gedit – failed to load type module: menu_proxy_module_load | Ubuntu

(gedit:2205): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to load type module: (null)

`menu_proxy_module_load’: gedit: undefined symbol: menu_proxy_module_load

Annoying error, seems to has no serious effect on it running but just nice to clean stuff up so just install ‘appmenu-gtk’.
sudo apt-get install appmenu-gtk

    Thanks and it works also with all apps that have this problem not just gedit.

    If you delete the file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80appmenu the spew of warnings will go away.

    And, emacs with gtk toolkit will properly update the buffer list as well.

    No, they don’t go away and installing appmenu-gtk doesn’t work.

  • To get rid of it on Ubuntu 11.04 with Gnome 3. Comment or remove /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80appmenu because it refers to gtk-2 instead of 3 (and apparently appmenu works differently with the newer version). To test it beforehand run this in a shell: export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= This will not change anything on your system, just temporarily in that shell.

  • Correction: do not remove or uncomment this file, it will give problems starting your system. However, it’s fine to add “export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=” to ~/.bashrc
