I know there's a lot of other questions about similar problems, but my error seems different from the others. (Apologies if I actually missed the one that addresses mine)
When I open Software Center I get this error. I tried to remove it (
apt-get remove --purge software-center and re-installed it, but the error remained). What is wrong? I thought it could be something related to Gnome, so I changed to Unity, but the problem still occurs. I am running Ubuntu 13.04.

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.) Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)
