v1.0 (example)
General (29)

In version 1.1.45, clicking Setup, then clicking Save results in a segmentation fault (which, in turn, closes the application)

    I can confirm this bug. It is due to the "Theme" drop-down list in the "Options" tab of the setup window. For me is grayed-out, but in the process of saving parameters, its content still gets read. Since there's no content there, the program crashes.

    As a workaround (and I repeat, this is only a workaround, this may solve the crash, but not the bug itself!!), go to the "client" folder in the source tree. Open the file "gyach_int.c" and comment out line 1751. Currently the code looks like this

    tmp_widget = lookup_widget( setup_window, "selected_theme" );
    selected_theme = strdup(gyachi_combobox_get_selected_item(tmp_widget));

    make the second line look like the one below

    // selected_theme = strdup(gyachi_combobox_get_selected_item(tmp_widget));

    Rebuild the source again ("make" then "make install")

    This worked for me, but, I can't guarantee it will work for everybody, of course :)

    I have the same problem, with version 1.2.9 on Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64
    Theme is also greyed out for me.
    I guess I could rebuild from source but it is weird that this bug exists still. Because of it I can't change any settings at all.
    Is there a more supported option? are there for instance themes that can be installed so that the box is no longer greyed out?
