Bug report #3693
Major system-wide crash on Composer when paper-size option is clicked.
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Debian||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||invalid|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||13752|
All my Ubuntu 10.10 64bit crashes when I click on the paper-size (General tab) ComboListBox to adjust the paper size: QGIS completely disappears along with everything that was running and a second later the log-on screen shows up as if I had just started Ubuntu.
It only happens on my 64bit Ubuntu, it works fine on other two PC's using 32bit Ubuntu's: I have tried 1.6... (ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable) and 1.7 (http://qgis.org/debian-nightly maverick main) with the same fatal results.
The paper-size ComboListBox menu can be successfully used with TAB and ARROW KEYS though, so it is something associated to the click action.

testing the crash here on 11.04 64 bit beta
Linux zwam 2.6.38-8-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP Tue Apr 5 19:30:49 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
no problem to report here
is it still valid on your machine?
will try ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable also
#2 Updated by Richard Duivenvoorde over 10 years ago
installed qgis via ppa:ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable (after removal of other version) also
cannot reproduce this crash here neither, combobox looks ok
Is it only with this one combobox? Not with others?
Probably not a solution, but you could try to upgrade to natty within a couple of weeks?

Tested on d4f7eed7 (SVN r15738) with Kubuntu 10.10 64 bits. Everything OK.
Installed with this /etc/apt/sources.list entry:
# Nightly builds of the trunk http://www.qgis.org/wiki/Download deb http://qgis.org/debian-nightly maverick main deb-src http://qgis.org/debian-nightly maverick main
Maybe you could try first this:
sudo apt-get purge qgis* sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get qgis
Also make sure you do not have qgis stable installed.

Actually, I tried the same on another 64-bit-Ubuntu PC and worked just fine. So, it more like a thing with this ACER laptop. I have instilled and removed many QGIS's, so next chance I have I'm going to try the purge command suggested above. By the way, it blows up when the ComboListBox is expanded by either mouse or keyboard action, but just flipping the page numbers (no pulling it open) works OK.
