XnViewMP - segmentation fault in LM20 Cinnamon

Post by Oldbwl »

I use XnViewMP a great deal. The latest version (96.3) fails to load in LM20 reporting a Segmentation fault. I have left a report on the sotware devs own site.

I note there is a flatpack version which I have managed to run OK in a Live USB environment (I cant upgrade from19.3 to 20 until I sort this) but that is quite old (93.1).

I feel that as the older version runs, then the dev for the software is the place to search for a cure in the newer version - would you agree? If not what should I be doing?

Thanks Dan

Hi, I had used XnViewMP in Windows for a while, a capable image viewer/editor.

It is not in the repos I guess. How did you install the previpus, working version?

I opened an issue with the XnView flatpak repo on GitHub; hopefully this will help. However, since this release is so new (from 6/25), you may want to try an earlier version until this is sorted out.

Another option is the AppImage: https://download.xnview.com/XnView_MP.g ... 4.AppImage

UPDATE: just installed a Mint 20 VM and the AppImage works.

I downloaded the .deb from the Authors site. The Flatpak version is way to old IMHO

The maintainer of XnViewMP is aware of the problem and actively looking into it.

In the meantime, you will find that v0.94.2 will work. You can get it (XnViewMP-0942-linux-x64.deb) from here:

Thanks. Big help.

Update: Latest report at the XnView User Forum is that the new (30 June) 0.96.4 is still failing on Mint 20 Cinnamon.

I was able to install the 0.94.4 deb, and it segfaults for me, too. But i could sudo run it, then it ran a qt init window, then after that xnvew started. But still not for my regular user.

OK, I got it working. I did a few things like uninstall qt5-gtk2-platformtheme and uninstalled and reinstalled qt5-gtk-platformtheme. I also ran qt5ct and having it rebuild my fonts config file. I think maybe since I copied lots of my .config files over that it had stuff from my 19.3 system in it?

Anyway, now it looks like its working. \o/

Deleting the 'qt5ct.conf' file in ~/.config/qt5ct resolved my issue with xnview core dumps on startup.

See viewtopic.php?f=75&t=323056, but note it is in Russian.

FWIW version .92 works perfectly.
