A soon as I launch Nicotine Plus it crashes. I didn't have this problem ever before with Ubuntu 16.04 or 16.10 and it also worked fine after I installed 17.04 two weeks ago. I uninstalled it and re-installed many times from the Software Center, tried using a .deb file etc but can't get it to work. Could anyone help?

  • Could you please try to rename the ~/.nicotine directory with the per-user configuration and try to run the application again? Thanks. – David Foerster Jun 13 '17 at 12:32

I had the same same problem and fixed it by:

  1. Uninstalling nicotine-plus
  2. Deleting the .nicotine folder (notice the .) from my home directory
  3. Reinstalling nicotine-plus again

And voilà, it's running again!

  • Step 2 probably would have been enough. – David Foerster Jun 13 '17 at 12:33
  • Thank you for your reply, I actually installed SoulseekQt for LInux which is much better in my opinion, at least as far as search results are concerned. – Nekrophagos Jun 14 '17 at 18:15
