works for me but any one newer from daihard that I 've tried fails to run.
I have never been able to use any build of Thunderbird with gtk2+xft. I believe that the problem is common to both.

The error message is (in Portuguese):

(MozillaFirebird-bin:2749): Gtk-WARNING **: Incapaz de localizar motor de temas na module_path: "bluecurve",

which means "Unable to find theme engine in module_path: "bluecurve""


oh... :) I didn't even think about that. It sounds as if they want the gtk2 theme bluecurve now. I've got it installed, so that'd explain why it works here. If I grep -i 'bluecurve' /etc/gconf, its all over the place. I suppose you can try downloading it (you dont' have to use it, I'm not) for your distro and installing a recent version.

**edit** ok, here's my final guess on this thing (for now lol): Check this bug out that was checked in on the 29th:

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128668

This forces moz to use gnome application associations if gtk2.

According to Persists time-range of the problem occuring, this falls right in the pocket and it would involve the gtk2 registery, thus involving bluecurve if there was some problem with it.

Yes Yek, you're right, the checkin for bug 128668 is the culprit. But now, when I try to apply the fix suggested for thunderbird in this bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=221217 , commenting out the line
Code: Select all
_gnome_program_init("Gecko", "1.0", _libgnome_module_info_get(),
                    1, argv, NULL);
in /mozilla/uriloader/exthandler/unix/nsGNOMERegistry.cpp the build fails with the error
Code: Select all
nsGNOMERegistry.cpp
unix/nsGNOMERegistry.cpp: In static member function `static void
   nsGNOMERegistry::Startup()':

when I try to build Firebird. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. I comment out a line by putting "// "at the start of the line, no?

Did you make sure to // (comment out) both lines of the function call? It's continued on the next line which might give you that ( ) error you got.

It should (according to that bug) look like this:

// _gnome_program_init("Gecko", "1.0", _libgnome_module_info_get(),
// 1, argv, NULL);
