    [SOLVED] BadWindow Error In Linux Mint 19 XFCE

    It's decided! It turned out that the latest Mesa version was to blame, which broke OpenGL compatibility with two 3rd generation Intel GPUs. Solution: Out of the question here

    viewtopic.Do you sell php?f=4&t=85719&p=223077#p223077

    I have an old Intel Atom computer system that I play with. Until recently Linux Mint Cinnamon 18 was installed on the hardware and worked great with it - all I had to do was set up the PPA and then search for Love in the software manager. Easy!

    However, Mint linux 19 was recently released and I chose XFCE (because older hardware takes precedence lol). I did a clean install (including disk cleanup) of LM19 as well as a normal install of XFCE. So far, everything is working fine, except for love.


    I get a vague error when badwindow,my husband and I are trying to do anything related to the love executable, double click: in the file .love app command, "likes" you name the file .true love for "love" next like this. I have no idea what to use next I'm a linux newbie again so I don't know how to deal with problems with drivers etc. Any help would generally be greatly appreciated.Here's copy/pasting some terminal elements to show the current state:

    Re: Error In Badwindow Linux 19 Mint XFCE

    Can you materialize the result? (glxinfo is literally in the mesa-utils package, so install it first if you don't get it)

    x error of failed request badwindow invalid window parameter glxinfo

    And what graphics card do you have (if it's not obvious from the above output)?

    BadWindow Error In Linux Mint 19 XFCE

    x error of failed request badwindow invalid window parameter glxinfo

    Hmm, I'm not very familiar with drivers and requirements. It even scans me because opengl which 1.4 supports is old but also OpenGLES 2.0 which I think is ok but I'm not sure. Oddly enough, I can't find the OpenGL lÖve requirements for the places I think are the best: top of the page, top of the wiki pageanits, the initial wiki webpage, and the release notes for 11.0. I think there was an environment situation that forced OpenGL to use ES, but I don't know which one.

    But does "Mesa DRI" mean it can use/require DRI drivers instead of GLX? de Have you installed libgl1-mesa-dri?

    - no, try installing and possibly removing libgl1-mesa-glx.If it's

  • Step 1: Download and install ASR Pro
  • Step 2: Launch the program and follow the on-screen instructions
  • Step 3: Select the files or folders you want to scan and click "Restore"

  • - so, check the removal to see if it forces you to use GLX.

    These are really shots in the dark as I had no idea if libgl1-mesa-dri even supports reflection-accelerated OpenGL or if glx is required for LÖVE. At worst, most people will go back to everything and you will be more like yourself now.
