Author Topic: Lazarus incompatible with FLWM (Fast Light Window Manager)?  (Read 812 times)

Hello everyone,  :)
I am running Linux Mint 18 64 bit and ran into a Problem with Lazarus:
I uninstalled the Cinnamon DE as it is too overbloated for my taste.
I simply Chose Openbox, Tint2 and Conky to have a Feature packed Desktop.
But for some workloads I like to Switch to FLWM instead of openbox because of the neat minimize Feature of FLWM.
However, switching to FLWM while Lazarus or any applications compiled with it is running causes the DE to crash and I get put back to the Login Manager. Opening up Lazarus from the terminal while FLWM is running gives me this error:

The program 'lazarus-ide' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 211 error_code 3 request_code 20 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 --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Is FLWM just too olf of a WM to work with lazarus? Or is there a fix for it? Any help is appreciated  :D
