Hello,

The failure looks like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ geeqie

(geeqie:6216): Gdk-ERROR **: 23:30:16.057: The program 'geeqie' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 180 error_code 2 request_code 152 (GLX) minor_code 24)
  (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.)
Trace/breakpoint trap

$ GDK_SYNCHRONIZE= geeqie

(geeqie:6217): Clutter-CRITICAL **: 23:30:26.345: Unable to initialize Clutter: Unable to initialize the Clutter backend: no available drivers found.
Can't initialize clutter-gtk.
Start Geeqie with the option "geeqie --disable-clutter"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The suggested workaround (geeqie --disable-clutter) works.

Thanks,

Maxim

Interesting. I don't think I'm going to be of any help, but I just testing 
running geeqie from a guix shell with core-updates-frozen commit 
d0f6e8ae7944666469ec1a226df502063d4d0670 under a sway wayland session and 
it launches fine as a native wayland client.

It doesn't display any images though, but maybe that's a different bug. It 
worked the same with and without --disable-clutter.

Best,
Jack

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 835 bytes --]

I had reported this on IRC earlier and think I've found the fix. The upstream issue is https://github.com/BestImageViewer/geeqie/issues/829  and leads to the following commit that should fix it https://github.com/BestImageViewer/geeqie/commit/f34ea0700048c27319a2256408171adda32a7580

I'm attaching this commit as a patch for our current version (just cherry-picked this commit) to try. I tried it with the following command

guix shell geeqie --with-patch=geeqie=0001-Fix-829-segfault-with-clutter-gtk.patch

And it started up for me without the error or changing options. I'm not sure if this is related to some other issues that we discussed on IRC (a segfault on icon view?), but at least this fixes the startup problem. Since this is fixed upstream, on the next version update we should be able to remove this patch.

John

Subject: [PATCH] Fix #829: segfault with clutter-gtk

https://github.com/BestImageViewer/geeqie/issues/829

This fix might cause other problems which might be cured by calling:
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 geeqie

or, worst case:
geeqie --disable-clutter
