Changing line width in gpaint freezes X

Bug #209173 reported by Bang Malley on 2008-03-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gpaint (Debian)
Fix Released
gpaint (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gpaint

I'm using Hardy.

the "line width" box is just empty. Clicking on it shows a new empty box below it.

version 0.3.3-1 is affected, but not 0.3.1-2 (gutsy)
X freezes and gpaint needs to be killed from a virtual terminal.

I confirm this. On my systems, selecting the Line Width dropdown causes X to freeze, and gpaint must then be manually killed from a virtual console before I can get control of the desktop again.

To repeat:

1. Install gpaint
2. Start a new drawing
3. Click the Line Width dropdown

Confirming and high.

I also had to kill from a virtual terminal to get X back.

I've tried to get a stacetrace when it freezes but I've found it hard going. This is the best I have so far.

for those having this problem, downgrading to 3.1 works pretty well.

we need to get a sync from debian for this as they say they've fixed it.

Bug #272795 is the sync request.

gpaint (0.3.3-1.1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Non-maintainer upload.
  * debian/patches/20_fix_line_width_combo.dpatch: Add items to the
    line width combo box in Fixes the combo box grabbing
    the curser when clicked. Closes: #497484.
  * Patch configure in debian/rules to avoid rpath.
  * Fix debian/copyright.

This has been fixed in Intrepid, but it seems like it might make a good SRU for Hardy. Has anyone tried using the patch added by Debian on Hardy?

Fix for Hardy:

gpaint (0.3.3-1ubuntu0.1) hardy-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/patches: backport fixes from Debian.
   - 10_fix_crash_on_font_select.dpatch (LP: #262889)
   - 11_fix_image_rotation.dpatch (LP: #262942)
   - 20_fix_line_width_combo.dpatch (LP: #209173)

Debs for testing can be found in my PPA:

This also incorporates fixes from Bug #262889 and Bug #262942. These come from the not uploaded yet 0.3.3-2 revision of the package in Debian, but have been committed to Debian's git packaging branch. These are not yet in Intrepid. I have not yet packaged these for Intrepid as the new revision should hopefully hit Sid soon enough to sync directly. I'll set those bugs to "In Progress" and assign myself so if the sync is not ready I can prepare a package before Intrepid release.

0.3.3-2 is now in unstable. Sync bug filed here: Bug #277725

Works fine for me and looks appropriate for this kind of "leaf" application. Sponsored.

Thanks for the upload. Could you please ACK the above mentioned sync request (Bug #277725) so that these fixes will be in Intrepid as well.
