    yep : update/upgrade now ! It works.
    If you can't : sudo apt-get remove gtk2-engines-pixbuf
    and the packages which need this one (audacious, for my case).

    I tried what you suggested. No luck. I got the same error as listed above.

    update/upgrade no luck,

    sudo apt-get remove gtk2-engines-pixbuf gives me same error as upgrade.

    any other suggestions?

    I'm having the exact same problem, after today's updates. I updated and upgraded about seven hours ago, and haven't been able to fix the problem yet: I'm hoping that it'll get fixed in an upcoming update.

    I also tried the fixes that were suggested to you, also without success.

    I just tried to submit a bug report, and I got an error saying it can't be reported. I hope you're right and it gets fixed in a new update.

    I've got exactly the same problem, and I can guarantee you that it is solved for me.
    I did a lot of commands, with not a lot of success. I did not remember the exact sequence...

    Try (in any order) :
    apt-get clean
    apt-get remove -f gtk2-engines-pixbuf (+ packages depending on)
    apt-get -f install
    apt-get update/dist-upgrade

    I did not perform any state-of-the-art command !
