Description northivanastan 2018-04-22 14:27:46 UTC
When loading any app that uses Qtwebengine on Wayland, the application crashes. Possible causes found in the logs are:
-it seems to search for libegl and libgles objects in whatever folder the executable is in (in this case /usr/bin)
-"Requested OpenGL implementation is not supported: 0"
-"qt_qpa_backend is not xcb"
-"stack smashing detected"

It may be possible to work around this by adding symbolic links to /usr/bin, though that might cause other issues.
This bug has been filed against Qt (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-65682) and Archlinux (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/57018) previously, and fixed. However, Fedora is using an older version of Qt that still has this issue.

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2018-04-22 17:43:51 UTC
We are using the latest release of QtWebEngine. Upstream fixed this only in the unreleased development branch (and does not plan any more releases from the 5.10 release branch, so they do not fix anything in it).

Thanks for clarifying that.  Would it still be possible to implement a fix or workaround in Fedora, or must we wait for the release of Qt 5.11?

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2018-04-22 17:59:07 UTC
If I find the commit that fixes it in 5.11, I can try to backport it. But building qt5-qtwebengine and qt5-qtwebengine-freeworld always takes days.

*** Bug 1577284 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 5 northivanastan 2018-05-25 13:02:44 UTC
It seems that Qt 5.11 has been released, with the fix, so Qt components should be updated, including WebEngine, hopefully by the release of Fedora 29

Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2018-05-25 16:39:46 UTC
I will push QtWebEngine 5.11 ASAP. (There are also security fixes.) But there is a lot of work to do with every new QtWebEngine release branch.

Comment 7 northivanastan 2018-06-08 12:28:36 UTC
It seems like Qtwebengine 5.11 is becoming available on rawhide:

I might test if this bug is fixed there.

Comment 8 Kevin Kofler 2018-06-08 12:40:30 UTC
That's just a rebuild of QtWebEngine 5.10.1 for QtBase 5.11.0. Work on QtWebEngine 5.11 is not started yet (due to lack of time).

Comment 9 Jan Kurik 2018-08-14 10:30:34 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.

Comment 10 Pier Luigi Fiorini 2018-09-03 04:02:01 UTC
BTW this happens in Fedora 28 as well, this is the output when launching Falkon.
Same problem with other QtWebEngine browsers such as Liri Browser from sources:

upstream bug claims this is fixed in 5.11, which was released as an update,
