Errors running SheetCAM TNG - Help/advice please!
« on: December 31, 2019, 10:28:49 am »
Hi, this is my first post asking for help.  I'm excited about Peppermint 10 (64 bit) and want it to be my full-time desktop OS.  Toward that goal, I need to run SheetCAM TNG (https://www.sheetcam.com/downloads) for our home business.

I started with a clean install of Peppermint 10 then downloaded and followed the installation instructions from the web site.  I launched the program using the "run-sheetcam" script.

I was able to fix the first problem (I didn't capture the error) by installing the libglu1 library with the command "sudo apt-get install libglu1".  Launching the program after installing that library causes hundreds of errors listed in the terminal window.  They appear to be related to attempts to display PNG image files (icons?)  Here are two of the e rrors:

(SheetCamTNG-dev:3679): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: 11:01:08.658: gdk_pixbuf_get_height: assertion 'GDK_IS_PIXBUF (pixbuf)' failed

** (SheetCamTNG-dev:3679): WARNING **: 11:01:08.659: Pixbuf theme: Cannot load pixmap file /usr/share/themes/Peppermint-10-Red-Dark/gtk-2.0/assets/button-hover.png: Failed to load image '/usr/share/themes/Peppermint-10-Red-Dark/gtk-2.0/assets/button-hover.png': Fatal error in PNG image file: bad parameters to zlib

The program works as expected on Ubuntu 18.04 and Budgie 18.04 (both clean installs).  I am at a loss of what else to try.  I am not a complete newbe with Linux but not a guru either.  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
