After reloading theme in Mabox Theme Manager tint2 appears again. However, it is still unstable especially after watching on mpv and YT (full screen). “mabox-linux-23.01-Istredd-230126-linux515.iso” works fine. Please help or advice. Thx.
Hello @liders and welcome to the forum
I noticed tint2 crash right after updating Mabox in VirtualBox. On My PC everything works fine.
But seems this is a serious bug…
How often it occur for you?
I will try to investigate this more…
Some references I’ve found so far:

Thx @napcok. I noticed that tint2 also disappears every time I put the system into suspend mode.
I just checked Mabox on the VM and there the problem with tint2 does not occur even after the upgrade
This is not a solution to problem, but i added option to make life a bit easier.
If tint2 crash again, it can be started from middle-click on desktop menu.
The patched version of tint2 has been uploaded to the Mabox repo.
Please check if this patch helps.
Thank you for your support. I really appreciate it. Everything now works as it should. Masterwork
I also got the Tint2 panel closing/disappearing out of the blue a few minutes ago.
After that upgraded right away to the latest (17.0.2-5) version; will keep an eye.
Please notify me if patched tint2 package (17.0.2-5) still crashes.
For me, it works fine on my PC, Laptop and all VMs.
Hello, can you please provide a link to the actual patch that was applied to tint2 to work with >=glib-2.76? Thank you.
Hi @nathanzachary and welcome.
The good ole:
sudo pacman -Syu
Is enough to provide the patched version.
Thank you for your reply. I’m asking for the actual patch itself so that we can consider applying it in Gentoo. I haven’t been able to locate the mentioned patch.
Hi, we need the patch to use with another Linux. Thanks.
Edit: Whoops. Nathan was faster.
BTW, I attempted to run the binary, missing dependency … I hope there is this patch available.
Welcome again guys.
Let’s wait a little bit for the Boss.
Thank you @napcok for confirming. I found that patch yesterday and thought that it was probably the one applied here, but I appreciate you taking the time to validate my assumption.
Wonderful! I tried good many replacements but none is as good as tint2. There is 17.0.2 in Gentoo portage, will get my hands on it now.
Yes, tint2 is in a different league. Even with some of its problems.
It’s sad that there isn’t anyone who takes care of it right now.
