Summary0006942: Ardour hangs at startup with gtk Clearlooks unexpexted identifier 'reliefstyle'
DescriptionStarting ardour5 as build from git today yields:

/usr/share/themes/Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:77: error: unexpected identifier 'reliefstyle', expected character '}'

The respective section of the gtkrc-file looks perfectly normal.

        engine "clearlooks" {
                colorize_scrollbar = TRUE
                #this seems to trouble ardour5
                reliefstyle = 1
                menubarstyle = 2
                toolbarstyle = 1
                animation = FALSE
                radius = 3.0
                style = GUMMY

                # Set a hint to disable backward compatibility fallbacks.
                hint = "use-hints"

ardour5 repeats that error infinitely, in one occasion it tried to start after approx 2 minutes showing the error. In this one occasion the start-screen (select project) looked normal.
Steps To ReproduceTry start ardour5 in a terminal.
Additional InformationI have not changed the ui_config file, deleting this file or config or instant.xml in $HOME/.config/ardour5 does not change anything.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is caused by using your own build, which still loads system GTK RC files.

You can't stop this without rebuilding your own GTK stack. We do this for the build stacks that we use on

The problem will not manifest with a nightly build (or should not).

Ok, thanks for the clearification.
I found a workaround also: changing the GTK-Theme to Industrial made the trouble disappear.
I consider this solved....
