Re: Need help on missing Dia shape icons

I just installed the "dia" package, dia starts up fine but immediately

and also tells me there are 49 more messages.
The rest of the messages also point to PNG files?
How about running the application (dia) from an empty/clean user?
Although the error above seems like pointing to some sort of package/
library ("libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0" or maybe "libpng12-0") corruption :-?
Yes, the rest of the (error) messages do point to the various other
shape files and all have .png extension.
Tried creating user "guest", then started "dia" from that user. Exactly
I completely uninstalled and then reinstalled "libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0",
"libpng12-0", along with "dia", "dia-common", "dia-libs", and
"dia-shapes". Before reinstalling, removed /usr/share/dia and the
".dia" configuration directory under the username I'm using. Still no
change in either dia or synaptic.
I cannot help but think my synaptic problem is related, so I tried
starting synaptic from a konsole window (as root) and it displayed a lot
of similar messages, only they were in reference to xpm files. Here's a
typical synaptic message:
synaptic:3454): Gtk-WARNING **: Could not load image
'synaptic_mini.xpm': Couldn't recognize the image file format for file
I note that the two lib packages you mentioned are used by a multitude
of applications and include some that I know are working satisfactory.
OK, something is messed up, either through my error or from upgrading
Wheezy. All suggestions welcome.
