    Default GNOME Pie

    Read an interesting article about GNOME Pie and thought I'd just give it a quick go. Installed it via YAST as you do, but unfortunately it doesn't want to launch. Which is a bit unfortunate for a Application Launcher. Now when I try to do it via the terminal I get the following output:

    Code:
    [WARNING] Failed to find pie configuration file "pies.conf"! (This should only happen when Gnome-Pie is started for the first time...)
    [WARNING] Failed to find settings file "gnome-pie.conf"! (This should only happen when Gnome-Pie is started for the first time...)
    [MESSAGE] Welcome to Gnome-Pie 0.7.0!
    [MESSAGE] Creating new configuration file in "/home/ingvar/.config/gnome-pie/pies.conf".
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    Now I am not that clued up on the whole Terminal language but I am guessing it's that last line that is providing a bit of difficulty for me.

    Hi
    What desktop environment are you using?

    Just tested here on GNOME and all works fine;

    Code:
    gnome-pie
    
    [WARNING] Failed to find pie configuration file "pies.conf"! (This should only happen when Gnome-Pie is started for the first time...)
    [WARNING] Failed to find settings file "gnome-pie.conf"! (This should only happen when Gnome-Pie is started for the first time...)
    [MESSAGE] Welcome to Gnome-Pie 0.7.0!

    I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/home/myuser/.config/gnome-pie/gnome-pie.conf"
    [WARNING] Error loading settings: gnome-pie.conf not found! Using defaults...
    [WARNING] No theme specified! Using default...

    Can you try reseting;

    Code:
    gnome-pie -r

    Hi
    Are you using gnome shell extensions, if so is TopIcons Plus installed?

    Yes, I do. Should I uninstall?

    Hi
    No, it's needed by gnome-pie. So it's still crashing?

    Your running Wayland or Xorg?

    Code:
    echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE
    If it's wayland, logout and after you select you username, select the cog and switch to Xorg, then test again.
