I accidentally came across the attached longpress patch by 
Olog Romashing; maybe that's what I meant. In case someone 
to do what needs to be done to make it apply to the present
source tree, and submit it via darcs, go ahead.

The bug didn't occur until now. But that has to mean nothing as it appears
only occasionally. :-|
I guess if it happens within the next week we're safe. ;-)

error starting ion3

Hi all,

I'm currently tring to run Ion3 on a freshly installed Gentoo Linux distro. The installation seems to have been successful, but, when I type "ion3" in an xterm, I get an error:
"Unable to redirect root window event for screen 0.
Refusing to start due to encountered errors."
The fact is that I'm new to both Ion and Gentoo (and very enthusiastic for both), and that's not making things easy for me.

I tried to learn something from the X log, but it remains unchanged. I tried to find out an Ion log, but did not succeed...

Can anyone told me how to solve this issue? Thanks.

Best regards,

BrokenClock

RTFREADME installation notes. You're likely running another WM
already. You should set up your X startup files to launch Ion 
instead of that. E.g. create .xsession containing

    #!/bin/sh
    ion3

and startx should automatically use it on most systems.
If you use a fucked up display manager, you may these days
 need to somehow force it to use .xsession. Traditionally
it was _exactly the display manager_ that .xsession was
for, while startx/xinit didn't use it. But the desktop
herd don't want things to work so simple.

Re: error starting ion3

Hi,

You're right. I was running another wm (twm). So I just killed it, and ion3 started as expected.
I've read the README, but the fact is that I wasn't aware of running another wm, and I tried to run nearly like what I did during previous tests on Fedora (xinit, then ion3 in xterm). The difference was that I ran startx instead of xinit...
Note that, since my previous mail, I've launch wmii, and its error message was far more explicit, and I succeeded to start it after killing twm. At the time, I did not realize that the problem should have been the same with ion.
wmii did not suit me at all, so I so happy now back with ion.

Best regards,

BrokenClock

Re: error starting ion3

By the way, it seems that you have to use .xinitrc instead of .xsession with Gentoo...

Your MUA doesn't play nice with Gmane. Please configure it otherwise,
if you can.

Actually, it's not gmane, it's slrn (works through opera), so no point
in complaining to them either. The request applies.

Re: error starting ion3

Hi all,
i am using ion3 (from sources, not layman) on gentoo and it work
perfectly .
Disable all stuff related to window-manager in
/etc/conf.d and rc.conf (if you don't use openrc)
and use only a ~/.xinitrc.
Here is mine:

,----[ ~/.xinitrc ]
| numlockx &
| urxvtd -q -f -o &
| feh --bg-scale $(cat ~/.lastwallpaper) &
| conky &
| xscreensaver &
| wmmixer &
| wmwifi &
| exec ion3
| #exec ion3plus
`----
