Description Bernd Feige 2016-11-15 14:32:26 UTC
On a Dell Latitude D620 laptop, gnome-shell(3.22.2) does not start. Error:
 X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
 Major opcode of failed request:  131 (XInputExtension)
 Minor opcode of failed request:  57 ()

Downgrading to x11-wm/mutter-3.22.1 fixes the problem, as noted here:

It appears that the origin of this bug is still not known. I had guessed that libinput's touchpad support was the culprit, but a minor release of mutter?

We need to apply this patch:

or wait for 3.22.3

Comment 3 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-03-21 04:46:48 UTC
So we've had mutter 3.22.3 for a month now, so I'm assuming this is fixed there. Please reopen if this is not the case.
