I'm making program that generates thumbnails and an html pages from my
digital photos, I began to have problems with pixbuf and finally I made
this test:

using System;
using System.IO;
using Gdk;

public class Album

	public static void Main(string[] args)
		Pixbuf image_pixbuf = new Pixbuf("./FXCD0001.JPG");

	public Album()


When I execute the program the result is:

(album1.exe:23858): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: gtype.c:1871:
initialization assertion failed, use g_type_init() prior to this
(album1.exe:23858): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: file gobject.c: line 615
(g_object_new): assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed
Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: A null value was
found where an object instance was required
in (unmanaged) (wrapper managed-to-native)
Gdk.Pixbuf:gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file (string,intptr&)

Gdk.Pixbuf:gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file (string,intptr&)
in <0x00050> Gdk.Pixbuf:.ctor (string)
in [0x00005] (at /home/gcarrero/Programming/photo/album1.cs:14)
.Album:Main (string[])

I've other programs that make use of pixbuf and have no problem. 
Anyone knows what's happening? Is ther something I'm missing or doing

Thanks in Advance
