Gnome control center crashes

Volker Wysk
Hello.

The gnome control center, which resposible for the system settings,
doesn't work any more on my system. It crashes with a segmentation
fault ("Speicherzugriffsfehler"):

desktop ~ $ LANG=C gnome-control-center
Speicherzugriffsfehler (Speicherabzug geschrieben)

I've already tried reinstalling it, but that doesn't help. :-(

Any ideas?

Greetings,
Volker

This is a long shot... if you can get hold of and install the gnome-control-center debug symbols, this might help track down the fault
1. Open up a terminal window
2. gdb gnome-control-center
3. run
4. When control center crashes, type in this command : "backtrace full" and note its output.

I also Googled for this thing and came up with "https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/" which also has info on debugging this system.

HTH,


Ian

PS: It's a Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS system.

I've done a quick try to build gnome-control-center from the sources,
but I ran into multiple problems.

The package gnome-control-center-dbgsym is mentioned somewhere. It
ought to contain the debug symbols, but it isn't available in the
package repositories.

I managed to install the debug symbols. I found the package here:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/bionic/+package/gnome-control-center-dbgsym

Now what to do with it? Inspect the source code? I have taken a look in
the source code at panels/info/cc-info-overview-panel.c. There are
hardly any comments...

Re: Gnome control center crashes

Hi Volker,

That backtrace is invaluable to any of the GNOME developers... it seems to me there is a memory handling bug, quite possibly some heap memory is being free'd but something went Really Wrong. The heap might be corrupt. The memory that it is trying to free might already have been free'd. The pointer to the memory might be corrupt.

Most likey is something on Volker's system "broken" in a way that is causing
GNOME to go south. Probably a bad configuration file, either a configuation
parameter is out of range or something.  One option is to move GNOME's
configuration away -- maybe renaming ~/.config to something else and seeing if
that cures things.

Definately. The backtrace should provide a clue (to the GNOME developers) as
to what is not being handled. Packages like GNOME should tolerate "broken"
configuration files, in that it should automagically fix them or ignore
improper or impossible configuration options (eg setting a window geometry to
a negative size, etc.).

I've filed it as a bug report:

I've looked for gnome configuration files in ~/.config. There is gnome-
control-center, gnome-session and gnome-initial-setup-done with "gnome"
in the name. But none of it makes gnome-control-center run again, when
moved out of the way. I've also tried systemsettingsrc und update-
notifier.

Do you have any idea of what config files might be relevant? I don't
want to move the entire ~/.config, because this could possibly break
things.


Cheers,
Volker

Hi,

for Gnome more relevant than anything else in either .local or .config
might be .config/dconf/user.

Take a look if dconf contains a schema, that seems to be relevant by
running

  gsettings list-schemas | grep gnome

If there should be a schema that might be relevant backup
.config/dconf/user and after that run

  gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.RELEVANT.SCHEMA

Regards,
Ralf

I'd just create a new user, log in as that, if it works you know there
is something with the config ... thats usually quicker and less
intrusive that fiddling around with your own config files ...

... and deleting the test user isnt hard either...

You're right. I'll do that.

I've moved that away, and now gnome-control-center works again. The
"user" file is automatically regenerated. Many thanks! :-)

consider to move it back, try to find the responsible schema and just
reset this schema, since dconf contains the config for many apps.

Note, I don't use Gnome, Mate, Cinnamon or any desktop environment at
all, but some apps I'm using and several apps I installed for comparison
are configured by dconf. For your GNOME install it might be a lot more
apps.

The name of the schema is org.gnome.ControlCenter. Resetting only this
one is sufficient to fix the gnome-control-center crash:

gsettings reset-recursively org.gnome.ControlCenter

The crash appears when choosing "Details" in the list to the left of
the Gnome Control Center. When doing so, "Details" becomes the last
choosen panel, and is opened automatically when starting gnome-control-
center again. This then causes the crash to occur again, this time
immediately.

So, knowing that, I have a gnome-control-center which works, except for
the menu item "Details", which causes a crash.

Sebastien Bacher, who is investigating the bug, wrote on Launchpad, at
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-control-center/+bug/1845931:

-----snip-----
The issue looks like the same as
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-control-center/issues/285

Looking at the Depends attachement,

libglib2.0-0 2.60.0-1ubuntu0.1~ubuntu18.04.1~ppa1 [origin: unknown]

That's likely you issue, you are using an outdated libglib from a ppa
which doesn't include the fix for that issue
-----snip-----  

So now I'm wondering if I can install a newer version of libglib2.0, in
order to fix this. My system is bionic 18.04.3 LTS. My version of that

libglib2.0-0:amd64 2.60.0-1ubuntu0.1~ubuntu18.04.1~ppa1 newer than

The following page on packages.ubuntu.com lists available versions of
libglib2.0:

There the following versions (disco and eoan), which are newer than my
version, are mentioned:

(my version):  2.60.0-1ubuntu0.1~ubuntu18.04.1~ppa1
disco-updates: 2.60.4-0ubuntu0.19.04.1
eoan:          2.62.0-1

Is it possible to use one of those, or would I nuke my system, if i
tried?

Bye
Volker

Yes, but it doesn't mean that 2.56.4-0ubuntu0.18.04.4 isn't patched and
regarding some pitfalls maybe more up to date, than your version from a
third party repository.

I guess the hint "[security]" tells us something, see
https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/libglib2.0-0
( https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic-updates/libglib2.0-0 ).

Take a look at the changelog,
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/glib2.0/glib2.0_2.56.4-0ubuntu0.18.04.4.debian.tar.xz
, it contains several security related fixes, but also several
backport patches. I didn't check, if your issue is addressed, too. It's
up to you.

packages.u.c is really not the best source to look for packages, while
rhonda does actually a good job to screen-scrape the info off
launchpad, better use the authoritative page on launchpad itself that
is directly connected to the archive and build service (where the data
for packages.u.c coms from):

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glib2.0

the fact that you ended up with a "newer" version points out that you
seem to have/had some PPA enabled that you should make sure to have
disabled first, before re-installing/over-installing the correct
libglib from the archive ...

the changelog is at:

http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/main/g/glib2.0/glib2.0_2.5
6.4-0ubuntu0.18.04.4/changelog

(just check the versions between 2.56.1-2ubuntu1 and the top) 
it shows that there have been three SRUs (stable release updates (the
ones that just say "bionic" next to the version string) and along with
that another 3 security releases (the "bionic-security" ones) ...
