The failure looks like this:

(geeqie:6216): Gdk-ERROR **: 23:30:16.057: The program 'geeqie' received an X 
Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
 (Details: serial 180 error_code 2 request_code 152 (GLX) minor_code 24)
 (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 GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
  variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
  backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Trace/breakpoint trap


(geeqie:6217): Clutter-CRITICAL **: 23:30:26.345: Unable to initialize Clutter: 
Unable to initialize the Clutter backend: no available drivers found.
Can't initialize clutter-gtk.
Start Geeqie with the option "geeqie --disable-clutter"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The suggested workaround (geeqie --disable-clutter) works.



Interesting. I don't think I'm going to be of any help, but I just testing running geeqie from a guix shell with core-updates-frozen commit d0f6e8ae7944666469ec1a226df502063d4d0670 under a sway wayland session and it launches fine as a native wayland client.

It doesn't display any images though, but maybe that's a different bug. It worked the same with and without --disable-clutter.
