i3 crashes on setting Wine window fullscreen #3032
Binary i3 version: 4.14.1 (2017-09-24) © 2009 Michael Stapelberg and contributors
The i3 binary you just called: /usr/bin/i3
URL to a logfile as per https://i3wm.org/docs/debugging.html:
What I did:
$ wine Setup.exe
What I saw:
I configured wine to run applications inside an emulated desktop window, ‘Wine desktop’ and I’ve seen it appearing on the same workspace, then freezing. A black window appeared and it said that i3 crashed and I can save backtrace, attach gdb or restart i3 in place.
What I expected instead:
Wine Desktop window appearing on the designated workspace "7:Wine" instead of the current one. And i3 continuing to work.
Here’s the backtrace: https://pastebin.com/raw/tJmpwt0j
I’ve noticed one tiny, but important detail:
crashes i3, while
does not, but it still doesn’t move the window to the corresponding workspace, and after I quit from the wine application, that workspace looks frozen, I can’t switch focus to another window neither with keyboard nor with mouse (wine window is still there blocking the desktop?) – but i3 doesn’t crash, I can switch to another workspace, then back, and everything’s normal again.
I got a system message, that the glibc (or binutils?) version I was using is faulty, so upgrade is recommended. Now after I rebuilt toolchain, X and i3, it works as expected with wine windows.
Hmm, it worked just once, then it’s back again. I reopen it.
I suspect, that the issue may be in running wine from another user (for security). My X server has in autostart
where wineuser is that user through which wine binaries is launched.
