Crashes on Load

I am running the latest release candidate on Ubuntu 14.04.  I installed this version to hopefully use the Impress presentations.  I had added a song and played with the live view a little to ensure it worked.  When I tried to bring up an Impress presentation, the program seized and crashed.  When I tried to reopen the application, it now takes over the display of the desktop.  My secondary monitor has a white background with the OpenLP logo.  The main monitor has OpenLP displayed, but I cannot get anything to respond other than to display the menus (which do not disappear when you navigate to another menu).  None of the other applications in Ubuntu appear to function either, though I am able to get the main menu to appear (using CTRL-Esc).  It is as if the live view has taken over the desktop and won't let anything else draw to the screen.

Is there a way to reset the default display from the filesystem or do I need to uninstall and re-install?

Comments

  • I tried uninstalling and re-installing the application, and I still cannot run the software.  How do I reset the settings to default so that the live screen doesn't open on load?
  • Hi Maznoe,

    You can delete the OpenLP data by clearing the data folder at
    ~/.local/share/openlp/
    The config file is usually at .config/OpenLP/OpenLP.conf

    I hope you get your system up and running again!
  • Hi Maznoe,

    I am not using Ubuntu, but Windows.  What I do is to configure OpenLP to show a blank screen on the secondary screen upon launch, so we can work on our primary screen.

    To do this (again this is for Windows), I launch OpenLP, click on Settings >> Configure OpenLP >> Advanced, in the Default Image section, I choose the "Background Color" Black and the "Image File" I leave it as blank (i.e. no entry, no file name).

    That's for upon launch.

    As for "None of the other applications in Ubuntu appear to function either", you may want to verify in Settings >> Configure OpenLP >> General, under Monitors section in "Select monitor for output display", you have selected the correct screen..?  Just to confirm.. :)
  • I'm having a similar sounding problem loading openlp. Sometimes it works fine, other times it hangs on the logo...

    Running Windows 10 and the latest Beta.

  • Yeah--similar deal here.  Basically, each and every action I take in version 2.2 results in an error message and request to send a bug report.  Opening the program, trying to take any action whatsoever in the program, closing the program, you name it. 

  • @BFarmer1980 it looks like a problem we've had with older builds of OpenLP. I recommend you make a backup of your songs database, move the current one to another location, and do a Song Import from OpenLP 2. Make sure you close OpenLP before you do this.
