The splash screen shows log messages as issued by the modules. It has no control over what it shows.

Originally, the intention of it is to show which modules are loaded at start up but if a module dumps any nonsense the splash screen shows it as is.

So, the actual issue is to solve the problem that the file cannot be loaded rather than changing the behaviour of the splash screen.

BTW, I don't have this message. Can you debug your version to see where the message comes from? Make a break point in Splashscreen.cpp in line 111.

i have similar messages on debian squeeue 64bit complaining yout not finding icons of the draft module.
But those are not only shown on the splash screen but also shown on the Console. maybe you can check the log windows and stdout output before you need to employ breakpoints.

i guess it is DraftGui.setupToolBar() (when loaded from outside the Draft module)
which does not properly loads the ressource file or sets the icons paths

I just pushed a fix with commit b6b5757, that should fix the missing Draft icons message..
Since I don't get that message, I can't check it's all fixed, can you guys test if it solves the problem?

sure, I'll test tomorrow.

I just installed it on my frend's PC, and first thing he said was "There are some problems"

will test tomorrow and post how it went.
