Disable (uninstall) your nVidia proprietary drivers. Reboot, then try again. This started happening to me after I enabled the proprietary drivers for my ATI Radeon card.

Hi, I'm new in ros, when I try to run rviz on my laptop I get the following crash message:

The program 'rviz' received an X Window System error.

This probably reflects a bug in the program.

The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.

(Details: serial 28 error_code 3 request_code 138 minor_code 4) (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.)

my laptop has an nvidia gts 360m and the version 260.19.44 of nvidia driver.
