OBTW, it's Trinity 14.0.5 ...

I now see some error/diagnostic messages I did not see before:

$ zenity --info --title=Display_snafu --text="Hello World"

(zenity:20714): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk.css:4:14:
Theming engine 'tdegtk' not found
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is

$ locate tdegtk

OK --  Now I'm definitely in an area where I have no knowledge or

How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance,
