History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi 11 days ago

  • Crashes QGIS or corrupts data changed from No to Yes
  • Priority changed from Normal to High
  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

very likely to be a local issue (as of course does not happen in general).

Can you post the terminal message after the crash (you need to launch QGIS from the command line). Thanks.

Also install 2.18.11 and try again.

#2 Updated by Ahmad Noori 11 days ago

I have attached screenshots before and after clicking on plugin manager.
please let me know if there is a missing point.
Yes I think the update solution would be nice.
Thank you for answering

1. Yes, start from upgrading please. There were numerous bugfixes since 2.18.6.

2. If it doesn't help, please remove the old configuration. This trick used to solve many problems with crashes. Just rename or move somewhere both directories (they will be recreated on next QGIS start with default settings):
~/.qgis2
~/.config/QGIS

and run QGIS again. If you're sure you don't have any valuable settings (WMS or Postgres connections, your own styles, spatial bookmarks etc) and plugins, you can just remove them. If you have any, once confirmed this step helped, you can restore subdirectories one by one, observing which one caused the problem (or you can restore them in whole, if it didn't help at all).

3. If the problem still persists, the reason may be with one of the built-in plugins (the plugin manager examines them all when starting). In this case, try hide the plugins from QGIS, renaming these directories:
/usr/share/qgis/python/plugins
/usr/lib/qgis/plugins
