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

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.

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.
