Some notes to this code from

  if (module_exists('jquery_ui')){
      jquery_ui_add(array('jquery.ui.widget.js', 'jquery.ui.sortable.js'));
  else {
      drupal_add_js($module_drupal_path . '/includes/jqueryUI/jquery-1.4.4.min.js', 'file');
      drupal_add_js($module_drupal_path . '/includes/jqueryUI/jquery-ui.js', 'file');
      drupal_add_js($module_drupal_path . '/includes/jqueryUI/jquery.ui.widget.js', 'file');
      drupal_add_js($module_drupal_path . '/includes/jqueryUI/jquery.ui.sortable.js', 'file');

1. jQuery UI module suggests to install jQuery UI 1.6 archive from
There are no jquery.ui.widget.js and jquery.ui.sortable.js in this archive!
Besides, if they were there, the corresponding line should look like this: jquery_ui_add(array('jquery.ui.widget', 'jquery.ui.sortable'));
i.e. without '.js'.

2. If jQuery UI module does not exist then jquery-1.4.4.min.js is included. But the page already has jquery script and probably some jquery plugins created by js-scripts from other modules. The jquery-1.4.4.min.js file is included too late, so some jquery plugins get broken. I found a problem with the cookie plugin (from jstools module) which was included before jquery-1.4.4.min.js in the page output.

Similar problems on one of my sites. I get this error:

warning: file_get_contents(sites/all/modules/jquery_ui/jquery.ui/ui/minified/jquery.ui.widget.js.min.js) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/site/public_html/includes/ on line 2466.

It is preventing any editing of the toolbars and pretty much making the new aspects of the admin interface useless.

@Jorrit does Drag & Drop of toolbar works fine with your patch ?
Which version of jquery.ui library do you use ?

Jorrit’s picture

I use jQuery UI 1.7.3 with jQuery 1.3.2. As far as I can see the toolbar works fine. Do you experience problems with my patch?

The jQuery UI module 1.5 with jQuery Update module 2.0 alpha 1.

Yes in my case after adding your patch it works not well, but I think this is problem with jquery ui version.
We will try check this again. Please be patient.

The patch solves the 1st problem, but does not solve the 2nd one (for the case when jQuery UI module does not exist).

@Sergeant can you try change
drupal_add_js($module_drupal_path . '/includes/jqueryUI/jquery-1.4.4.min.js', 'file');
drupal_add_js($module_drupal_path . '/includes/jqueryUI/jquery-1.4.4.min.js', 'core');
in (line 474 ) to check if this solves 2nd problem ?

I'm actually using
jQuery UI 1.6
jQuery Update 1.3.2
CKEditor 6.x-1.x-dev (2011-ott-28), patched with #2 or not patched

The drag function is not working

For michal_cksource:
Yes, 'core' solves the 2nd problem.

And I also found that the 1st problem is not solved by the patch completely. The bug: icons cannot be dragged from "Used buttons" to "All buttons". Probably ui.widget.js is needed for that but this file is absent in the standard jQuery UI 1.6 package.

thx for tests.
I think that 1.6 package of jQueryUi is too old to work with Drag & Drop buttons feature. We try fix this ASAP. Please be patient.
