Lightbulb [SOLVED] Did YoU break Firefox and Thunderbird?


I've seen the errors I'm including below on several other threads but the answers on those threads haven't helped me

A few days ago I updated my SuSE box using the YoU tool for the first time in a couple of months. Since then Thunderbird can't even start and Firefox will sometimes start but die whenever I resize the screen, click on a menu, etc. The following is what comes from GDK when Thunderbird attempts to start:
Code:
keith@brundles:~> thunderbird

The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadPixmap (invalid Pixmap parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 1744 error_code 4 request_code 56 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.)
What else? I'm using KDE but have some GNOME libraries installed as applications needed them. I think I saw a GNOME update in the list a few days ago but can't find the history to check it.

All help greatly appreciated.

Remove Baghira menu from your kde kicker, reboot, then try again.....

I had the same problem, and it didnt start till after I started using Baghira.
Something about how baghira overlays itself over the kicker, is what I think is the cause,
but its definately baghira causing the problem. at least for me it was. I ended up not only disabling it, but uninstalling it
as well.

Thanks for the response - I saw a reference to Baghira on another thread.

Unfortunately I don't have Baghira installed at all - that I can find anyway. Nothing shows up in YAST or via an RPM -qa. Are there any other packages I should look for that may have brought it with them?

I do have SuperKaramba installed but that's been on the system for quite a while now with no ill affects.

Hi abisko00,

As far as I can tell it was the latest YoU patches that got me into this state Is there anything in SuSE to show a history of what YaST has done? Or rollback certain updates?

I'll re-install them both and let you know how I get on. I've been putting off upgrading them both to the current versions for a while now anyway

Thanks,
Keith

The reason for this error is the update of the gtk-qt-engine during a SuSE Online Update. You have to downgrad to e.g.
gtk-qt-engine-0.5. Afterwards everything works proper.

See following thread:

I also had this problem ... after a bunch of searching what fixed it for me was to rename (then delete if all is working) my
~./qt-gtk folder ... somehow when the window for FF is drawn it calls for qt-gtk

Lightbulb Yes - YoU did break Thunderbird and Firefox

Just thought I'd should confirm that GoodieG's link worked a treat - went in to YaST, selected it and downgraded it then everything worked again. Hurrah!

Thanks to emg for the suggestion - unfortunately that didn't help in my case (although I've seen others on here where it did work).
