[ignore this] getting annoying warning re gtk.css:20:1

Post by sadhu »

I run a lot of scripts and consistently get this warning:
Theme parsing error: gtk.css:20:1: '/*' in comment block I tried searching for all gtk.css files in /usr/ and found maybe 20 or so. I don't know which ones are triggering the warning. Another site says the warning arises because there's a non-break space in line 20 of gtk.css. Trouble is, "which one?"

From system settings > theme, I show this setup:
Window borders: Mint-X
Icons: gnome
Controls: Mint-X
Mouse pointer: DMZ-White
Desktop: New-Minty

The error has arisen when I run the following commands from the terminal:
gnome-terminal, file-roller,brave-browser, xed, etc. Some of the responses are in different colors.

Which gtk.css file(s) do I edit to get rid of this warning?


-Thanks

Since this is a gtk.css file, I would narrow the search to the themes that are actually in use. Focus your search on the ones you listed:

Controls: Mint-X
Desktop: New-Minty

I did sudo find /usr -name "gtk.css" -exec grep -obUaPl \xa0 {} \; and came up with no hits.

Let's just ignore this...
