Summary0000860: Lots of crash saying that is due to signal 11
DescriptionMany times I tried to append a template of a .sla file, and scribus crashes. There were other times that I clicked in a button and the same message was show up.
Steps To ReproduceTry to append a template from another .sla file, it doesn´t crash all the time, but frequently.
Additional InformationThis crash due to signal 11 is happening a lot with me, and I still don´t know why exactly the error occurs. I also was unable to open a file that I created ´cause everytime that Scribus tries to load it, it crashes.
TagsNo tags attached.

My qt version is -3.3.2-1, my distro is the Arch Linux (
And CBradney, what do u mean with "sample files"? To send you some .sla files that have crashed?
Guys, changing a little the topic, I liked a lot Scribus, the program is very good and I used it in order to make a manual of DTP in my university. Thanks to you, I did the whole work using gnu-linux.

Hi Rafael. Glad to hear you are having success with Scribus.

Yes please upload some sample sla files or email them to me at if they are large (more than a 100kb).

Are you able to test with CVS? Instructions are on under Documentation.

Note.. if you test with CVS, it will change the documents and you wont be able to go back to a previous version, so either keep a backup or stay with CVS until we release the next version.

Ok guys, I'll send from my home some .sla files. I'll access cvs from my work, 'cause at home I have a winmodem not supported by linux.

Here are the files. When trying to append a template from another file, Scribus crashes due to signal 11.

Tested creating 2 new docs with just "Normal" template, all pages blank and template blank. Crash doesnt occur. Either the problem relates to FONT tags which are in these docs, or theres a problem with the docs.

Hi Cbradney, u have said that the error doesn´t occurs when the template is blank, but have u tested with an template that contains objects? In my case, the template that I tried to append has only a gray shape. And the error occurs in Arch Linux and also in Mandrake Linux

This bug is fixed in CVS. Yes, we tested with your templates that have content. You will need to update to CVS to see this fix. Please read Documentation on if you dont know how to build CVS.

Tested with users files, all is OK. User doesnt run CVS. Closing.
