NM-applet segfault[SOLVED]

Hi  everyone, I just did a dist-upgrade on jessie and now xfce4-volumed and nm-applet aren't working.  When I try to run nm-applet from the command line, I get a bunch of warnings about "not using units" being deprecated, but the final problem seems to come at the end after nm-applet tries to embed in the notification area.  I get the following output:

** Message: applet now removed from the notification area
** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area

(nm-applet:4963): Gtk-WARNING **: Style property "border-top-left-radius" is not gettable

(nm-applet:4963): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: /tmp/buildd/glib2.0-2.36.3/./gobject/gtype.c:4239: type id `0' is invalid

(nm-applet:4963): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: can't peek value table for type `<invalid>' which is not currently referenced
Segmentation fault

Anyone have any idea what I might do to troubleshoot this?  Thanks.

Ok.  Wow.  Don't I feel like a gomer.  I swear I searched on this before I posted, but someone just posted the exact same thing.  Soln is here: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 08#p321008

Re: NM-applet segfault[SOLVED]

Are you sure that is the right link? That solution seems to be about installing missing themes rather than nm-applet.

Re: NM-applet segfault[SOLVED]

The problem is that gtk+ is a moving target, with each point release bringing changes in theme syntax that break themes that worked perfectly with previous point releases.  It isn't a nm-applet issue (other than the fact that nm-applet uses gtk+); it's a gtk+ syntax issue.

Re: NM-applet segfault[SOLVED]

Thanks, that makes sense. I was having a similar problem and fixed it like the post said by changing themes.

Re: NM-applet segfault[SOLVED]

Dropbox link down. Fixed it for me:
git clone https://github.com/ewlinux/flatstudiohacks-ew.git
sudo mv flatstudiohacks-ew/flatstudio-ew-grey /usr/share/themes
lxappearance
^ select flatstudiohacks
sudo lxappearance
^ select flatstudiohacks

Thanks #! community!
