Problems with KDE apps crashing
I am using KDE 3.1.3 on Debian Sid. I have also used KDE (unsure of the version, but it is in the 2's) In Debian Woody. As well as 3.1 on Slackware. There seems to be a common problem with many KDE components (or I don't have something set up right).
Any KDE component (like Kword, for example) other than Kwrite will crash whenI try to save. Even the simplest of things in Kword, like a document that only contains the word "hi". I can print from Kword, and write a whole book without a crash. But upon save, it is done. The error message says:
Any one else have a problem like this (especially with Kword)? If so, and you fixed it, what did you do? Like I said, the only KDE app that will not crash on save is Kwrite. This crash will happen logged in as user, or as root.....with the same error message, only the program name changes.
xxxx crashed and caused the signal 11 (SIGSEGV)........The application was asked to save its documents
I need gdb in order to generate a backtrace. But I wanted to know if there was an easy fix first, before I go submitting a bug report. (also, This crash happed in Sid, Woody, and Slackware, identical error message) I tried googling the answer, and there was a question identical to mine in another forum, but no one replied to it.
Thanks for reading
