Description

Reproducible: Every time.

I wanted a more feature-rich contacts manager over the default Contacts software package pre-installed with PureOS. I can install the software through the software center but attempting to run it yields no feedback. When I attempt to run it through a terminal session, I get the following error:

$ kaddressbook
Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway.
Segmentation fault

If I set the QT_QPA_PLATFORM environment variable to wayland, like so,

$ export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland

and attempt to re-run the program, I get the following output:

$ kaddressbook
Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway.
QSocketNotifier: Can only be used with threads started with QThread
Using Wayland-EGL
Segmentation fault

Steps to Produce/Reproduce

  1. Install KAddressBook through the software center (Software).
  2. Try to run the program by clicking on the "Launch" button in the software center.
  3. Try to run the program through a terminal window by entering kaddressbook in it.

Expected Results

KAddressBook should run.

Actual Results

KAddressBook quits with silently, if run through Activities.

Workarounds

None
