Whenever I start an application, for example, chrome, I am getting the following errors/warnings:

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pantheon-filechooser-module"
[3218:3218:1126/180808:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(223)] GTK theme error: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
[3218:3218:1126/180808:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(223)] GTK theme error: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
[3218:3218:1126/180808:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(223)] GTK theme error: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
[3218:3218:1126/180808:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(223)] GTK theme error:Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",
[3218:3218:1126/180808:ERROR:browser_main_loop.cc(223)] GTK theme error: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap",

How to eliminate those errors/warnings?

The workaround to eliminate the warnings/errors is by installing gtk2-engines-pixbuf

Open terminal and run:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

If you are using a 64-bit system, but using 32-bit software producing those warnings you might run:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf:i386
  • To much deps The following NEW packages will be installed: gtk2-engines-pixbuf:i386 libatk1.0-0:i386 libavahi-client3:i386 libavahi-common-data:i386 libavahi-common3:i386 libcairo2:i386 libcomerr2:i386 libcups2:i386 libdatrie1:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libgcrypt20:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libgmp10:i386 libgnutls30:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libgraphite2-3:i386 libgssapi-krb5-2:i386 libgtk2.0-0:i386 libharfbuzz0b:i386 libhogweed4:i386 libidn11:i386 libjbig0:i386 libjpeg-turbo8:i386 libjpeg8:i386 libk5crypto3:i386 libkeyutils1:i386 libkrb5-3:i – user6424 Sep 18 '16 at 3:57

    @B0nd The number of dependencies is largely irrelevant to the question. Many of these things are already installed, that shows duplicate 32-bit versions to properly support 32-bit applications. – Lewis Goddard Sep 18 '16 at 20:05
