Kate terminates on open or save

Post by ArthurTonyPark » Tue Dec 23, 2014 10:32 am

I installed Kate from Mint 17.1 Software Manager. It appears to install correctly and run (including allowing text editing), but crashes as soon as you click 'open' or 'save' (or select them from the menu). If run from the terminal, I get the output below. Any ideas about what I can do to fix this?

myusername@myusername-mint ~ $ kate

Since you have posted in the Main Edition section, I'm assuming you are using either the Cinnamon or Mate Edition . . A quote from the Mint 17.1 Release Notes :
Issues with KDE apps
If you're experiencing issues with KDE apps (Okular, Gwenview, KStars..etc) run the following command:

Code: Select all

apt install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins
Note: These issues do not affect the KDE edition. A regression in KDE 4.14 prevents these applications from working fine out of the box outside of KDE.

Yes, Cinnamon.

This works, thanks.

I'm have zero experience in the maintainance of linux repositories and I imagine it is a massive job (and I'm also aware that I didn't quite RTFM), but could the mint repo not include these libs as dependencies for kate?

I've had the same problem on my Linux Mate 17.1 with MATE, and installing those libs fixed it too. On the other hand, the icons that Kate should show on its interface are gone. I can't see the usual cross image on the dialogs cancel button, for example. How can I get them back? Maybe with another package install?

Thanks.

My missing icons issue has been fixed just by installing the package oxygen-icon-theme . Hope this helps others with the same problem.

I had the same problem with the missing icons and the installation of the package oxygen-icon-theme also fixed it. Thanks a lot.

Richyrich's solution fixed it for me too. I get it now. The K in Kate is for KDE and although the kernels are all linux, some of these apps are for specific desktops.. Didn't know you could mix it around like that, put a KDE app on a Cinnamon desktop..
