Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 231454
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-terminal crashes for me but not for root. This just started happening
after updating to rawhide yesterday.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click gnome-terminal icon
Window very briefly shows up and then goes away.
A beautiful gnome-terminal window.
I installed xterm and if I launch gnome-terminal from there, I get:
The program 'gnome-terminal' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 936 error_code 8 request_code 72 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.)
I can't get anything meaningful out of gdb but perhaps I'm missing some debug
packages or something.
This seems to be independent of all gnome-terminal settings (in gconf). The
variable that makes it fail seems to be compiz. When I have desktop effects
enabled, it fails and when I don't, it doesn't fail.
I will file upstream and close here when I have done so.
