    I hate to leave a good question unanswered, because others with the same problem will no doubt use a search engine to find it, then be disapointed

    I get the two X errors but they dont do any harm

    Most common reason for the error 2 is that you are running an example and the example folder and its contents are read only. (/usr/share/gambas/examples)

    I guess that having paths and permissions wrong will generate this also.

    Anyone with specific info please add to thread

    As suggested by niijel

    Code:
    sudo chmod -R o+w /usr/share/gambas/examples
    solves problem.

    Actually, it seems that this is a KDE error message, not specific to Gambas. A search for BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device in the forums shows that this is a common problem with other applications as well.

    This thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=376313 gives an explanation. Personally, I use Gambas often and just ignore the message. It does not effect my programs.

    Take care!
