Linux appimage startup X Window System error

See error:

» ./Manager-x64.AppImage
(WebKitWebProcess:981572): Gdk-ERROR **: 09:36:00.905: The program ‘WebKitWebProcess’ 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 202 error_code 2 request_code 151 (GLX) minor_code 34)
(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.)

Manager does start up, but only shows a blank screen

Manager’s version? v21.4.87 runs fine in Ubuntu Mate 20.04.1 Desktop AMD64.

Please can you show the (Available OpenGL implementations) result from terminal command: Sudo eselect opengl list

eselect cmd doesn’t exist for me. Is that a Gentoo cmd perhaps?

Does this help:

I don’t know the version of Manager. Downloaded latest appimage today and same error.

Sorry, please use sudo lshw -c video

Well, restarted computer, and poof, manager is back. glxinfo also returns sane info now and not an error.

Thanks for the quick responses. Still would like to know what happened, but at least I can use Manager again.

Good to know it works. A proper reboot also seems to sometimes clear this problem and updating the OS also sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade (if upgradable items) folowed by a reboot. Your reboot may have esured that Nvidea is the active display.
