VMware Player 'Gtk::IconThemeError'
 
Hi,

Suddenly my VMware Player (2.0.5) fails to start.
When I execute it in console I can see following message:
"terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Gtk::IconThemeError'"

Any Ideas what could be wrong?
Reinstallation or reconfiguration (vmware-config.pl) does not help.
Changing theme for icons in GNOME does not work as well.

I haven't found any solution in Internet.

regards
Rafal

For me seems like issue with VMware player 2.0.5, because recently I unistalled OpenSUSE 11 on my laptop and tried the same with SLED 10 SP2.
The second time I tried to run VMPlayer it crashed with the same error.

vmware 2.5 works ok
 
I have not found the solution for VMware-player-2.0.5-109488.x86_64.rpm,
but after I installed VMware-Player-2.5.0-118166.x86_64.rpm package on SLED 10 SP2 64bit, it works fine.

At home have a different situation on OpenSUSE11 32 bit: I am using VMware-player-2.0.5, because VMware-Player-2 5.0 fails with installation.

There is small difference between 2.5 and 2.0.5. All older versions of VMware Player (before 2.5) required execution of "vmware-config.pl". The latest version not. Whole installation process looked like this:
Code:

sled10:/home/rafal # rpm -ivh VM*2.5*64.rpm

I'm closing that topic for now (though there was no solution fot Gtk:Theme problem).

In case you are interested, the solution for me for this error message was to remove/rename the $HOME/.local directory.
