I have ubuntu Karmic Koala, and everytime i run comix on the console. I get these error messages:

** (comix.py:16651): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed

** (comix.py:16651): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed

Everything else seems to be fine so I don't know what's causing it. I also tried the lastest svn and it also has this problem.

    This isn't a bug in Comix, but a bug upstream in gtk that has already been patched:

    https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=599446

    Ubuntu people also have an entry on Launchpad for it:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/gtg/+bug/475426

    It's already in Lucid, not sure about Karmic.

    My guess, since it's not a party crasher, is to just wait it out until Lucid comes along. The alternative (getting the latest gtk+ sources and compiling yourself) might introduce more problems than it solves, IMHO.
