    Exclamation Error accessing YaST

    This is the error I'm getting when I try to load YaST:

    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'YUIPluginException'
    what(): Couldn't load plug-in gtk
    YaST got signal 6 at YCP file Wizard.ycp:691
    /sbin/yast2: line 440: 4642 Aborted $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS
    /usr/share/themes/Sonar/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:88: error: unexpected identifier `progressbarstyle', expected character `}'

    Your assistance will be greatly appreciated, and I'm a new linux user so please go easy on me

    Seems like this might be a problem with your gtk install or your current gnome theme (you're running a gnome desktop, right?)

    Try, from a root command line

    yast --qt
    Or, if you don't have the qt/kde libs installed

    yast --ncurses

    Yes, i'm running gnome desktop. On running either of the 2 root commands i'm able to access YaST. Is there a fix to this or i have to keep to using root commands to access YaST?

    This sort of thing has happened to me when I messed with my KDE installation (ie upgraded a few packages). I used the gtk version until I got around to refreshing my packages.

    I don't really know a good cookbook procedure for doing that. What I wound up doing was waiting for the next big release of KDE, which fixed things.

    I *THINK* there's a separate package for the GTK and Qt interface for YAST. You could try re-installing the GTK package and the packages it requires, and that might fix things.

    Thanks, i'll try do that. If it doesn't work i'll just stick to kde until a patch is availed to fix this error.
