In Luna I used gnome-do without any issues (gnome-do is great btw). In Freya I get:

`$ gnome-do Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pantheon-filechooser-module"

(Do:10915): Wnck-CRITICAL **: wnck_set_client_type got called multiple times.

I read some posts saying it was fixed, others saying that support for gtk2 applications is incomplete. Is there any way to use gnome-do?


  • It is possible this is an old Gtk2 application levering some method it shouldn't be, and doesn't allow for third-party file choosers. elementary ships 3.14.15 on my system, with 2.24.23 as a fallback.

  • Any possible solutions? I think that installing gtk2 will break my system, I read that somewhere...

  • Have you tried Synapse instead?

  • It does the trick, but it does not solve the gnome-do problem.

This is a bug in GNOME Do and would have to be corrected in Do's source code. See this issue in launchpad.

Since GNOME Do is no longer developed, it will likely never be fixed.

  • Its a shame such nice project was dropped.
