Xmms crashes when doubling size
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
After starting Xmms, the app will crash and hang with the following error;
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
serial 3357 error_code 8 request_code 72 minor_code 0
The app must be killed at this point.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Start the app,
2) click on the 'D' icon
or select Options->Double Size
or type >ctrl>d while the cursor is on the app.
A window filled with garbage, but about the
correct size appears but the app is dead.
A double size view of the current skin should appear
Same as bug 166469?
Yep, the same, known upstream bug: http://bugs.xmms.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1907
Workaround: In a shell before starting xmms, do:
To make this permanent in the menu entry, change the Exec= line in
Exec=env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 xmms -e %F
...or of course, a wrapper script could be created for launching xmms, perhaps
moving the original executable to /usr/libexec/xmms and calling that from the
wrapper in /usr/bin.
Setting XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 before starting xmms works.
