'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error (error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.)
Since the last
apt-get dist-upgrade this morning, I've started seeing
nvidia-settings crashes when I try setting something with the error below:
$ The program 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 666 error_code 2 request_code 139 minor_code 25)
(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.)
Having spent a few hours already I've tried several things below and no luck:
~/.nvidia-settings-rc--> New file was made at some point I'm not sure.
/etc/X11/xorg.conf--> New file hasn't been generated.
bumblebee--> Had same situation with this ticket and gave up. Uninstalled.
- Tried installing and/or removing
nvidia's libraries (versions tried: 304, 319, 331 afai remember)
Since it looks like the latest nvidia driver 331.20 was just released early this morning, I suspect the newly installed library contains a wrongdoer. But does anyone have an idea to fix this?
