Failed to load module “canberra-gtk-module” .... but already installed
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
but I already have the
libcanberra-gtk3-moduleinstalled. (i.e. I tried this solution, but it is already installed.)
This happens for instance, when I run
I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 - raring.
install gtk and gtk3 module should solve it.
sudo apt install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk3-module
worked for me too, ubuntu 18.04.1. Installing pidgin from terminal was the only way to show office-communicator protocol (for Lync) and I stumbled on this same problem but solved with the above and now OCommunicator shows. Thanks!
After an update of Spotify client, I had to reinstall these packages. Now it works like a charm!
This worked for me. The error happened whenever I opened gVim. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.3 (bionic).
This problem may occur on a 64-bit machine when one installs 32-bit software that requires canberra-gtk-module. acroread, for example, can cause this problem. In this case, the solution is to install the 32-bit version:
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module:i386
One should leave the 64-bit version as well as it is necessary for 64-bit programs which attempt to use it.
I have a 32-bit system so I don't think this applies. Any other ideas? It's the Copy.com client that throws the error.
This did not help for me. I also tried `sudo apt-get remove libcanberra-gtk-module` before `sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module:i386`, still does not work.
I had the same problem and solve it with the solution given in this launchpad issue.
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libcanberra-gtk-module
**WARNING**: User Paparazio reported that this command removed a lot more software than he was expecting. See his question for details.
Worked for me, ending in installation of libcanberra-gtk0. Seeing the warning from Paparazio reported by wjandrea, I first check with '-s' as an argument to apt-get : `apt-get install -s --reinstall libcanberra-gtk-module` then the line given above
Maybe too much but this solved my problem:
$ sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk*
Please, use apt-get with wildcards with caution - or better: don't use wildcards. This often leads to unexpected results that are not easy to fix for people without in-depth experience of the package management system.
