Notes

  • 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?

This no longer seems to be the case. --Woozle (talk) 15:33, 16 July 2013 (EDT)

Upgrading

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:

sudo update-manager

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))
