Albert broken after Update to 0.14.15
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Albert doesn't work after last update to 0.14.15

At the beginning, it seems to work fine, on the first start, everything works as expected.
But on the second start it doesn't work anymore: The program will not start and in Console, I see it stopping with following error:

08:39:23 [WARN] Failed loading plugin: /usr/lib64/albert/plugins/libwidgetboxmodel.so [Cannot load library /usr/lib64/albert/plugins/libwidgetboxmodel.so: (/usr/lib64/albert/plugins/libwidgetboxmodel.so: undefined symbol: XShapeQueryExtension)]
08:39:23 [FATAL] Failed loading frontend  --  [(null)]

or with QML-Frontend selected in Albert-Settings:

08:34:12 [WARN] Failed loading plugin: /usr/lib64/albert/plugins/libqmlboxmodel.so [Cannot load library /usr/lib64/albert/plugins/libqmlboxmodel.so: (/usr/lib64/albert/plugins/libqmlboxmodel.so: undefined symbol: XShapeQueryExtension)]
08:34:12 [FATAL] Failed loading frontend  --  [(null)]

If I delete ~/.config/albert it will start again, but again only the first time with the same error on the next start.

I'm also having this issue. It's really disrupting my workflow, as I use Albert to open pretty much everything. >~<

If I delete ~/.config/albert it will start again, but again only the first time with the same error on the next start.

I can't even open it once after deleting my config. It gives me the "First time opening" prompt but it breaks after selecting any option.

joebonrichie moved this task from Backlog to Package Fixes on the Software board.

so basically albert should be linking against libXext.so but it's not

@Snuggle roll it back

sudo eopkg install https://packages.solus-project.com/shannon/a/albert/albert-0.13.1-12-1-x86_64.eopkg

The builder needs cleaning before the older version can be rebuilt

@sunnyflunk Thanks! I was looking for a way to rollback, but didn't find this myself... :-)

I concur! Thank you so much! I wasn't aware it was as easy to rollback packages as just finding the appropriate .eopkg file in the archive.

Thanks for letting me know, this'll be useful if anything breaks in the future! ?
(I was only aware of eopkg history, which seemed more like a complete "snapshot" rollback.)

I'm hitting this error as well. Rolling back to 0.13.1 got me up and running again.
