Failed to run gimx-laucher 7.4

Post by yellowcardcs » Wed May 30, 2018 7:22 am

Hello everyone,

Today I try to install gimx 7.4 on my orange pi zero using raspbian stretch version. Installation processing was fine, but gimx-launcher failed to start.
I see a "X error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)" and gimx just exited then.
I tried to install gimx 7.3 and the result is same.
I tried gimx 7.2 and it worked like a charm.

So please tell me which reason cause this error on gimx 7.4
Thank you so much.

Hello,

Does your orange pi run Raspbian Stretch? Or does it run some other distro like Armbian?
I tested on Raspbian Stretch and I did not have such issue. Raspbian Stretch is the only supported arm distro.
Some code changes trigger this. I will see if I can add a work-around in the next release.
