Description

I am running QGIS version 1.7.4-1 on 64 bit Ubuntu 11.10. When I try to start QGIS the splash screen appears and the tips screen pops up but the main screen flickers into life but then immediately disappears. Once I close the tips window QGIS appears to be dead and doesn't show up in the list of running processes.

When started from a terminal I get the following:

Warning: loading of qgis translation failed [/usr/share/qgis/i18n//qgis_en_GB]

I m on a Pangolin nightly/live trying to run qgis and on top of what you get, i get

qgis.bin: /build/buildd/sip4-4.13.2/siplib/siplib.c:10938: sipEnumType_alloc: Assertion `( ( ( currentType )->td_flags & 0x0007 ) == 0x0003 )' failed.
Aborted ( core dumped )

FYI, I'm seeing the same crash as described by Marco on a 32-bit machine using the master ppa build.

#3 Updated by Simon Coffey over 7 years ago

This seems to have resolved itself. I tried logging in with Unity2D rather than normal Unity and QGIS worked. Then we I rebooted into normal Unity it still worked.

No real idea but I think the issue may be related to Ubuntu rather than QGIS.

Marco and nirvn, if you have still evidence of this issue please reopen.

#5 Updated by Jorge Rocha over 7 years ago

This problem is also happening in Ubuntu 12.04 32 bits, with Unity, QGIS 1.7.4-1~oneiric1.

qgis.bin: /build/buildd/sip4-4.13.2/siplib/siplib.c:10938: sipEnumType_alloc: Assertion `(((currentType)->td_flags & 0x0007) == 0x0003)' failed.

I'll try to find out more about this issue.

Any resolution to the issue?

This is what I'm getting at startup. The splash screen loads, then the whole program quits. QGIS 1.8, Ubuntu 12.04

How do you install it? from repo? source?

#8 Updated by Jason Matney about 7 years ago

Installed from source, using synaptic GUI, all relevant dependencies updated from a nightly build, i.e.

deb http://qgis.org/debian-nightly precise main
deb-src http://qgis.org/debian-nightly precise main

#9 Updated by Jason Matney about 7 years ago

Okay, tried to install from repository. Ubuntu 12.04. Updated GDAL... Still received this message

Any ideas?

How did you solve it? I'm getting the same issue with QGIS 1.8 on Ubuntu 11.10.

I am running Linux Mint 13 Maya (KDE Edition, 64bit) and had the same issue with qgis 1.8.0 from the repository (http://qgis.org/debian oneiric main). I got it working by removing the qgis python plugin (sudo apt-get remove python-qgis).

#13 Updated by Andreas Fachathaler about 7 years ago

Oh, I just realised that I was using the wrong codename for the repository. Linux Mint 13 is based on Ubuntu 12.04, so I changed the repo to "http://qgis.org/debian precise main" and qgis works with the python plugin installed.
