Please, no top-posting.

So we can help, please provide your $GNOME_PREFIX. And as others have
noted already, using the 2.9 (unstable) versions of packages will only
lead to trouble unless you're living on the edge and keeping all your
packages at the latest and greatest. Even then, ......

If your GNOME_PREFIX is other than /usr, XDG_DATA_DIRS will need to
include this alternate path as well.
