I am very new user and played with the gadgets and modules, and now or maybe even before, Midori keeps crashing. Every two or three minutes while using it crashes. It no longer appears on the shelf? Task bar in windows and i have to start it from the menu. There is one error log, but it says there was no error message.  


Error Signal Information:
midori  was interrupted by a Segmentation Fault.
Output Data:
There was no output
Error Logs:
There was no error message
this is a machine i built with a gigabyte ga f2a88 xm d3hp mother board and an SSD 120 gb - I dont know how to bring up the infor on bodhi linux to tell you more right now. ^.^)) This is also the first machine i built by myself with all new parts. 
I love Bodhi linux and want to learn to use it so i can recommend it to my customers that don't like windows 10 ^.^))  
I actually started to become a member and it crashed in the middle of doing that. It doens't seem to happen at a certain time or when i click on something specific.
What can i do to make Midori happy again?
~Roadplug ^.^))

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I also suffer from occasional crashes with Midori, though not as often as every two or three minutes. It's one reason why I prefer Firefox, which is rock solid.

I didn't know i could use firefox on bodhi linux - Its what i use on everything else - I will figure out how to get that ^.^)) Thanks very much for commenting!

I would like to use Midori too, as it is the one that comes with Bodhi, but until i learn more about this I might not be able to.

i am installing firefox now. There are other odd things going on. If i have to reinstall is there a way to do it without having to mess with partitions and chancing the destruction of other operating systems?

Something to consider if you have issues with a GUI program in the future. Just start it from the command line. Open Terminology (Start > Applications > System Tools > Terminology or Windows Key + Spacebar and type terminology) and then probably something like type midori and hit enter. Leave the command prompt open while you use midori to see what kinds of errors appear if/when it crashes. As bodhi is based on Ubuntu, you should be able to attempt to find answers by searching for your problem and instead of bodhi, if nothing appears with that search, look for ubuntu in connection with your problem.

The command prompt also offers TAB autocomplete so, you can type mid and then hit TAB and if there is only one option the word/command will autocomplete. If nothing appears from a single TAB, you will need to hit it twice in rapid succession to know if there are multiple or zero possible completions for your command. To experience this, you could simply type m and then hit TAB TAB, you will get a whole list of commands that start with m. Also, the command line interface is case sensitive, so, m and M are two different characters. If you wanted to see what possible commands there are, you could always type cat /usr/bin > binaries.txt and then open the text file with your preferred document viewer. :)

I could go on and on, but, this should be more than enough to keep you entertained for a few hours. :D

Was this a completely new build? 


If so, you may want to run some memory tests and burn-in/benchmarks to see if everything (hardware) is solid.  I used to build professionally - sometimes you get lemon parts that will spit out random errors/freezes/crashes/etc - best to catch those early and get items RMA'd before it is too late!  Make sure everything is seated properly, etc.


Searching online should show you some bootable utilities to play on in a live environment.  Otherwise, trying to re-install after a MD5 checksum your install media may not be a bad idea.  Be sure to use a quality thumb drive/flash drive to install from as well, as cheapo media can cause issues sometimes.

Midori is designed with crashing as an unspoken objective. It is in version 0.5.11 after all i.e. it is not even complete as a browser. Still, it is one of the several open source products that do Webkit justice, I like Webkit very much but I never figured out the environment. Besides, Midori and the Duckduckgo browser is one way in which these non profiteering start ups like Bodhi Linux monetise. Assuming you have installed Firefox which also comes with Ubuntu, you probably notice that it is missing some support of certain video formats. I have no comments about Windows 10 at this juncture since like Bodhi Linux, lots of folks on Windows 10 actually got it as a free upgrade.
