Description Eduard Bagrov 2009-08-24 05:12:28 UTC
Standard says, the function XkbGetNamedGeometry can return BadName, but besides it the function can also return BadImplementation and BadAccess.
Comment 1 Peter Hutterer 2009-09-02 21:35:22 UTC
BadImplementation is a generic error that can be returned by any function. If you encounter such an error, it's usually best to file the bug against the server with a test case on how to reproduce.

BadAccess is similar, being a generic error if the client calls an XKB function without being initialized.
Comment 2 Eduard Bagrov 2009-09-04 00:38:01 UTC
Why I've posted it as a bug, because there are a lot functions in the same XKBlib.pdf document, where
the information about BadImplementation and BadAccess errors is presented.
For example XkbGetIndicatorMap(), XkbChangeIndicators(), XkbGetControls() and others.
