Have you tried re-compiling/re-installing Ipe after the last time you updated the system?

Using this last version in Arch and Manjaro triggers a lot of IPE crashes.

It might be related to the interaction between IPE and LaTex.

Please see these issues:

It's been on my to-do list. Your message came at just the right time.

Wow that was fast! Thanks for your responsiveness :)

foxcub commented on 2023-05-07 15:47 (UTC)

Thanks for the nudge. Updated, although I needed different changes in config.patch.

[EDIT] I copied the wrong config.patch in my initial message, sorry for that

The remote url for downloading the IPE sources seems outdated (I get a 404). I suggest upgrading to IPE 7.2.27 using the following changes. As a side effect we get to use the latest versions of qt and lua, thus getting rid of the AUR qt5-qtspell package.

Rebuilding is usually the first thing to try when you find something doesn't work as expected anymore. When using AUR packages, you as the user are responsible for checking which packages are impacted by library changes.

@runical thanks, rebuilding also solves the problem (using yay I did a cleanBuild)

runical commented on 2021-12-31 13:42 (UTC)

@d1nuc0m, rebuilding the package also solves the problem. I built the package in a clean chroot and it launches just fine.

GSL package has been updated, so it doesn't provide anymore /usr/lib/ IPE then fails to start. A temporary workaround might be symlinking to (the current GSL lib version).
