XnViewMP 96.3 not loading in Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon

Post by DanPF » Fri Jun 26, 2020 9:57 pm

I have seen several reports in various forums (but strangely not here) that XnVMP not starting in the recent release of Linux Min 20. I cant verify this as I dare not upgrade if this software wont work, as it is essential to my project. Has anyone here been successful in upgrading and loading XnVMP in Mint 20 Cinnamon?

EDIT:
I found someone helpful at least put up an error message - Of course this might be a Mint issue and not XnVmp

"Also , running XnViewMP (the most recent version 0.69.2 downloaded from the author’s site as a deb) fails with:

qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin
Segmentation fault (core dumped)"

Thanks Dan

Hi,
I just managed to try this in the Live Usb environment. Install from the .deb goes just fine but it will not launch giving me the same error message as above. I would really appreciate some help here as Ver 20 of Mint has something that I would like, so it would be a pity if I could not upgrade.

I found in the new repos there is a Flatpack version (93.1) which does work. This indicates to me that something in the later versions has caused this issue rather than LM20?

Last post - sorry for the drip feed of info,

I have just found that the AppImage file does run in LM20 Cinnamon. So I am confused what the AppImage contains that the LM20 system does not provide natively?

if you use export QT_DEBUG_PLUGINS=1 in a terminal, what do you see when executing XnView?

I loaded the 64bit deb file from your web Home page in a USB Live session.

opened a terminal and typed in QT_DEBUG_PLUGINS=1 the result was the same as others have reported

qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I hope that helps you.

Ok, Done, again only in the ISO USB live environment:

I deleted libqgtk2style.so from
/opt/XnView/lib/styles/

Running the program from the terminal It loads fine now. I was not able to test for a dark theme or view anything due to time constraints - but a brief look showed all ok. The terminal response was

Some old version of libfreetype started getting shipped in 0.95.
libfreetype depends on libfontconfig, but since libfontconfig is not provided in the archive and the system , we need to remove this old libfreetype version so that Xnview uses the system newer libfreetype.

sudo rm /opt/lib/XnView/libfreetype.so

Tip from AUR Archlinux
Working perfectly
