    Woah! You're a program :O? You must be a very smart program to report here! Can I meet your programmer?

    Back to business...I get that error sometimes, but it doesn't affect my Internet connection. I wouldn't worry too much on it, maybe look it up on Google or Launchpad.

    Feisty X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 167

    Same here on Feisty:

    Code:
    X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 167
      Major opcode:  144
      Minor opcode:  3
      Resource id:  0x0
    Failed to open device
    X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 167
      Major opcode:  144
      Minor opcode:  3
      Resource id:  0x0
    Failed to open device
    Any time I'm running adept updater getting this error. Nothing appears in /var/log/messages.

    Would be great to know where it comes from.

    Anyone of the X-guys hanging in here to give us a hint?

    Good to know I'm not the only one. I've had this error ever since the early days of Hoary. No idea what it is, although it seems to do no harm...
    Code:
    eduardo@altepc:~$ kate foo.txt

    It happens quite often, with a variety of commands. I have no clue. Anyone?

    OK guys, the solution's here:

    It amounts to commenting out some offending lines in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. No idea why it works, though.

    Re: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 167

    You need to remove the wacom devices in xorg.conf. Type the following:

    Code:
    cd /etc/X11
    sudo cp xorg.conf xorgbackup.conf
    sudo gedit xorg.conf
    There are three sections in xorg.conf for wacom devices. Delete all three. Now go down to the bottom of the file and remove the three InputDevice entries for the wacom devices under the ServerLayout section. Save the file and reboot. This should fix the errors.

    Wacom: Well, I expect here on this box I will never need such a thing.
