gnome-system-monitor dumps core on Precise/AMD64

Asked by Greg Webber on 2012-08-15

This is a nice tool but I wanted to see if I could add a few extra features (inc. for question "160421 Would like disk activity"). I have gotten myself a launchpad account and downloaded (bzr branch lp:gnome-system-monitor) and built the binary however get this:

gsw@goat:~/bzr/gnome-system-monitor/src$ ./gnome-system-monitor
(gnome-system-monitor:25849): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_get_screen: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed
(gnome-system-monitor:25849): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_screen_get_rgba_visual: assertion `GDK_IS_SCREEN (screen)' failed
(gnome-system-monitor:25849): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_window_set_default_size: assertion `GTK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

(gnome-system-monitor:25849): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_window_add_accel_group: assertion `GTK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I'm a complete Gnome n00b so any assistance would be helpful.

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; apt-cache policy gnome-system-monitor

Thanks

$ lsb_release -a

Try:

Should give you version 3.5

3.4.1 is what I get when I look at the about box in system monitor as invoked from the desktop (ie Dash Home).

When I go back into the bzr copy, do a make clean, run make again and re-run the executable is still get the core dump.

gsw@goat:~/bzr/gnome-system-monitor/src$ ./gnome-system-monitor

I suggest you report a bug

Opened new Bug #1037427. Should have used 'Create bug report' however missed that.
