#1

Hi,

I’m beguinner on Synfig. My OS is Kubuntu 16.04 and my version Synfig Studio is 1.0.2. I worked during 2 hours creating my project and I don’t know why Synfig crashes when I click play.
I joined the file

Hi and welcome here,
tested ok with 1.0.2 under Windows.
Beware, newer versions of Synfig use a slightly different file format, then it makes crash 1.1.11 :confused:
I would advice you to use a dev version as 1.0.2 is known to be buggy in some points and you will not have necessarilly the possibility to use you 1.0.2 files in newer version.
Cheers

I have the same problem, but it might be oom (out of memory) killer.
Oom killer kills program when memory is low, each program have scale, higher number- program will be kill first.
To change scale/score you need to find pid of synfig:

1.run synfig

2.open terminal and write pidof synfigstudio and you got pid.

3.you can check oom score of synfig by command cat /proc/PID/oom_score oom score is from -17 to 17.

4.to change score you need to write sudo echo X > /proc/PID/oom_adj where X is from -17 to 17 (we want lower so the number must be on minus)

5.and done, you can check if this work by cat /proc/PID/oom_score

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the late answer. I went to finish a project. For finish it, I created several files I didn’t lost of time in recreating the project.
I’m beginning a new project, and after 3 hours of work until my file is corrupted again.
I tried to configure the OOM Killer putting the OOM score to -17, as recommend by Majkel and as it wrote in several documentation. The opening of the corrupted file took long times without success, synfig crash again.

Isn’t it a solution to restore this file of 77,2Ko

So I’m going to do the project from crash in following the same process than before making many backup

Thanks
