Segment Faults in FO-2016_756-01_i386

Post by ByeByeXP » Sun May 01, 2016 2:36 am

Greetings! In advance, I apologize for my lack of linux-related debug-knowhow.

My problem: FO installed clean on Linux Mint 17.3-xfce. However, trying to launch any of FO's 3 mdules (plan, pres, text) from within xfce (either via whisker-menu, xfce-menu, or desktop icons) seems to do nothing. When trying to launch from within a terminal windows, i error out with an unspecified, non-descript "Segmentation fault". Searching this forum doesn't seem to help either -- this particular problem hasn't been reported (yet). Any ideas how to isolate this problem?

Thank you, Sven ... Before posting here, I followed your directions exacly. I checked with both apt-get and synaptic that there are no unresolved, and no broken, dependencies. There's one new observation, though: when trying to launch presentations within a terminal session (cmd window), I get a

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/presentations16free: line 5: 2927 Segmentation fault /usr/share/freeoffice2016/presentations "$@"
error message. Even when launching with sudo the same segfault traps.

Could you please try to install with the .tgz archive? Does that work better in your case?

Guys,

Just to let you know...

I've got the same problem with v 758 and both rpm and tgz format.
The message says as follows:

sebatbg@linux-3ibl:~> ./freeoffice2016/textmaker
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Any ideas about what might be wrong?

Sebastian

Are you working with openSuse, Fedora or another Linux (you mentioned the .rpm file)? Please delete the file and download it again (just to make sure the downloaded file was not broken/incomplete). Then try to install it according to:

Tally-hoo!
That is a cool way to remind us of the absence of check-sums or hashes for the download-packages... :mrgreen:
