The Modular X ebuilds do not, as yet, provide an env.d entry to set up the environment (including LDPATH), which can cause issues when another package provides an alternate version of the X libraries, and that package (for example NX) provides an env.d entry with it's own LDPATH. This causes the alternate libraries to take priority over X.Org's own libraries, which causes symptoms such as disappearing tray icons (for aMSN) or GDK complaining about unsupported locales. This can be solved by simply installing an env.d file such as the one provided by the monolithic x11 ebuilds and running env-update Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Emerge nx-x11 2. Emerge modular X (can be done before step 1 with the same results) 3. Run aMSN and try enabling the FreeDesktop tray docking 4. Run any GTK or GDK based application Actual Results: aMSN refuses to enable FreeDesktop tray docking, failing silently Running any GTK or GDK application results in a warning message at the console, complaining about missing locales Expected Results: aMSN would enable FreeDesktop tray docking The GTK or GDK application would not print the aforementioned warning.
