Feb 2012 ArchLinux/ArchBang libpng updates i.e.

sudo pacman -S libpng

causes the following error when trying to access openbox menu;

invalid output from pipe-menu “openbox-menu”

Also nothing happens when Alt-F2 is pressed (i.e. can no longer bring up the run menu)

Running “leafpad” or “pcmanfm” from console also causes the following error;

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

To fix the problem;

sudo packer -S libpng14

then answer Y and N
