Nedit segmentation fault on LM 18.2

Postby Why Tea » Thu Nov 09, 2017 5:17 am

This is the first time I ran Mint (as a Virtualbox VM). After installing Nedit, I get segmentation fault every time I run nedit. Does anyone know how to get around the issue?

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

From a forum search, it appears there has been exactly one prior thread on this subject. A workaround is mentioned which may help. If not, I suggest you request that a moderator move your thread to the general Software & Applications forum (rather than the virtualization sub-forum), as this seems not to be a VirtualBox issue and the thread is more likely to be noticed there by someone in a position to help.

Thanks pbear. I just didn't notice the last line in crsmith11's post was the workaround. Now that I have tried it on an 18.0 machine and an 18.0 Vbox VM, I can confirm that the workaround works on both.

Code: Select all

nedit -xrm '*font: -*-dina-medium-r-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*' <filename> &
nedit-c -xrm '*font: -*-dina-medium-r-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*' <filename>

Excellent!

Please go back to the first post, click edit (the pencil icon) and add "[Solved]" to the thread title. That way, other users will know the thread has been resolved. (You have to edit the first post, rather than your next reply, as it's the title of the first post which is indexed on the main page.)
