On first run you can load xapps in unity8 but then, after log-off or restart and it will crash in unity7 when you try to restart it.

It looks like you were using version 1.3.1 of libertine when this crash occurred. The latest version of libertine on yakkety is 1.4.1. Can you upgrade libertine and verify whether the crash still occurs?

Larry Price (larryprice) wrote :

OK I just updated and can confirm this is also happening with 1.4.1. libertine works fine when run from the terminal, but not when selected from the Dash on unity 7.

If I copy/paste the libertine binary after building locally, the app runs fine from the Dash. But if I install the deb built locally, the app fails to start. I'm guessing this has something to do with the way we are trying to find the QML in the main loop.

libertine (1.4.2+16.10.20161003-0ubuntu1) yakkety; urgency=medium

  [ Chris Townsend ]
  * Add a new update_apt_cache method and call that when needed, especially
    when installing new packages. (LP: #1625627)
  * Install matchbox-window-manager instead of the matchbox metapackage in
    a container. (LP: #1628563)

  [ Larry Price ]
  * Remove bad status update preventing archive removal from container.
  * Make debconf interactions work correctly from GUI. (LP: #1627757)
  * Fix crash on start in Unity 7 when launching from the dash.
