Hello,

I'm encountering GUI messups on specific programs such as:
1. libreoffice
2. iceweasel / firefox and all other variants..
See screenshots:

Other programs, such as abiword, chromium browser, synaptic, midori etc don't seem to be affected. This happened after an 'apt-get upgrade'.

Does someone know what this is caused by? (I suspect a broken gtk+ lib or something, but I dont know for sure).

OS:
AntiX 8.5

lsb_release info:
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux testing (wheezy)
Release: testing
Codename: wheezy

Regards,
Boozewooz

Looking at
http://edos.debian.net/weather/

and then
http://edos.debian.net/weather/weather.php?distro=testing&arch=i386

I don't see any warnings. Maybe because you are running a Custom install with added applications (which I don't use by the way). You are getting a gtk error like you think of some sort. Have you tried changing to a different gtk 2 and icon theme via control center.

And no, I have not had this kind of breakage on my AntiX 8.5 installs on my Netbooks. But I do
Code:
# apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade


instead of just
Code:
#apt-get upgrade


Because dependencies are resolved better. I also check Debian Weather usually before doing the above.

Edit: Forgot to mention. On a apt-get dist-upgrade. You have to add a user named demo before doing apt-get dist-upgrade in AntiX 8.5. Wicd breaks if you don't add a user named demo in AntiX 8.5. Haven't tested this yet in AntiX 11 yet though.

The info is halfway down the page 07 February 2011
