xsession-errrors file filling up with 'guint'

Post by herbie643 » Wed Aug 20, 2014 11:50 pm

Window manager warning: Log level 16: value "263" of type 'guint' is invalid or out of range for property 'opacity' of type 'guint'

I have searched and searched til I am blue in the face and have found no real reference my problem.
I have Xfce installed and the error doesn't occur.

This only occurs when opening the Menu applet. I have tried different version from the 'Spices' page but no avail.
I tried switching Window Borders and still the same problem.
Different themes, same problem.

Now here is where I think you might say, "You're on your own." I am running:
Debian SId. (Converted from LMDE about 2mos ago.)
Cinnamon 2.2.14
Kernel 3.14-1-amd64

I just finished doing an update, 29mb, and the problem still exists.
No other problems are occurring, just this one.
Any ideas?

Well I guess my problem is kind of unique, like the wallpaper background doesn't work.
I wonder if others are having the same problem?
I would tend to think most people never even look at .xsession-errors.
Me, I am always checking to see there are any problems and look what I found...

Well the errors are gone, at least for now. Must have been one of the updates over the past couple of days.

Spoke too soon. The errors were gone from the syslog but I logged off and when I logged in again, the errors were back.
To keep .xsession-errors from filling up I just select all the data in the file and delete, then save the file.
Tacky, but saves using up space for nonsense errors.
I wish this would be fixed. Silly errors like this are just so freaking annoying and no one seems to care that they exist.
Come'on Clem, look at error files to be sure everything is fine.

I was trying something out because I have a few issues with Cinnamon. Like the freezing. Looks like I'm having the same 'error(?)'messages. I don't know what causes them. Maybe they aren't errors at all?

LoL

But I thought I should post it. You never know. :wink:

Re: xsession-errrors file filling up with 'guint'

Post by herbie643 » Mon Mar 09, 2015 4:16 pm

7 months and still not fixed. I left a while ago and went to Antergos then just straight Arch.
No more of those silly errors that no one appears to want to fix.

.xsession-errors should be a pre-requisite check to see if all is well. I have found so many errors, sometimes wtih Themes, sound, you name it. Hard to believe none of the developers for Cinnamon or the Themes ever check.

Oh well. Time marches on.
