fldigi crashes for one user.

OS 13.1 fully updated. I have the fldigi installed from the repository. I have 3 user accounts on the system. fldig crashes on startup for only one user. I have no idea where to look for the problem. can anyone point me in any drection?

I have posted a bug report with fldigi’s devs.

Any and all help appreciated.

Please post what happens. We can not guess that from your vague description that it crashes. I do not know fldigi, but when it is a GUI program, try to start it from a terminal emulator in your GUI session:


and post what it says when crashing.
When it is a CLI program, thenof course you already type the above and can of course post what happens.

BTW, when it is user specific, it might be that there is some problem with a user’s configuration file. Again, I do not know the application, but you could search e.g. for a file called .fldigi in the home directory of that user. When found, delete (or better change it’s name) and try to start fldigi again.

Thank you for your reply. I haved deleted .fldigi which is then regenerated when the program starts. When I start the program form the cli this is the output:

That was the idea, getting a fresh file. But it does not seem to help. Making it more difficult to find the difference between the users that have and haven’t the problem.

Maybe doing this (while waiting here for more comments) might give you a quick answer.

I’ve had a bug report on fedorahosted.org for 2 weeks. I am also in an email conversation witht the openSUSE fldigi package maintainer.
