Thread: Log files for application that fails to load

  1. #1

    Default Log files for application that fails to load

    I have an application (eSpeak and the eSpeak gui) installed from YaST that will not proceed beyond the bouncing icon that briefly appears on the screen. I did have this application working in 13.2 and have not come across any discussion that would lead me to believe that it won't work in 42.1.

    I searched through every log I could find and journalctl, but have found no relevant entries. Is there a log or some other place which might provide a clue regarding why the application fails to start up?

    Start from a console and report errors shown

    Thanks. I thought I had tried that, but tried again and now it seems to be working, although it does generate a string of errors:
    Code:

    And now it launches from the KDE application menu! Not sure what I did (but your suggestion got it moving in the right direction, thank you).

    Although your app may have launched, those errors in your log look like show-stoppers to me... I'm pretty sure you're going to run into problems that will either crash, freeze or just error out pretty quickly.

    Recommend:
    First, try to explore all the functionality of the app that you can, noting anything that doesn't work.
    Then, file a bug report at https://bugzilla.opensuse.org with as much detail as you can provide.

    Notwithstanding the string of errors, the application is converting text to audio with no hiccups I can identify. It's a fairly basic utility - I am unaware of other functions it might perform. Nevertheless, I began looking into the errors.

    The ALSA and jack errors are of course sound-related, something I've had some issues with in the past, especially with earlier versions (e.g., 13.1, 13.2) and they may be hardware related. But the sound is working fine.

    I believe the gtk errors concern graphics and I've seen those before with other applications. I did look into those previously, but never found a solution.

    The language identifier file is not in the location identified in the report - but language has not been a problem.

    While I would prefer a clean execution, I have nothing concrete to report at this time. If I have a failure at some point in the future, I will post the information as you suggested.
