Thanks, Chris. I would need precise instruction on how to create a VM with the
same characteristics you used, including an example config. My system config
was pretty much created by the graphical installer.
By the way, every time I run GIMP from a terminal, I see these warning and
$ LANG=en_US.utf-8 gimp
(gimp:1734): Gtk-WARNING **: 11:49:30.835: Unable to locate theme engine in
(gimp:1734): Gtk-WARNING **: 11:49:30.838: Unable to locate theme engine in
GIMP-Warning: Bad interpreter referenced in interpreter file
GIMP-Warning: Bad binary format string in interpreter file
GIMP-Error: Unable to run plug-in "spyro_plus.py"
Failed to execute child process
(Exec format error)
And every time I run Scribus from a terminal, I see this:
pathForIcon: Unable to load icon
File not found
$ strace -f -o gimp.out gimp
$ strace -f -o scribus.out scribus
I see many lines containing messages of things that seem to fail. For instance,
"No existe el fichero o el directorio", "Argumento inválido", among other
messages (in English these would be something like "No such file or directory"
and "Invalid argument", respectively).
