[Solved] Qt Creator on Solaris: Empty window

  • Hello All,

    I managed to get Qt Creator 2.3.1 to build on OpenIndiana using gcc 4.5.1. However, when I run the application, all I get are a couple of empty windows (first a pop up saying File Error and then the application window). Both windows are empty except for the window decorations and title at the top. I see a bunch of X error messages in the terminal similar to the following:

    X Error: BadPixmap (invalid Pixmap parameter) 4
    Major opcode: 54 (X_FreePixmap)
    Resource id: 0x3c00068
    X Error: BadShmSeg (invalid shared segment parameter) 144
    Extension: 139 (MIT-SHM)
    Minor opcode: 2 (X_ShmDetach)
    Resource id: 0x3c00068

    Has anyone run into this issue?


  • Maybe try reinstall graphics driver?

  • got an empty window on freebsd too, msg is

    QPixmap::handle(): Pixmap is not an X11 class pixmap
    X Error: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied) 10
    Extension: 142 (MIT-SHM)
    Minor opcode: 1 (X_ShmAttach)
    Resource id: 0x28
    X Error: BadShmSeg (invalid shared segment parameter) 159
    Extension: 142 (MIT-SHM)
    Minor opcode: 3 (X_ShmPutImage)
    Resource id: 0x1200039

  • Does any other Qt Application work on that system?

  • Good question. I got a 4.7.4 binary distribution (including webkit) from the OpenIndiana sfe package, and now Qt Creator works fine.
