Hello to Sun Grid Engine, UI, and package experts,

After installing Sun Grid Engine and trying to run the qmon graphic user interface, the system shows the following errors:

Warning: Cannot convert string "intro" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_job" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_queue" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_submit" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_cplx" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_host" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_cluster" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_sched" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_calendar" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_user" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_pe" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_ckpt" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_ticket" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_prj" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_rqs" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_ar" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_browser" to type Pixmap
Warning: Cannot convert string "toolbar_exit" to type Pixmap

The qmon window appears yet is small and missing the buttons that are usually there.

The Ubuntu 14.04LTS is almost a fresh install without updates. SGE qmon version installed is: 6.2u5-7.3

I did try to look for other answers. You may find a similar question issue to mine in: Sun Grid Engine's qmon -- "Cannot convert string..."

However, the answer provided by Ray regarding using Son of Grid Engine does not seem to work for me since sge_8.1.6_amd64.deb complains on dependencies - lesstif2 (>= 1:0.94.4)

I know that qmon and SGE worked well on a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04LTS in April. Since there were no changes in the package that was last changed in February. I assume that my options are either: A: Roll back to Ubuntu 12.04LTS B: Wait until there is a fix to either Ubuntu or qmon C: Build from source code

Option C seems too time consuming. Option B depends if there is someone on this list who can fix this. Option A seems the obvious choice, yet I rather upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04LTS If possible.

I hope there is a simple fix.

Jacob
