I don't personally know enough to help you, but I think some extra information might help, e.g.:

- By normally, do you mean within Qt Creator 3.0?
- It's Linux, but what distro?My bad, the topic title was actually helpful. :up:

Arch Linux is a distro.

Manjaro, which I have, is derived from Arch and directly compatible.

I have installed Otter with Yaourt. The package name was otter-browser. I know that Yaourt builds packages but I don't really know what it means to build packages. That's why I use Yaourt.

For me Otter also crashes occasionally, but not messily and not too often. I wish it had Opera's crash management (start-up dialogue after crash).

I'm build from source
qmake-qt5 ../otter.pro
make

and run from build dir ./otter-browser.

Running without config dir .config/otter is normally, but if only I'm tape in address bar google.com and tap "enter", then browser crushed and not run again.

I'm running gdb from command line
bash$ gdb ./otter-browser core.12219

@das-ich, you have to install debug symbols for Qt, but I have no idea how that package is named in Arch...

What is the name of this package in fedora or debian?

Sorry for asking such a silly question, but are you absolutely sure you're using Qt 5.2 and not accidentally e.g. 5.1 or 5.0?

Hi,
I was also affected by this problem and it turned out to be not a bug of Otter Browser, but a faulty plugin in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Check out my comment at this ArchLinux bug report:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/41217

Hope it helps...

@jamar, thanks for sharing this.
Apparently there are again transition issues like when Qt4 was replacing Qt3, hopefully it will end soon, as porting to Qt5 is much easier than porting from Qt3 to Qt4.

Since weekly 52, Otter has a new dependency on Arch and Manjaro, package qt5-multimedia.
