Testing the upgrade to Qt 5.12

    BQ 4.5: Got a crash at startup for sfxr: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/khrnt9xc2R/

    The app crashed? Or the shell? Sfxr seems to work mostly fine on my Nexus 4, though I have noticed a couple issues with the app itself (and I think unrelated to Qt 5.12).

    Crash also for Teleport, messaging app

    Again, are the apps crashing, or the shell?

    Note that in the drawer, i have only 2 app icon columns (scaling 12 in UTTT) and distorted spash icons on several apps.

    Yeah, there seems to be something up with the app drawer column math it seems. Not sure what though, since I'm pretty sure it is untouched.

    How should one go about acquiring the updated packages? Just repeat the process in the original post?

    Mostly. Just do sudo ubports-qa update instead I think (or just sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade after doing the mount commands).

    Yes the app crashed. What do you mean by shell, Lomiri crash and reboot ?



  • @lduboeuf Yes.



  • @dobey I made fix for missing images in checkindicator and spinbox, look https://github.com/ubports/qqc2-suru-style/pull/48/files



  • @dobey said in Testing the upgrade to Qt 5.12:

    Otherwise though, is your rootfs full? Did you already install some other things extra in it perhaps from Ubuntu archive?

    I'll install a fresh image and try again to be sure



  • @dobey

    So, sfxr, messaging-app, teleports still crashes on BQ4.5, drawer icon number columns are fine now. Splash screen icon is shrinked:

  • I tried this on my Nexus 5. Here are my observations (some might have been reported already). Note that I don't have a sim card inserted so that might also a factor in some of these. Also, I used this as my daily driver before so it has plenty of data and may represent an upgrade from an actual daily driver device.

    • Splash image is not displayed correctly
    • App drawer only has 2 columns which was 3 before
    • Phone app and Fluffy Chat crashed when triggering the bottom edge
    • Messaging app opens fine but if you open a thread, the messages are jumbled and not displayed correctly
    • Calculator app opens but seems to fail to actually initialize so it's not interactive/working
    • Clock and Calendar app opens but crashes after a few seconds (I have google and NC calendars synced)
    • Contacts app works fine but dragging the bottom edge only shows the header until the drag is completed.
    • Dekko 2 and TELEports are blank. I have accounts configured.
    • PDFs are blank in Document viewer except in slideshow mode. Libreoffice files crashes the app.
    • Double-tapping in the OSK (cursor mover mode) is quite difficult to trigger.
    • It seems that Qt 5.12 is a bit less forgiving in codes like for example with layouts. My app Palitan has many warning logs and also there are some UIs not displayed which probably caused by those errors/warnings.
    • I also see Type error errors in JS in some apps. Probably related to the known issues with JavaScript which I believe was already discussed somewhere.
    • Honestly, expected a noticeable improvement in the performance but so far it's almost the same and I feel like I actually see more micro stutters but not sure though if I'm observing it right 😅

    This should also be the case in stable/devel already, given the source, but fix is inbound in the 5.12 branch.

    Fix already in.

    Contacts app works fine but dragging the bottom edge only shows the header until the drag is completed.

    Fixed now.

    Double-tapping in the OSK (cursor mover mode) is quite difficult to trigger.

    Seems to be mostly fine here on my Nexus 4, but it seems to get "stuck" after a while, and I don't see anything in the maliit-server log.

    It seems that Qt 5.12 is a bit less forgiving in codes like for example with layouts. My app Palitan has many warning logs and also there are some UIs not displayed which probably caused by those errors/warnings.

    Yes, in general it is a bit stricter. You'll need to fix your app. 🙂

    I also see Type error errors in JS in some apps. Probably related to the known issues with JavaScript which I believe was already discussed somewhere.

    There seems to be a few things that can cause this, but those apps will need to be fixed individually.

    So, sfxr, messaging-app, teleports still crashes on BQ4.5,

    Can you get stack traces? I don't have an e4.5 and they are starting fine here on my nexus 4.

    Thanks.

    He might refer to

  • @CiberSheep said in Testing the upgrade to Qt 5.12:

    Yes. I meant, I don't understand why this doesn't happen in dev, because the Splash.qml was specifying the source size as the same dimensions of the screen. But as I also said, it's fixed now on 5.12 branch too (well building currently).



  • @dobey I see.
    Also to note, if no splash screen is used, the app icon is shown correctly



  • @dobey Let us know when we can do an update and retest stuffs 🙂



  • @dobey said in Testing the upgrade to Qt 5.12:

    Can you get stack traces?

    Which one ?. App logs don't have nothing. I can give the unity8.log but i think it is the same as my initial reply for the sfxr crash. Will do tomorrow if needed

  • @dobey I am still getting one missing column in portrait on OnePlus 3T (getting 3, should 4), in landscape it is fixed now.



  • @lduboeuf I mean, if it's actually crashing, to get a stack trace you need to use gdb. I think you can do clickable debug now to debug remotely.



  • Updates after retesting:

    • Splash image in core apps look good now but it seems that the dimension logic is still different than the current one. My apps that use SVG splash images looks small like it's almost the same size as the icon (i.e. Palitan, Fluffy Chat). They should be displayed bigger.
    • Contacts bottom edge is working properly now.

    Others not mentioned are still the same



  • Today I have:

    • installed RC image (from System Settings)
    • removed some old apps
    • installed Dev image
    • Installed the updagrade

    I got this warning before installing it:

  • I have been testing some apps:
    Work:

    • OpenStore
    • Dialer
    • Address Book
    • Camera
    • Gallery
    • UTTT
    • System Settings
    • Linphone

    Crash after splash:

    • Calendar
    • Calculator
    • Weather
    • Clock

    I did a test with a clickable create qml app. Unconfined opens, confined crashed on start

    The only difference when doing clickable logs is:
    confined:
    Loading module: 'libubuntu_application_api_touch_mirclient.so.3.0.0'

    unconfined:

    Loading module: 'libubuntu_application_api_touch_mirclient.so.3.0.0'
    Creating a QMirClientScreen now
