I've been trying to fix this issue for a couple of days. I'm using Ubuntu 17.10.

If I try to execute gnome-control-center, I get a "segmentation fault" message.

If I use strace -e open gnome-control-center I get the following:

open("/usr/share/locale/en_US.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/cogl.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en_US.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/cogl.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

--- SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SEGV_MAPERR, si_addr=NULL} ---

Segmentation fault  

I checked those paths and are empty, I have no idea why. I reconfigure local settings. If I run the same command with sudo, this happens:

Without being able to move from there. Log output is pretty much the same as the command without sudo.

Any ideas how to solve this problem?

  • What desktop do you use? Have you reported bug by apport to launchpad? – N0rbert Apr 2 '18 at 9:26

    Hey, I'm using gnome desktop. I haven't reported the problem as a bug, I'm not sure if it is. It happened after I tried to install some graphic card drivers. – Philippe Delteil Apr 2 '18 at 10:20

    Finally, I gave up and I installed 18.04 beta 2. – Philippe Delteil Apr 7 '18 at 18:27
