I'm trying to get GIMP to work over remote X. All other programs I try to use
on the same setup work, but GIMP is stubbornly refusing.
I log in on the server using
ssh -X jarl
If I simply fire up xterm, it starts and displays on my local system. However,
GIMP gives the following output:
gimp_composite: use=yes, verbose=no
Processor instruction sets: -mmx -sse -sse2 -3dnow -altivec -vis
Adding theme 'Small' (/usr/share/gimp/2.0/themes/Small)
Adding theme 'Default' (/usr/share/gimp/2.0/themes/Default)
The program 'gimp' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 150 error_code 3 request_code 38 minor_code 0)
(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.)
Does this make any sense to anyone out there?
