rednotebook @1.2.0_1: cannot find symbol "_xcb_str_sizeof"

Reported by: ronank@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…

Component: ports Version: 2.2.0

Port: rednotebook


I am trying to run rednotebook on Mac OS X. It took some effort to install it - there were problems building avahi. I eventually got that to build by not including gtk but I think that may now be causing issues.

I have installed rednotebook but it will not launch. The error message is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
