History

#1 Updated by Nathan Allen over 1 year ago

I am also having this issue. I notice it after upgrading from a version of 2.18 to 3.2.0. However a clean install on another computer with Arch and it is working fine. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall QGIS, and I have also removed all my profile folders from .config, .local, and ~/ for QGIS and it is still happening. Had you found a fix for this?

#2 Updated by Borys Jurgiel over 1 year ago

Did you try to purge the /usr/share/qgis directory? A similar crash on Windows seems to be caused by some Python 2 remainders.

#3 Updated by Nathan Allen over 1 year ago

Yeah, I confirmed that /usr/share/qgis was removed when I did the uninstall. and it seems to be recreated fine with the reinstall. I am building 3.3 from git right now to see if it happens on that version as well.

Ran into #19476 while compiling. Once I get that straight I can test, for now is there anything else I can try with 3.2.0 that would be helpful here?

#5 Updated by Nathan Allen over 1 year ago

I have not been successful in building from git, however my workaround for this issue now is to install my plugins from zip files downloaded from the online repo. Seems to work for what I need at least.

Please try on QGIS 3.4.1, if the issue is still valid change the affected version, thanks.

#7 Updated by luke allen about 1 year ago

Tried it on Arch with qgis 3.5.0 dev
Still broken. Also i cannot go to the About window. When i click on the about button it pops a window open and then the whole application Crashes.

Probably this bug is related to QtWebKit. It looks similar to this one

More detailed log:

free(): invalid pointer

Temporary solution that works in my case (QGIS 3.4.2 + Arch Linux):

  1. check Java versions you have installed
  2. leave only java-8-openjdk and remove others
  3. try to run QGIS

I fail to see how this could help or be the issue, we are not java or anything related to java:)

also this is not (of course) a general issue.
