Issue description

Upon installing Synfig, which seems to run an earlier version of GTK than my other programs, GIMP and Pidgin, causes them to stop working. In Pidgin it simply gets an older look, but GIMP will not open. It gets stuck on loading.
Steps to reproduce this issue
Nothing entered.

The new installer doesn't modify .gtkrc file in user directory anymore. The gtkrc settings are stored locally now within the Synfig's installation path.

Users who were affected by this issue should remove .gtkrc file from their user directory.

The issue was updated with the following change(s):
  • This issue has been closed
  • The status has been updated, from New to Fixed.
  • This issue's progression has been updated to 100 percent completed.
  • The resolution has been updated, from Not determined to RESOLVED.
