How to generate a backtrace

Created by Dmitry Kazakov on on 2014-08-28

1) If you are using Krita Lime, install package krita-testing-dbg

2a) If, when crashing, Dr. Konqi shows up, just select second tab with debugging log (backtrace) and send it to the developers.

2b) If Dr. Konqi fails to start, then you need to run krita in the debugger. Type the following commands:

gdb krita

# when Krita crashes, you will see the UI hang-up, just switch to the debugger and type the following command

thread apply all backtrace

# don't forget to press Enter key several times to scroll the whole backtrace (it is several windows long). Copy it and send to the developers.
