Hi all!

Maybe this issue has already been treated before, but I have just re-subscribed to the list after a long time. The problem is as follows:

-I've upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to 11.04 (Natty).

I used Debian software here and have encountered upgrade issues over the years so much so that when I do jump major version levels that I usually reinstall if I need a system in a known good state.

-My GNUBG is installed through Ubuntu's repositories (version 0.90+20091206-4build1 as available in Synaptic) and used to work in 10.04.

As Russ pointed out the GNUBG in the repository is old 1.5 years. I could tell you how to build it on Ubuntu if you are so inclined. It's reasonable easy to do even if you aren't a programmer.

-Now, always when trying to run it (typing gnubg -w in shell), it crashes with the following message:

*** buffer overflow detected ***: gnubg terminated

Not good. make sure you have the gnubg-data package installed as well (It should be in Synaptic). One other possibility is that somehow a setting in your gnubg config file is screwing things up. To see if this is the case I recommend this:

- Close down all copies of GNUBG.
- In your home directory there is a subdirectory called .gnubg   and a file in there called gnubgautorc  . I recommend renaming that file to something else like gnubgautorc.bak .
- Try relaunching GNUBG. Do a save settings.

This procedure will force GNUBG into using all defaults. if that works then I recommend just setting up your GNUBG with new settings. If you want to go back to the old settings just copy the backup file back to gnubgautorc .
