Thread: aterm doesn't work (only) under twm/ctwm/mwm and (only) if they were started from gdm.

  1. #1

    Default aterm doesn't work (only) under twm/ctwm/mwm and (only) if they were started from gdm.

    and I should add 'only' when gdm uses gnome-shell login screen. This problem (probably) appeared with Gnome 3.4, and I first noticed on ArchLinux several months ago. Now it affects openSUSE 12.2 as well ... and googling for new answers, all I found was my old question.

    Code:
    $ aterm
    X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
      Major opcode of failed request:  20 (X_GetProperty)
      Resource id in failed request:  0x100000b
      Serial number of failed request:  26
      Current serial number in output stream:  26
    More info here: aterm doesn't start under twm/ctwm/mwm (only)

    I would appreciate not to receive the same kind of answer I got on the Arch forum - which is otherwise very helpful.
    I hope it could be fixed with some X server option ... will try a couple ones (provided gdm doesn't ignore them).
