Upon trying to launch Minecraft, I received this error.

Thank you in advance for any help.

The program 'java' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'RenderBadPicture (invalid Picture parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 587 error_code 143 request_code 139 minor_code 7)
  (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.)
  • @Snapper1_cd What command did you use to start minecraft? Has minecraft worked before? What have you changed? What have you tried? – Trevor Clarke Jan 2 '16 at 16:35
  • I just launched the Minecraft exe file from my desktop. I haven't got Minecraft to open successfully yet. I haven't modified anything. – Sapper1_cd Jan 2 '16 at 16:45

  • @TrevorClarke I think he was still using Ubuntu, because I don't believe Minecraft.exe on Windows uses gdk. Maybe it's through wine? – zwork Jan 2 '16 at 17:50
  • @TrevorClarke And Windows definitely doesn't use X Window System. – zwork Jan 2 '16 at 17:51

Seems to be an issue with 1.8.0_31, it might be fixed in 1.8.0_60:

However this report might be a more exact hit and still reproduces it on 1.8.0_74 amd64:

Switching back to java 1.7 helps. Using the workaround provided at http://my.stargazer.at/2015/02/03/java-8-jvm-crash-on-linux/ mentioned by Ruud Schmitz (thanks) helps too:

java -Dswing.systemlaf=javax.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel -jar minecraft.jar

Reinstallation does not always help. Create the directory '03@C7:8' in the home directory, and inside this directory create the file 'ync', where you need to write the launch configuration, which is located in the launcher itself (the file manages to be created before the error). I'm use TLauncher and configuration file looks like this:

# TLauncher configuration file

I had this problem with Gentoo and re-installing Java 1.8.0 121 b13 without JavaFX support resolves the problem. Perhaps an Ubuntu user can use this information to fix it there.
