Summary0006884: Ardour won't start after installing KDE desktop on top of Mate
I was running Mate desktop on a current version of Antegros linux (4.5.4-1-ARCH), everything was fine. After I installed new kde plasma desktop Ardour will not start anymore, output below. If I remove "/etc/ardour4/dark.colors" it starts but looks ugly. Otherwise it's stuck with an output from below. Reports also 100% load of one CPU core.
Are there any more logs I can look into/attach?

Thank you very much, I had the same problem and

export GTK2_RC_FILES=/nonexistent

brought back ardour to my arch-desktop.
