totem player fail

Postby ubermensch on Tue May 06, 2008 12:44 am

Hello,
Whenever I try to run totem movie player, its window will pop up and shut down immediately. I ran it in the terminal and got this message.

The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 42 error_code 8 request_code 140 minor_code 14)
(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 dont really know what its talking about (--sync command line?). I tried reinstalling the package to no effect. Whatever advice I can get would be much appreciated. - Uber

This is an ugly error I've been trying to find a fix for
More details please!
Version, edition?
Hardware?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I'm pretty sure this has to do with my video hardware. I'm having a lot of other issues to do with video/graphics. I'm going to do a bit of research to find a good linux compatible video card, and we'll see how it goes, thanks - Uber

An update, this problem went away for me after I installed xgl.
