- Many (all?) GUI apps seem to generate the following errors when run from the console, even though they may work just fine:
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 166 Major opcode: 144 Minor opcode: 3 Resource id: 0x0 Failed to open device X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 166 Major opcode: 144 Minor opcode: 3 Resource id: 0x0 Failed to open device ScimInputContextPlugin() ~ScimInputContextPlugin()
Does anyone know what this means?
- The official method of upgrading from 6.06 to 6.10 is:
gksu "update-manager -c"
- ...however, many people are reportedly having problems with this.
The Kubuntu equivalent for this is:
sudo update-manager -c
or, if you would prefer to be interacted with before actually doing the update:
Some versions of Kubuntu do not come with update-manager, but it can be installed via apt ("apt-get install update-manager", run as root or with sudo). There have been reports that it needs additional modules which may need to be installed as well and it may just be easier to use another method (...but so far this has worked whenever I have used it. --Woozle 09:02, 23 October 2007 (EDT))
