    I went to /usr/local/share/gtkpod/data/glade and modified core-gtkpod.xml and copy/pasted the obect "preference_disable_splash_screen" in the same <child> node and named it "disable_splash_screen".

    That resolved the crash.

    Hi Eagle Boy, I have the same problem, I tried to follow your hint but I don't understand.

    in Linux Mint Version 13 (maya)
    /usr/share/gtkpod/data/glade I found the files.
    I opened core-gtkpod.xml and found in line 33 :
    object class="GtkCheckButton" id="preferences_disable_splash_screen">

    your copy looked then like this?
    object class="GtkCheckButton" id="disable_splash_screen">

    or how should that line look like I should paste in the same <child> node?

    interesting, may be someone can give me a hint I did as explained by Eagle Boy copy /paste the line and removed preferences:

    object class="GtkCheckButton" id="preferences_disable_splash_screen">
    object class="GtkCheckButton" id="disable_splash_screen">

    since I then the error message changes from:
    GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gtkpod' does not contain a key named 'disable_splash_screen' Trace/Breakpoint


    WARNING **: Could not load general preferences: /usr/share/gtkpod/data/glade/core-gtkpod.xml:35:1 'object' is not a valid tag here

    Any tipp /idea how to fix that?
