Emacs: murrine_style_draw_box: assertion `height >= -1′ failed

2010/11/02 Comments off

This nasty bug has been around for over a year: Calling Emacs on Ubuntu from the console outputs

murrine_style_draw_box: assertion `height >= -1′ failed

after every action within Emacs.

The solution is simple, but has not been integrated in the Ubuntu repository yet.

Here it is:

In the file



GtkRange::trough-under-steppers = 0


GtkRange::trough-under-steppers = 1

For details see Bug #538541Bug #550532 and Resolving “murrine_style_draw_box: assertion `height >= -1′”
