Backtrace of crash
Description of problem:
When using Skype 126.96.36.199 if GTK+ style is selected Skype crashes. This happened after a recent update to qt-x11-4.6.2-3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time since update
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Skype
2. Open options
3. Choose style -> GTK+
If (like me) you previously had GTK+ as a saved setting, Skype crashes upon startup.
GDB backtrace attached.
QGtkStyle has been part of Qt since 4.5, reassigning.
The backtrace as is is not very helpful as it does not contain any debugging information. Please install qt-debuginfo.
I also wonder if this bug can be reproduced with anything non-proprietary.
I tried to install qt-debuginfo but debuginfo-install doesn't seem to be able to install 32bit debugging symbols on a x86_64 installation. Any way of doing this without downloading lots of RPMs manually?
You probably only want/need qt-debuginfo.i686 initially
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the reporter's distribution.
Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information.
Closing as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Fedora Bugzappers volunteer triage team
For reference if anyone else has this problem, I have done a quick test and this crash still happens in fresh (updated) F13 installation but I no longer use Skype on Fedora in production so does not affect me any more.
Found the cause today. gtk2-engines.i686 was not installed. Installing this stops the crashing.
