Multimedia API Integration

Hello, I was wondering what the best course of action is for integrating a multimedia API; or if it’s possible at all. I installed the SFML library for C++ using the command

sudo apt-get install libsfml-dev

which went fine. I was able to compile a simple program fine but I’m having difficulty actually running the executable. I get the error

workspace $ ./sfml
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  1 (X_CreateWindow)
  Serial number of failed request:  57
  Current serial number in output stream:  58

Does the sandbox require more configuration from me to properly run?


P.S. SFML executables display to a window separate from the terminal. Opening up a desktop tab does not solve the issue.

Hi Israel!

I think that should work, but it looks like it does require some more configuration. I came across this topic which sounds like the same issue The solution there was to “install libglade3 and then create an Xorg.conf”. Unfortunately they didn’t provide details about the Xorg.conf file.

That sounds like a cool use case for the platform, hopefully you are able to get it working, but it’s possible that the platform may not support that type of program.
