Getting crash when adding a WebView to my Page

  • I am trying to add an Ubuntu.Web.WebView to a test app based off the clickable ut-app-cmake-template from the clickable getting started page. This gave me a simple hello world app. Now I am trying to add a WebView.
    This gives me:

    Wondered if anyone knew what I was doing wrong, or what I should add to get around this?

    Thanks for your consideration.

  • Hi @mungorae ,
    as test i have created a sample app with clickable - -init and template [2]: cmake - C++/QML App, added a WebView like your one and using "clickable --desktop" i have no issues (i have only removed import Ubuntu.Connectivity 1.0 ).
    But, looking around i have found this:
    Seems you are the author of that question... As you say in the question you are building/running an App for exenial (16.04) but in your manifest file you have: "policy_version": 1.3 which is a wrong value.
    Look here for info about how to update manifest and apparmor files to build app for xenial:
    Then try with: "clickable - -xenial" or "clickable --xenial --desktop"
    I'm not sure this solve the issues but i hope can help :)

  • haha yeh I am indeed the author of that question. Hadn't found this forum at that time :)

    Thank you for your reply @fulvio.
    So I updated my policy version and changed the framework as per the helpful post you linked to. However I do still seem to be getting the same error. My policy file now looks like:

        "policy_groups": [                                                                                                                                                                                         
        "policy_version": 16.04                                                                                                                                                                                    

    I am using clickable ---k 16.04 to run it on a Nexus 5 device.

    From that post I can see mention of a click-review tool, so I installed that and tried to fix any problems. It wanted me to remove debug from policy, so I did that. Now it tells me:

     - lint:architecture_specified_needed
            Could not find compiled binaries for architecture 'armhf'
    build/ FAIL

    Maybe that has got something to do with my crash.

    If its any help the output of clickable -k 16.04 is

    Interesting that you got it working, though I am deploying to device rather than to desktop.

  • @mungorae please see this to get the full picture of what's going to happen :)

  • Hi @mungorae
    to run the application (not deploy it) on desktop try a:
    clickable - -xenial - -desktop
    (or: clickable - -desktop )
    should works (See Getting started section:
    Looking at your last posted output, your app is package successfully as .click package and deployed on your connected phone; so that should run also on desktop.
    (Note: you can RUN the app on the desktop without any device connected; but you can't deploy it on desktop; ".click" package is not supported is only for mobile device).
