    hi. i love your theme big time but i am experiencing a pretty major problem as
    a result of having it installed.
    when i launch software-center in karmic koala, it launches and then almost
    immediately crashes.

    here is the output copied from the terminal after running software-center:

    ~$ software-center

    that bug report on ubuntu's site was from me. i posted it on ubuntu's site and
    on yours to better the odds of a fix i guess. really not sure what the problem
    is but in the above post the error references a file as part of your mac4lin
    package which it seems to have a problem with "shadow-out.png".
    ?

     
  • The first error related to the GTK theme is about borders being out of bounds.
    Its a warning that there is a mismatch b/w the image and the border size. As
    long as you don't see anything weird in your interface you are fine with it.

    If you see the last line "(software-center:25754): GStreamer-WARNING **:
    adding type gulong multiple times Could not initialize GStreamer: Error re-
    scanning registry , child terminated by signal", thats where the program is
    crashing; rest all are just warnings. My guess would be that Gstreamer is not
    properly installed.

    You can try changing the theme and see if software center crashes again. If
    not, then apply Mac4Lin and confirm if it crashes only due to this. I'm pretty
    sure its not a Mac4Lin issue. Mac4Lin doesn't have to do anything with
    Gstreamer or software update or any of the system files.
