Public bug reported:

Affects: control-center gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

I've got the gnome-control-center-dbg_2.14.0-0ubuntu2_amd64 with Xgl and
compiz installed. Every time I start up gnome-theme-manager it crashes
straight away.

The first thing you'll notice in the backtrace is that it has an invalid
path to metacity-theme-1.xml. I assume it means
/usr/share/themes/metacity-1/ and not /usr/share/themes/X\/metacity-1/,
but even still, that directory contains no files.

Window manager warning: Failed to read theme from file /usr/share/themes/X\/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml: Failed to open file '/usr/share/themes/X\/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml': No such file or directory
