Xpra: Ticket #1017: Failed to launch: gtkosx_application module is missing

I tried to launch Client-16.0-r11066-OSX10.6.8 with a Server-16.0-r11031 and it failed.

Here's the traceback I got on the client side with ./xpra attach tcp:

Client Log:

And, here's the server side log I got with xpra start :13 --bind-tcp= --daemon=no --start-child=xterm --start-new-commands=yes --start-child=google-chrome

That was a build or packaging issue with this particular build, please try a newer one. r11078 tries to make the error handling better for this particular case, should it happen again, but since running without the gtkosx_application bundled is not really meant to be supported I won't worry too much if it breaks somewhere else when missing.

It launches successfully with r11077. Closing the ticket.
