TBrowser causes segmentation fault


I am using the root 3.10/02 binary (specifically root_v3.10.02.Linux.RH7.3.gcc2952). When I start root up and type ‘TBrowser m’ I get:

root [0] TBrowser m
Error in TGComboBox::TGComboBox: arrow_down.xpm not found
Error in TGVScrollBar::TGHScrollBar: arrow_*.xpm not found
Error in TGTreeLBEntry::TGTreeLBEntry: icon not found for entry Current dir

*** Break *** segmentation violation
Generating stack trace…

This seems to have been seen in root 3.10/01 here:


and the last response is one stating:

I can reproduce the problem with the gcc2.95 version of 3.10/01
We will investigate the problem. Thanks for reporting it.

Is there a known workaround for this problem now (the above comment is from Nov 2003) I can use?

Will going to root version 4 do me any good?



Hi Mark,

This problem appears only with the version of ROOT compiled with gcc2.95.2 under lxplus. If you take the version compiled with gcc2.95.3
it should work. Take this version from the Download page of 4.00/02
