Error: gtk_file_system_error_quark


#1

Hi,

I am getting an error:

ruby: symbol lookup error:
/Programs/Ruby/1.8.7p160/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/i686-linux/gtk2.so:
undefined symbol: gtk_file_system_error_quark

My relevant versions (all compiled from source) are:

gtk: 2.14.7
glib: 2.20.3
gcc: 4.3.3
atk: 1.22.0
ruby: 1.8.7

Perhaps one of you guys has an idea what the error could be. This haunts
me since some time and I can not use ruby-gtk until I managed to solve
it.
Perhaps some version is incompatible or something.

I googled a bit and found some references like on
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/11623 but I am not smart enough to
understand it entirely.

I wouldn’t mind to patch this away (i dont think I need it in my code),
but I would really like to continue working with ruby-gtk as soon as
possible again. Did make a break of a few weeks already… :slight_smile:

Could you re-run ‘make clean && ruby extconf.rb && make’?

‘ruby extconf.rb’ for Ruby/GTK+ detects whether your GTK+
has gtk_file_system_error_quark() or not.

Thanks,

Thanks - it works now.

I cleaned up my gtk install as well. (I was using a higher gtk version
before that, now I downgraded cleanly, and ruby-gtk works happily.)
