Bad Match error from X-Windows

Post by gwalschl » Thu Feb 22, 2007 4:37 pm

I'm running wxWidgets 2.4.2 on Linux and getting a "BadMatch" error as follows

The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'. (Details: serial 69191 error_code 8 request_code 139 minor_code 5)

I have seen others with this issue and from what I understand it's related to a difference between the visual that wxWidgets obtains for writing to it's windows and the visual that OpenGL obtains.

The error in my application appears when I am about to plot with OpenGL.

Does anyone know if later versions of wxWindows address this issue? Does anyone know of a workaround? I think Brett Painter had come up with something, but he hadn't added it to the wxWidgets source base as I understand.

Any help GREATLY appreciated!
