Hugin (panorama stitcher): Any help?

===> hugin
   CAT:Control Points
   NAM:Warped Overlap Analysis
   fails @api-max
   CAT:Control Points
   NAM:keep 5 CPs per image pair
   fails @api-max
   CAT:Control Points
   NAM:Crop Control Points
   fails @api-max
   CAT:initial distribution
   NAM:6-1-1 Shooting Pattern
   fails @api-max
The program 'hugin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)'.
  (Details: serial 1148 error_code 1 request_code 154 minor_code 19)
  (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 --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

If you have an ATI card, you can try to deinstall the fglrx package and install the fglrx-update package.

Thank you for this hint. The package fglrx-update was already installed and I removed it. Now I can run hugin and AngryBirds (via wine) again. – guettli Sep 1 '12 at 10:07

With or without fglrx-update I had several errors. Not only hugin, other apps, too. I installed Ubuntu 13.04, and the problems are gone. The root of the problem is still unknown, but I don't care any more.
