    Default Re: Leap 15.1 KDE applications crash when clicking "Print"

    Does KDE "System Settings" -> "Printers" -> ("Maintenance | Configure | Open Print Queue") also crash?

    If you start kate from within konsole and then attempt to print are there any error messages shown in the konsole window?

    Anything to be gleaned from the journal? Try perhaps to grep for "print"
    Code:
    sudo journalctl -b | grep -i "print"

    Thanks. No, it doesn't, it seems to be working fine (with the only caveat - the test page that I print from there seems to be different from that of YaST and a much more simplistic one, but that is probably normal).

    I can see this:
    Code:
    kate
    Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyKCrash: Application 'kate' crashing...
    KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/lib64/libexec/drkonqi from kdeinit
    sock_file=/run/user/1000/kdeinit5__0
    
    [1]+  Stopped                 kate
    where the first part about "Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key" appears immediately after launch and doesn't seem to refer to any critical errors, and then some output which seems to be related to the crash handling
    Code:
    QSocketNotifier: Invalid socket 8 and type 'Read', disabling...
    Unable to start Dr. Konqi
    Re-raising signal for core dump handling.
    
    [1]+  Segmentation fault      (core dumped) kate
    The crash causes Dr. Konqi to run, and a backtrace can be generated. Should I post it here?

    - and this occurs when I click on "Generate backtrace" in Dr. Konqi (here it shows two instances of that event).

    OK, let's try to clear the "Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE" first. Logout from KDE, switch to a virtual terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F2), login as your normal user, and rename "~/.Xauthority"

    Code:
    mv ~/.Xauthority ~/.Xauthority-old
    Exit from the terminal session (exit), switch back to the graphical terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F7) and login to KDE. Again, start kate from konsole to see if it's cleared the "Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE" message.


    The crash causes Dr. Konqi to run, and a backtrace can be generated. Should I post it here?
    If you have the debug packages installed the back-trace may be useful. But probably better posted to the KDE bugzilla against kate ( https://bugs.kde.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=kate ). I'm not convinced though this is a bug per se. I'm running 15.1 on two machines, one of which also went the 42.3 -> 15.0 -> 15.1 upgrade path, they both print OK to a network printer (Samsung).


    It's too long to be posted here in full, but the last events show this:
    At a quick look, I don't immediately see anything that jumps out from the journal.

    Printing is the only problem? In all other respects KDE is behaving OK?

    Yes, that message isn't showing anymore. As a side effect, the Plasma session seems to be loading much faster now, which is nice. Is it OK to leave it like that? :-) However, kate still crashes when I try to print (as do other apps).

    No, I don't have the debug packages at the moment, I could install them at some point, I guess.

    So far (it's been about a week since I did the upgrade) I haven't noticed anything major. A couple of minor, seemingly unrelated, things with Kmail: it won't store the view settings (the accounts tree, I always choose not to show the "Size" column, which reappears after a restart, plus the column widths have to be readjusted after a restart, too), plus something a bit weird - it would crash when I tried to view one particular email that I got yesterday. The message was seemingly a "normal" unimportant email with attachments coming from a reasonably trusted source, and I could view it without any trouble on my Android phone. Since it wasn't important, I just deleted it, and I couldn't reproduce the issue with any other emails.

    Yes, a new ".Xauthority" file would have been created.

    However, kate still crashes when I try to print (as do other apps).
    Yeh... I wasn't expecting it to change anything there.

    The fact it also affects a new user signifies it's "something" at the system rather than user level. My feeling is still that something went awry in the upgrade path. Normally, reinstalling software very seldom offers a solution with linux... however, in this case it may be worthwhile trying an unconditional update of Plasma/KDE.

    Using YaST2 - YaST Software Management:

    From the "Patterns" tab (if it's not shown, add via the "View" dropdown menu), select the pattern "KDE Plasma 5 Desktop ...", in the right pane, right click to bring up the context menu, select "All in this list", followed by "Update unconditionally".

    Then try printing...

    If still problematic, repeat the process for the pattern "KDE Applications..."

    And once more see if that has effected a cure, although I'm tending to think it unlikely.


    I'm sorry, but at this point I'm at a loss as to any further constructive suggestions.

    Your options would be to wait and see if any other advice is offered; consider a fresh install of 15.1, keeping your existing home directory; file a bug report against kate (although it affects other KDE apps), which, if you could include the full debug backtrace, may at least result in a KDE developer offering further thoughts, even if it's not a bug per se.

    Thanks for your help! I guess I just fixed it, it appears that all this trouble was caused by a broken PPD file that I was using (it was provided by the printer manufacturer and worked fine with 42.3 though). It looks like there was a mismatch between the name of a definition and the name of its default option, I fixed it, so that the edited PPD file passes the cupstestppd check, and the printing seems to be working fine now. The printer Properties -> Advanced tab is also working fine.

    As a final thought on this...

    I would expect Qt/KDE print routines to have more robust error handling in the case of a "faulty" PPD file, so the end application attempting to print doesn't crash/segfault, as was the case here.

    It may be worth a bug report, probably against "kate", whose developers can assign it upstream as needed.
