?

The same message I get when I type gaim.

My system is SuSE 9.2 64.

This is just a guess, but... I bet you are using KDE right?. Those are Gnome applications (thus, GTK) and they need to start the GTK libraries in order to run. Something along those lines with loads and loads of code is not right. It's more like a warning then an error. If they are working correctly, don't you worry

Now, it if does not work as it should, take a quick look in here:

Hello Megaman X,

Thanks for your answer. I have tried to reinstall GTK2 as well as some other dependencies to the same, but the message I am getting is still the same. As I said, I am getting the same message when staring GAIM and gkrellm.

Regards
