As you say, I try to reinstall the package. I will download rgb.txt now to continue with my work, but this has eaten 20 minutes of my time. On all of them gcolor2's preset color list is empty and rgb.txt is nowhere to be found. Come on people, this is clearly something that needs to be fixed.
After reruning xorgconfig, this error persists. H3g3m0n (h3g3m0n) wrote on 2009-03-15: #21 This doesn't seem fixed, I'm still missing rgb.txt as of the latest Jaunty alpha 6. Can you repro your issue on your live CD?

I confirm the issue also affects tightvncserver (v1.3.9, there is a v1.3.10 but it does not seem to include its own /etc/X11/rgb.txt). I hope this very little file will find its own place inside a nice package for the happyness of all ubuntu users. Martin Olsson (mnemo) wrote on 2009-05-12: #45 To me it sounds like gcolor2 should just ship it's own copy in a file called /usr/share/gcolor2/predefined_colors.txt or similar?
Seriously, I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass.

Changed in xorg (Ubuntu): status: Triaged → Fix Released Cruncher (ubuntu-wkresse) wrote on 2009-06-30: #53 Thanks! A solution may be to include the rgb.txt file into the xcolors package (I was understanding the program is "just" interpreting those file !) Steve Guio (guioking-deactivatedaccount) wrote on 2009-04-02: #30 I just have one additional question (please don't read this as being a negative tone): I don't understand why this can't simply be included back in x11-common on Intrepid and a Select the "xorg" product for bugs you find in this release.
does not point to the right place where the RGB database is located. if i start fvwm i get the following error messages: "Cannor parse Color "black" Cannot parse color "grey" ..." I can see fvwm, but if i watched the menu, every button JGC wrote:The missing i810 driver is because you have to install drivers for your system. After making that change then doing a rebuild/reinstall of net/tightvnc, then reinstalling x11/rgb, I still get this error: Couldn't open RGB_DB '/usr/local/lib/X11/rgb.txt' But it's there: -r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 17371 2008-06-21

If I open gcolor2 the colors and indeed missing on this machine just as you suggested. check over here To continue the list of tools that already include a (redundant) copy of /etc/X11/rgb.txt, ImageMagick (including tools such as "convert" and "identify") has the color names incorporated into its library, libMagick.so.10,
Simply saying that rgb.txt is no longer used by xserver 1.5 is NOT a reasonable answer, as any OS upgrade needs to be able to handle legacy code. The missing file is not a wishlist item, since it *breaks* the usability of several utilities in several official Ubuntu packages. Scale this to millions of Ubuntu users ...
The problem has only happened since I installed Sarge on a notebook and started running applications from it on my NCD, so I believe it is something in Debian, and evidently
It is not supported in any way. Adding a simple file back in that WAS in Hardy seems to take a couple of minutes and doesn't require any testing. As Timo pointed out above ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/300935/comments/14 ); as far as the X server goes, Ubuntu is likely to follow upstream. It's not hard to do; what's the hold up?
Some > > sort of caching in place, perhaps. I find that after upgrading the way the front page said to upgrade, I can't load X anymore. Unless you count the relatively simple workaround of downloading a rgb.txt from somewhere (or take it from another package, see below), and copy it to /etc/X11. http://scriptkeeper.net/cannot-parse/cannot-parse-file-png.html Maybe it's broken on some of them and not all of them?
Maybe it's broken on some of them and > not all of them? On a sidenode, it is strange that on my Xubuntu intrepid (upgraded over time since Ubuntu edgy) the file still exists, I have 1:7.4~5ubuntu3 installed (which according to launchpad does not I use ubuntu myself. > This is a fresh install of Ubuntu Jaunty.

But there's no point in demanding that every package using this exact same file should include its own copy.
