Glib/pango problem


Having this problem lately after compiling gtk+, glib and pango from source.

Allready tried rebuild, reinstall with apt, but nothing helps.

Half the programs i use, do not run anymore

(nvidia-settings:8381): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_get_qdata: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(nvidia-settings:8381): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_set_qdata_full: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
Pango:ERROR: pangofc-fontmap.c:2138: pango_fc_font_description_from_pattern: assertion failed: (res == FcResultMatch)

Any tips on how to solve this?

Which distro are you using? You say you have apt, so I'm guessing Ubuntu or Debian.

Anyway, if you haven't done it, I would `make uninstall` in the source directory, and then `apt-get install gtk+` or something like that.

That's all presuming you installed the source correctly. Different distros put different files in different places. You may have needed to configure with a prefix to get it to work right.
