Bug #3330

[gwenview]: symbol lookup error: gwenview: undefined symbol:

penaiple - about 1 month ago - . Updated 2 days ago.

% Done:



the latest version of gwenview (22.08.0-1) returns this output instead of running:

[fed@cia ~] ~> gwenview randomstuff/randomimage.jpg 
gwenview: symbol lookup error: gwenview: undefined symbol: _ZN12KNewFileMenu19setWorkingDirectoryERK4QUrl
[fed@cia ~] ~> 

deleting ~/.local/share/gwenview/ does nothing, but downgrading to version 22.07.90-1 solves the problem.
this does not happen on another of my machines that runs plain archlinux, so it might be a problem with dependencies in parabola's repos.

  • Status changed from unconfirmed to info needed
  • Subject changed from gwenview update broken to [gwenview]: symbol lookup error: gwenview: undefined symbol:

i got that error too, on a system which has not been upgraded in a long time - but after upgrading that system, gwenview works as expected

try # pacman -Syyuu

do you have any IgnorePkg ?

any repos enabled, other than: nonsystemd libre core extra community pcr ?

any foreign packages?

my enabled repos are:

gwenview is currently in IgnorePkg, being kept at 22.07.90 to prevent breakage.
kate has a similar problem, but downgrading doesn't fix it:

kate: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN3KIO26createDefaultJobUiDelegateE6QFlagsIN14KJobUiDelegate4FlagEEP7QWidget

it may be interesting to see what you have from nonprism

$ pacman -Qs | grep nonprism


Updated by bill-auger 3 days ago

if it is due to some packages in [nonprism], usually the 'kio' package needs an upgrade - i just tried this on an i686 system, and both gwenview and kate work as expected, with both kio packages

ok got it - the problem exists only for x86 and arm with nonprism enabled - kio_5.98.0 in nonprism fix it

ive pinned nonprism/kio to the version of the other k-things, which should prevent this problem in the future
