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
*** Bug 599790 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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.
