Trying to run a Python script on my Ubuntu 16.04 I got this following message:

GLib-GIO-Message: Using the 'memory' GSettings backend.  Your settings will not be saved or shared with other applications.

(python:14505): Gtk-WARNING **: GModule (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules/im-ibus.so) initialization check failed: GLib version too old (micro mismatch)

(python:14505): Gtk-WARNING **: Loading IM context type 'ibus' failed

It does not seems to affect the code, but I wonder why I suddenly have this error message. Somebody has an idea what checkups should I do?

    As far as I know, these are warnings, not errors and happen with about any GUI program you start from the Terminal. – grooveplex Aug 2 '16 at 12:06

    Those warnings should still be looked at. Just because on the command line does not mean they are meaningless. It seems the versions of python-gobject included with 16.04 don't match the versions of GLib. – andlabs Aug 15 '16 at 21:52
  • What happens if you run pastie.org/10937021? Are you using ibus for alternate input methods? (Open question.) – andlabs Aug 17 '16 at 17:09

    After some feedback, at this point, I can only suggest filing a bug report on Launchpad. Good luck. – andlabs Aug 21 '16 at 15:55
  • The same problem suddenly happened on my Ubuntu 16.04 system this morning. No alternative input methods as far as I know. The pastie linked by @andlabs doesn't run on my system - I don't have GTK installed. – Gabriel Oct 10 '16 at 10:15
