|Operating System||PureOS||Prometheus 8.0 Beta 1 (64-bit)|
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
- Install KAddressBook through the software center (Software).
- Try to run the program by clicking on the "Launch" button in the software center.
- Try to run the program through a terminal window by entering kaddressbook in it.
KAddressBook should run.
KAddressBook quits with silently, if run through Activities.
