"A malicious client may be eavesdropping on your session ...

Postby .ee on Tue Mar 10, 2009 8:01 pm

Code: Select all
Could not grab your mouse.

A malicious client may be eavesdropping on your session or you may have just clicked a menu or some application just decided to get focus.

Try again.


Since some time I am getting this message when trying to launch the partition manager or Synaptic by clicking on their icons.
I can launch them only from the command line. Where is the problem?

I am on Felicia Gnome.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try enabling levels 3 to 5 updates in MintUpdate and look for libgksu2 or similar then apply it/them. If there is no such update, enter this command in the Terminal:
Code: Select all
dpkg -l libgksu* | grep ^i

Then reinstall all packages listed in the output.

Just noticed this post, but no indication if it is fixed. I had the same message using my wireless mouse with my laptop. I solved the problem simply by inserting new batteries into the mouse. That was about three weeks ago and no problems since.

This happened to me a few days ago, but went away for seemingly no reason...
