Bug Description


since the update to version 1.3.0 I get a segfault when qarte starts. After the settings dialogbox is opened, the program crashes on click on any of the buttons (directory browse, close, etc...)

Here is the output of "qarte --debug" although I dont think that this tells anything about the actual cause:

Segmentation fault

System is ArchLinux with latest packages...

Thanks for the report.

I can't reproduce it on Arch with KDE, what is your environment ?

The segfault is not the cause of the crash but the result after an unexpected close.

Changed in qarte:
status: New → Incomplete

I use xfce.
Interestingly, I do not get the segfault on my laptop also running Arch Linux with xfce but without latest upgrades. Removing qarte and all its dependencies and reinstalling it did not solve the problem. I try to find the cause of the problem over the weekend. Now I am more confident that it is not a qarte problem but something else... Maybe a broken python package?
Can you give me a hint what happens when any button is pressed in the config dialog of qarte? And where are the config settings stored? I dont see any ~/.qarte file or directory...

ignore my question for the config dir please. I found ~/.Qarte ;)

I found the source of the crash! The Xfce theme I was using seems to be broken...weird!
Switching it to some other default theme made the problem go away...
So sorry for bothering ;)
