Hey! This is my first time here on the forum.
I’m trying to build GDevelop to see how easily I can help contributing for it on GitHub, but I’m having what it looks like a complete newbie mistake. I followed the instructions as they were, but every time I run the built GDevelop and after “starting” a new project, GDevelop instantly crashes. I’ve got no idea what is happening; at first I thought it would be read/writing permissions, but even after changing it it looks the same, as when I click again on the program it shows the message “Can’t open file ‘/tmp/GameDevelopRunning.log’ (error 13: Permission Denied)”.
On the terminal, the message shown just before the crash is:
(GDIDE:28420): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_window_resize: assertion ‘width > 0’ failed
Sending analytics data…done (201)
The program ‘GDIDE’ received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was ‘BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)’.
(Details: serial 48 error_code 10 request_code 2 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
I’m completely clueless on what it can possibly be. Is it a permission setting that I didn’t configured correctly? I just followed the steps shown on the wiki.
BTW, my intention on building GDevelop was just trying to fix the third party extensions link; it currently goes to a 404 page because it doesn’t have a ‘wiki.’ at its beginning. It is a very newbie correction, but hopefully it would be the first of many hahaha.
