Hi there,

after updating ubuntu maverick to natty, I get the following error running rviz

rosrun rviz rviz

(rviz:12054): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_drawable_get_size: assertion `GDK_IS_DRAWABLE (drawable)' failed

(rviz:12054): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_drawable_get_depth: assertion `GDK_IS_DRAWABLE (drawable)' failed

I am using KDE and assume my gtk-settings were wrong. Do I miss a package or something? I would appreciate any help! Thanks!

Hi, I can answer that myself. I had to add


to my environment variables. Though the message still appears, rvis starts as usual.

Cheers, Tobias
