gtk_widget_map failing with most/any window opening
Last modified: 2015-07-13 18:58:00 EDT
Running linuxconf as root in X-windows gives the following
error message during the add user process.
Error message from remadmin :
Error message from remadmin :Gtk-CRITICAL **: file
gtkwidget.c: line 1584 (gtk_widget_map): assertion
`GTK_WIDGET_VISIBLE (widget) == TRUE' failed.
This may be a configuration problem - if so please let me
This error seems to happen on "any" (haven't tried them all) opening
of a window into a specific setup item. ie when a window opens on the
right in the GUI mode.
Error message from remadmin :
Error message from remadmin :Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkwidget.c: line
1584 (gtk_widget_map): assertion `GTK_WIDGET_VISIBLE (widget) == TRUE'
The error repeats itself a different amount of times for each window
depending on what is being displayed.
This may be a setup problem - if so, please let me know

I have had the same problem, but only with linuxconf. I'm using the
KDE desktop, but the GNOME linuxconf comes up. I can consistently
recreate this error when I go into the basic network options (where I
assign an IP address to my ethernet interface).
On a related note, there seems to be an issue where your display
settings can effect how often you can start a program up. If I start
up Netscape, shut it down, and attempt to start it up again (via the
GUI) nothing happens. When I type "netscape" at a shell prompt, I get
an error the following error:
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
Gtk-WARNING **:cannot open display: :0
I'm running RH 6.1 on a Toshiba laptop, and had previously installed
RH 6.0 on it, so I know it runs Linux.
This is a warning, not an error. The netscape bug has nothing to do
with this. It probably has nothing to do with netscape; it sounds
like your xauthority configuration is messed up. Please open a
separate bug report about that and include the output of
xauth list $DISPLAY
in that bug report.
To the original reporter:
This warning shouldn't cause problems, but I'll look into fixing it.
I was just using netscape as an example, but I would get the same error with any
X-window application that I would try and run more than once. Unfortunately, I
can't send you the output you requested. This problem basically made RH6.1
unusable for me, so I reinstalled RH6.0. But this actual problem would occur
right after an upgrade, so I don't know where the xauthority configuration could
have been screwed up. I never set it up to begin with, nor have I changed it in
anyway (meaning in RH6.0 the problem is not there).
Did you get that root window by doing "su -" by any chance? If so, the
sh-utils from rawhide fixes the problem. xauth keys were being forwarded
from users to root on "su" but not "su -".
