Description George Forman 2007-04-24 16:21:53 UTC
Lots of people use 'vncserver -depth 8'   to avoid shipping lots of bits long distances across the net.  Yet metacity dies with this error: *********

~% metacity
Window manager warning: Log level 32: could not find XKB extension.
Error: Cairo does not yet support the requested image format:  ***********
        Depth: 8
        Alpha mask: 0x00000000
        Red   mask: 0x00000007
        Green mask: 0x00000038
        Blue  mask: 0x000000c0
Please file an enhacement request (quoting the above) at:
metacity: cairo-image-surface.c:155: _cairo_format_from_pixman_format: Assertion `NOT_REACHED' failed.

% metacity --version
version 2.16.0

Thank you.
