Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

Manuskript is always crashing on me unexpectedly. It is apparently random, sometimes I can work in my file for minutes without anything going on, others crashing very shortly upon opening.

The only consistent action I have found to always crash the program is upon hovering the close button. Some times it has also crashed when I press a key such as Shift or Ctrl, but I am not sure that is the cause.

This is my output on terminal:

$ manuskript
/usr/share/manuskript/manuskript/main.py:104: SyntaxWarning: "is not" with a literal. Did you mean "!="?

Could someone lend me a hand here? Is it some personal configuration of mine that is causing this? If so, how should I go on to test it?

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

Looks like it's not  a new error but has been present for a long time https://github.com/olivierkes/manuskript/issues/450

Icon theme "NumixMsk" not found.

The PKGBUILD package() function copies files for that icon theme to a location manuskript doesn't seem to check

cp -r manuskript icons i18n sample-projects resources "$pkgdir/usr/share/manuskript/"

There are other lines in prepare() that look weird to me, I also wonder why the repo package needs a manuskript.appdata.xml file.


The manuskript-git PKGBUILD in aur looks ...  cleaner .

mepqfilho, for testing purposes I suggest :
remove repo manuskript package
git clone manuskript-git
build it with makepkg
install with pacman -U
Test manuskript-git


If you're not familiar with AUR packages, check https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ar … Repository

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

manuskript-git incurs in the same error, unfortunately. In fact, I had the git version installed first and I thought it was crashing because I was using an unstable version. Seems I will have to live with this bug.

On the application's repository, the last commit was made back in April. Has this application been abandoned?

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

Hard to tell,
Have you tried downloading the source into some-dir directory under $HOME , cd'ing to some-dir and there executing bin/manuskript ?


If that works we'll know the problem is with packaging.

That seems to mirror the upstream create_deb.sh script, so it shouldn't be completely wrong.

Yeah, even through bin/manuskript it will crash due to the NumixMsk error. The executable is found under this:

$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/manuskript-git.git
cd manuskript-git
makepkg -si
cd pkg/manuskript-git/usr
bin/manuskript

So basically sit and wait?

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

Guess I was vague because that's not what I wanted you to test.

- verify you have installed the dependencies mentioned in the PKGBUILD
- create a directory test-manuskript and cd into it
- use git to clone https://github.com/olivierkes/manuskript.git
- cd into manuskript directory
- execute bin/manuskript
- try to crash it
- post output

Here we go, only a few new lines of warning while crashing:

It may not solve the issue, but try installing nuspell package.

If you start with a freshly created project, can you crash manuskript also ?

As expected, Nuspell didn't change the outcome.

Creating a new project as well doesn't make a difference:

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

I've checked on my own system and am not able to crash manuskript there.
my output differs from yours in 2 ways

Different translation

Preferred translation: ['en-US'] (based on available ui languages)
Using the builtin translation.

also no messages from qpainter like this

QPainter::begin: Paint device returned engine == 0, type: 2

Let's start with checking locale .

post

$ locale
$ localedef --list-archive
$ localectl list-locales

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

My locale is indeed en_GB, but I also include en_US should any packages have no support for other locales:

$ locale
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

$ localedef --list-archive
en_GB.utf8
en_US.utf8
ja_JP.utf8
pt_BR.utf8

$ localectl list-locales
en_GB.UTF-8
en_US.UTF-8
ja_JP.UTF-8
pt_BR.UTF-8

But since Manuskript does recognise en_GB, it seems more like a bug, doesn't it?

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

If the language is the cause of the crash, that's definitely a bug .

Try

LC_ALL=en_US bin/manuskript

And I didn't know you could simply set the locale for an application on the terminal! That's actually quite interesting.

Re: Manuskript crashing unexpectedly

The messages appear harmless but are a bit weird.

For now it looks like locale / language are not causing the issue.

post

$ pacman -Qi python-pyqt5

are you using python Virtual Environment, pip , anaconda or other non-standard python stuff ?

What WM/DE are you using ?





P.S.

And I didn't know you could simply set the locale for an application on the terminal! That's actually quite interesting.

I noticed you enabled ja_JP.UTF-8 and that reminded me of the time I had to run a program made by japanese programmers that constantly failed to run on my system but not on that of co-workers.
After lots of checking it became clear that although the program supported many languages upon initialisation it needed some stuff unique to the japanese language.
Running the program  with LC_ALL=ja_JP was the workaround to get it running.

I should have brought this up earlier, but anyways I'm using KDE Plasma 5.20 and I'm also use PIP from time to time to tinker with some stuff in Python (always with the --user option to avoid conflicts on root).
