The X Windows System error issues I was having have disappeared. Hallelujah!

Recent changes in gtk3 have caused issues for some programs.

kalu and volumeicon, for example, both exit with:
(kalu:32401): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'kalu' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 186 error_code 8 request_code 2 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.)

Has anyone else encountered this?

Andrew, I'm sure it is. I han't had the time to look into it yet, but I will at some point. In the meantime, I manually clone the sources (git clone git://something.git), move them into the src directory and then run makepkg and it works.

@GordonGR: sounds like a Git issue to me rather than a package issue. Were you able to resolve it or are you still having problems?

It seems it doesn't want to clone:

@ivdok: As we discussed on IRC the solution was to:
yaourt -S gobject-introspection-git
then installing gtk3-git via yaourt gave a successful build.

@all: If you have any questions or need immediate assistance feel free to ping me on #archlinux

Not sure how to fix. Inspecting Google for similar errors.

@ivdok added >=2.39.0 requirement to PKGBUILD. Also added gobject-introspection-git because I was failing on the non-git ver.

ivdok commented on 2013-10-31 02:57

Bumped Git to 2.39 manually, via editing PKGBUILD. Compiles steadily.

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables BASE_DEPENDENCIES_CFLAGS
and BASE_DEPENDENCIES_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Did not yet tried glib2-git, but version number is surely ~2.37.
