Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492115
Some qt (and other) applications can't start after system update
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:08:47 EST
Description of problem:
After system update some applications can't launch. Primarly those which use qt. Standard gnome applications (firefox, gimp etc.) work normally.
Do the system update after March 25, and check if some of the qt applications start. Tested with these applications: Skype, VirtualBox, Lasfm player, Netbeans. Games: TuxRacer, XMoto. These applications can't start.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run sudo yum update.
2. Try launching skype.
Application won't start. You can see it in process list, but there is no visible window shown.
Application would launch.
After update it is still possible to launch these applications using sudo command, so the "sudo skype" would launch skype. But under "su" it won't launch.
The bug is also being discussed at http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=217900
system update included what exactly? (ie, look in /var/log/yum.log for what was updated recently).
related to libX11 update perhaps, see bug #492085 ?
shrug, let's go with 492085, unless evidence shows otherwise...

Yes, it seems the same bug with 492085.
