What is "Could not grab your mouse" error? solved

Postby bumperduck on Sat Jan 10, 2009 2:23 pm

The error says "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."

The only time this happens is when I attempt to open "Package Manager" and of course , i can't open it.

What gives???

This is a well known error that I thought had "died out"
