Description Han Boetes 2013-05-20 17:29:12 UTC
Here on my ubuntu 12.04 server station I have 9 touchscreen monitors. And they all need a separate pointer and cursor. So I use xinput create-master for each window and to my surprise I get this output:

$ xinput create-master s1
$ xinput create-master s2
$ xinput create-master s3
$ xinput create-master s4
$ xinput create-master s5
X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  146 (XInputExtension)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  43 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  24
  Current serial number in output stream:  25

I've asked various people to repeat the issue and they all have the same, some at the seventh and some at the fifth master creation.

Please provide a fix for this issue.
