|Issues with Logjam.
||[Dec. 8th, 2008|10:43 pm]
Hello there! First of all let me apologize if this has already been asked somewhere else but I couldn't find it anywhere... Anyway, I downloaded LogJam 2 or 3 weeks ago but only used it once or twice I think. I tried to use it again but I keep getting the same error over and over: Every time I try to run it, it opens and immediately afterwards it terminates. Could you help me solve this? I found it quite useful for my purposes so I'd like to continue using it.|
try running it from within a shell window and seeing what error messages you get to stdout?
Uhhh, that was weird, when I ran it from the terminal, it worked normally... well, if anything comes up I guess I'll come back but for the mean time, thanks! Heheh
Sorry for double post, but just noticed this. If I try to run it from dock, the window appears and immediately closes, if I try to run it with alt + f2 nothing happens, if I run it from the terminal, it opens but this appears:
(process:24909): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid (NULL) pointer instance
(process:24909): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_connect_data: assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed
What OS are you running, and are you running precompiled binaries or did you compile this yourself from source?
I'm using Ubuntu Intrepid, and I used a precompiled binary because I just recently switched to Linux so I don't understand yet how to compile something (and, honestly, haven't tried too hard to)
I'm running Intrepid as well, and I don't have this issue. Not sure why you're having trouble. Are you running regular Ubuntu or one of its variants? (Kubuntu,Xubuntu,Edubuntu)
You say you're using a precompiled binary... did you know that logjam is available in the Ubuntu repositories?
In a terminal, type:
sudo apt-get install logjam
But I would strongly recommend that you get shot of the version you're currently using first.
Actually, now that you mention it, I just remembered I got it via Synaptic, sorry, I have memory issues hahah. As for the environment I'm running Ubuntu but I also have Kubuntu installed (although, due to some issues with it, I never use it).
ah. My first guess is that there's some environment variable logjam needs that's getting set when you run it from within a shell window, but is not getting set when you run it from a menu, or from an icon on your desktop.
I was gone some time so didn't use Logjam, when I did it showed that message I've seem some people complain about but which I hadn't seen, it said something about not having logged for the last 18 days (what use does that have anyway?) That time, Logjam opened without any problem, but the next time I tried to open it, it was even worse! There is no way to open it, if I try to open it through the terminal I only get this error message:
(process:1582): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid (NULL) pointer instance
(process:1582): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_connect_data: assertion `G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed
And the window opens and immediately closes, it's the same with whichever method I know and try.
I tried uninstalling it and to install it with the terminal, it was exactly the same.
