Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219604
Doesn't run without --sync flag
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
Pitivi doesn't start with the default options, when starting pitivi in the
terminal one gets the following error message:
"The program 'pitivi' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 15 error_code 3 request_code 3 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Adding the --sync flag makes pitivi run. By extension this means them menu entry
of pitivi doesn't actually launch the application.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install pitivi
2. open terminal, launch pitivi
3. Add --sync flag to make pitivi run
Doesn't run, runs with --sync flag
Should run with default options. Menu entry should launch application
I've added a workaround in 0.10.1-6 (which is building now). Has this been
reported upstream or have you checked to see if there's a fix in pitivi's CVS?
