[SOLVED][XFCE] xfce4-panel crashes when chromium renders certain sites

When I open asian sites (like http://www.youku.com/ ), for some reason my xfce4-panel crashes. Probably any site that has asian symbols would crash the panel.

I started xfce4-panel in a terminal, and it prints the following when it crashes:

xfce4-panel: cairo-scaled-font.c:459: _cairo_scaled_glyph_page_destroy: Assertion `!scaled_font->cache_frozen' failed.
fish: Job 1, “xfce4-panel &” terminated by signal SIGABRT (Abort)

Is this some problem with my fonts? Because I get alot of squares instead of asian symbols.

Re: [SOLVED][XFCE] xfce4-panel crashes when chromium renders certain sites

I am using Chromium, I have every ttf font from the repos installed - including Asian ones, and I am using xfce4 i686.  Opening your page does not crash my panel.  In the task list in the panel the Chromium entry shows Asian characters for the page title.  I would suggest installing all the Asian font glyphs and seeing if that corrects the issue.  Do "pacman -Ss ttf" for a mostly complete list of fonts to install.  On my system EVERY ttf listed in that output is installed.


We all make choices, but in the end, our choices make us.

Thanks a lot, I installed several fonts and the panel is no longer crashing!

Right on, you're welcome.  It may have been either the font missing or the font cache needing to be rebuilt.  Installing a new font usually rebuilds the font cache - whatever: glad it's working for you now! wink

This was happening to me too, but I think it was because of Russian characters.. I've now installed all of the ttf fonts and I hope xfce4-panel stops crashing smile

I had to install ttf-dejavu to fix the crashes.

sudo pacman -S ttf-dejavu
