Public bug reported:
Since upgrading Kubuntu from 12.10 to 13.04, plasma-desktop has crashed repeatedly. I have a few crashes here or there (every week or 2) in 12.10 (especially when using the comics widget), but since upgrading, it crashes whenever I:
- switch application windows
- switch desktops
- change tabs in firefox
- access any desktop widget
I have removed as many of the desktop widgets that I can to eliminate them. I still have:
- A standard panel
-- KDE Application Launcher
-- Show Desktop
-- Task Manager
-- System Tray
-- Digital Clock
I have NOT been able to fill out an automated crash report, as the
desktop crashes and restarts when I try an open the crash reporter. I
can force a crash every time by trying to add/remove/modify any widget.
I have run plasma-desktop from terminal and this is the output I get
when it crashes:
KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/bin/plasma-desktop from kdeinit
KCrash: Application 'plasma-desktop' crashing...
KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/drkonqi from kdeinit
The full terminal output is uploaded as the attachment "terminalOutput.txt".
kdm.log is empty
apport.log is attached
I have never been able to get the debugging symbols for plasma-desktop
to install. Everytime I try to do it via the crash handler, it says
they install, then sends me back to saying I need to install them
(repeat in endless loop). If someone can tell me the package name and
repository, I will install them and try to run the crash handler again.
If there is anything else I can provide, please let me know.
** Affects: kde-workspace (Ubuntu)
