Description Cyp 2018-03-13 15:03:12 UTC
All available un-hard-masked versions of app-office/gnucash (2.7.4-r1 and 2.7.5) are currently completely unusable, as they crash consistently when doing almost anything, such as entering a number, pressing Ctrl or pressing Alt.

Updating from x11-libs/gtk+-3.22.19 to -3.22.26 doesn't help, no other versions of x11-libs/gtk+:3 are available. Recompiling gnucash after updating gtk+ doesn't help.

Reported elsewhere, x11-libs/gtk+:3 is assigned the blame:

Comment 1 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2018-03-13 22:03:31 UTC
Based on the external links, my first question would be - what input method do you use? Like any ibus stuff going or, or just your usual latin?
Comment 2 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2018-03-13 22:04:01 UTC
Also would be good to know what version of wxGTK:3.0-gtk3 you have installed
Comment 3 Cyp 2018-03-14 07:17:12 UTC
I think it's the normal input method, whatever that is. I don't have ibus installed. I have a .XCompose file, but renaming it and starting gnucash didn't make a difference.

Doing “echo $GTK_IM_MODULE” gives “xim”.

Installed x11-libs/wxGTK:3.0-gtk3 is 3.0.3-r300, which is currently the only available version. I tried recompiling it in case – didn't help, though.
Comment 4 Cyp 2018-03-14 07:24:49 UTC
(In reply to Cyp from comment #3)
> Doing “echo $GTK_IM_MODULE” gives “xim”.

Running “GTK_IM_MODULE='' gnucash” seems to suppress the crash.

grepping /etc finds
/etc/env.d/99local:export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim

I think that might have had something to do with fixing the compose key in openoffice, don't remember.
Comment 5 Aaron W. Swenson gentoo-dev 2018-03-22 11:22:53 UTC
Anything I've been able to find regarding xim indicates that it was already obsolete years ago[1].

You could give app-i18n/uim a go, and see how that works out for you. As I understand it, uim supports the .XCompose file.

Comment 6 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2018-03-25 08:09:35 UTC
You shouldn't need any of that with gtk3.

I believe this is the default method, in lack of any overrides via the envvar (and almost certainly is, as the new emoji stuff comes by default via there):

https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkIMContextSimple.html
Comment 7 Bodo Graumann 2018-06-24 13:14:36 UTC
I have been experiencing the same issue.
My tests have confirmed, that it is caused by this setting:

> export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim

The reason I have this setting, is to allow complex compose key sequences in gtk+:2 applications. Without them the official firefox binary would warn:
> [...] The max number of sequences is 7: <Multi_key> <u> <u> <KP_2> <KP_7> <KP_1> <KP_3> <space> : "✓" U2713 # CHECK MARK
See also https://wiki.neo-layout.org/ticket/100 (german).

I can also confirm that installing app-i18n/uim and setting
> export GTK_IM_MODULE=uim
is a suitable work-around. It allows the usage of long compose sequences and it does not cause gnucash to crash.

It is also true, that the long compose sequences from .XCompose work out-of-the-box in gtk+:3 applications. For the time being we still have to content with some gtk+:2 applications though.

Can somebody please add https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/issues/61 as upstream URL. It gets easily overlooked in the report above.
Comment 8 Aaron W. Swenson gentoo-dev 2020-05-21 13:54:18 UTC
Upstream has determined the bug lies in GTK.
Comment 9 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2020-05-21 14:10:34 UTC
I wouldn't expect any solution anytime soon, if ever. The "fix" is to stop using xim.
