|0004210||Kali Linux||General Bug||public||2017-08-30 14:27||2018-07-27 10:36|
|Status||resolved||Resolution||no change required|
|Summary||0004210: Application's menu buttons/icons in GTK2 apps are broken under Wayland|
After latest update some applications like gimp, eclipse SDK (gtk2) and VMware workstation have broken button icons.
I tried running eclipse with gtk3 and the the icons are ok, so I assume it has something to do with the gnome update.
When you complain about an upgrade, you should include information about the upgrade... what packages have been updated and so on.
What version of kali-root-login do you have now?
I suspect the problem is related to the switch to Wayland which I reversed with kali-root-login 2017.2.0.
What's the output of "ps aux|grep Xorg" and "ps aux|grep wayland" ?
dpkg -s kali-root-login|grep Version :
ps aux|grep Xorg
yes I know that an update history would be helpful unfortunately I updated a lot of packages at once (including distribution) and I don't know which one broke it. If you want I can attach the log.
ps aux|grep wayland
Debian-+ 700 0.0 0.0 188892 5208 tty1 Ssl+ 14:56 0:00 /usr/lib/gdm3/gdm-wayland-session gnome-session --autostart /usr/share/gdm/greeter/autostart
update: The issue is not present in Gnome classic
So your system is still not up-to-date... please update it and after a reboot you should be good.
I'm changing the summary since the problem seems to be limited to GTK2 apps and only under Wayland.
I tried "apt dist-upgrade" and "apt upgrade" after "apt update" and it seams that there is nothing to update, except putty which I do not want to update.
deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
in the apt source.list
apt list --upgradable
The software center also only lists putty as the only upgradeable packet. Should I be using a different repo or a different command to update kali?
I can assure you that kali-root-login in kali-rolling is newer than what you reported:
To which mirror are you redirected with http://http.kali.org/README ?
curl -sI http://http.kali.org/README
curl -sI http://http.kali.org/README
HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Do you know which mirrors are up to date?
All mirrors behind http.kali.org are supposed to be up-to-date. We are monitoring them.
But kali.mirror.garr.it is a bit special (it's a round robin on two IP and thus we are not correctly monitoring both servers). I'll disable that mirror until they change this. In any case, if "apt update" succeeds, then you should see kali-root-login 2017.2.0 (apt show kali-root-login).
I checked today and it seems that I was redirected to a new mirror, after the update everything is resolved.
Thanks for your help.
This issue is no longer relevant since we are back to using Xorg and not wayland.
