IDL IDE (idlde) on Ubuntu 14.04 KDE desktop

Fix the error

SIGSEGV error libgobject-2.0.so.0

when running idlde from Terminal with KDE desktop on Ubuntu 14.04:

Following the procedure from KDE desktop,

  1. click the lower left “start” button on the desktop toolbar
  2. go to “system settings” (you can start typing it in the start menu and it’ll come up)
  3. make the following changes to get rid of the Oxygen theme.
  • Style - Applications - Widget Style - Cleanlooks
  • Icons - Theme - Humanity
  • GTK - GTK Themes - GTK2 Theme - Ambiance (also GTK3 Theme- Ambiance)
  • GTK - Icon Themes - Icon Theme - Humanity (also Fallback Theme - Humanity)

Then idlde ran without crashing for me.
