whenever i try to run a program in backtrack 2 , namely John or Rcrack as well as others, i see the window begin to open then almost instantly close. Sometimes it may stay open for 2 or 3 seconds then close.
Once i end session back to command line i see this error: x error: badwindow (invalid window parameter) 3, there are a few other lines below it but didnt take note of them (i can if needed). Not all programs do this, but alot of them do. i can get a terminal window open if i log on with startx, but if i use flux i cant even get xterm to open. Any ideas?
Ive attempted to google the error and search these forums and others but i haven't found anything helpful as of yet. certainly not a solution.
