'sabnzbdplus' received an X Window System error - Kubuntu

Post by Onno »

Hi there.

After quite a lot of hours trying to install Sabnzbd I just end up with this message:

(sabnzbdplus:10044): Gdk-ERROR **: 11:05:33.946: The program 'sabnzbdplus' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 3396 error_code 3 request_code 18 (core protocol) 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 GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I'm using Kubuntu (20,04) and was trying not to install a beta version (by following the intructions on SABnzbd WIKI page), but it did it anyway. Have used SABnzbd before (in Ubuntu) and that worked just fine and was really ease setting up. Here I'm just lost.

Anyone a solution? Would be much appreciated.

Easy & ugly workaround: disable On Screen Notifications at http://127.0.0.1:8080/sabnzbd/config/no ... osd_enable


Solution: Google your text, and work down from there

The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
(Details: serial 3396 error_code 3 request_code 18 (core protocol) minor_code 0)

Thanks for the quick reply. I'ḿ afraid Iḿ not only a newbie on this forum, but an ICT nitwit as well. Using your link just gave the message "connection refused".

Ah. Go to the webinterface of SABnzbd, then Config -> Notifications -> NotifyOSD

Well the problem is that I can't get to the webinterface. After installing it's starts the setup wizard, but after selecting the language I get the message above. Sometimes I can go to the next step, but then I get the messsage above also. Going directly to the website interface doesn't work either. Bit stuck here.

Really? Can you do this:

Open a terminal
type 'sabnzbdplus -b1 -l2' plus <ENTER>
If SABnzbd really crashed, post the terminal output here, or on pastebin.

I have no idea how to fix this but it might be helpful if you could run
GDK_SYNCHRONIZE=1 sabnzbdplus -b1 -l2

and see if it stops after the exact same log line.

Onno, what is the output of:

Code: Select all


grep ntfosd_enable ~/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini

Here's mine:

Code: Select all

$ grep ntfosd_enable ~/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini
ntfosd_enable = 1
You also disable On Screen Display via this sabnzbd.ini: change the aboven setting to 0. Make sure SABnzbd is NOT running at the moment you change sabnzbd.ini.

It's up and running right now :) :)

This old post doing (in the end) the trick:
Re: SABnzbd 3.0.0 crashes frequently in Kubuntu 20.04
Post by safihre » August 16th, 2020, 9:36 am

You can disable it by switch off the Special Setting "win_menu". If you can't reach the Special Setting's page, you can also do it in your sabnzbd.ini.
By setting "win_menu" to 0 in the .ini file SABnzbd just started after filling in the setup wizard.

Thank you both Sander and Puzzled for your time and effort!

Never changed an .ini file before so quite an interesting experience in the end.
