I am working with Elementary Juno (4.15.0-43-generic on x86_64). Epiphany does not start anymore in the desktop and I get a segmentation fault while starting in the Terminal.

  • Please post the full error message when starting from terminal. – quassy Dec 25 '18 at 23:11
  • I use a terminal in French. It reads like: "Erreur de segmentation." which could be "Segmentation fault". I don't have any "core" file. – Jean-Luc Barras Dec 26 '18 at 8:35
  • In order for this to be useful, you'll need a more thorough error report, along with perhaps a corefile. – Ken Kinder Jan 25 at 18:18

There's no way to debug a crash without a stack trace, so you should first get a stack trace for the crash, with debug symbols for every frame in the trace. Once you have a stack trace, you can report it to the Epiphany developers. See these instructions for how to acquire a quality stacktrace. Unfortunately, this is a bit harder to do in elementary than in other distros, because you must manually identify and install the required debuginfo packages. You know you've succeeded when there are no more ??? frames in the trace. Please take the backtrace with bt full rather than normal bt.

Note that this answer applies to any crashing program, not just Epiphany.
