  1. In case this helps investigating the issue, I decided to run Enpass on the command line as follows: /opt/enpass/Enpass > /tmp/enpass_log 2>&1 & The logfile shows a large number of error messages that say: "QQmlComponent: Created graphical object was not placed in the graphics scene." (this happens as soon as Enpass is started, and some keep appearing later on). I'm wondering if this (and my large number of crashes) could be due to the fact that I use multiple workspaces? (note: workspaces are a standard GNOME feature that Enpass' developers may not be aware of. It's essentially a grouping of windows and your monitor displays one of them at a time). To move a window - such as Enpass' - to another workspace, right-click its titlebar and select "Move to Workspace Down". You can then use Win+PgUp/PgDown to move between workspaces. I typically choose the "Always on Visible Workspace" right-click option for Enpass, since I use it on multiple workspaces. Here's a list of error messages that appear (multiple times) in stdout/stderr while Enpass is running. The first one is by far the most frequent. QQmlComponent: Created graphical object was not placed in the graphics scene. Case insensitive sorting unsupported in the posix collation implementation Numeric mode unsupported in the posix collation implementation QObject::startTimer: Timers cannot have negative intervals This is with Enpass as it's the only post 6.4 version that's stable enough to consider using presently. When Enpass crashes, it typically happens due to a SEGV (segmentation violation), which we could use to dump a memory image (core). Let me know if I can assist analyzing such a core dump although it's obviously not something I could share since it might possibly include clear-text passwords etc.
  2. Can we please have a simple toggle (perhaps under Settings -> Advanced) to "disable integrated crash reporter". Privacy conscious users will certainly appreciate the option too. Background For over a year, Enpass has been less than stable on Linux. I have documented, extensively, the issues faced. Things have improved a little recently with 6.5.0, before worsening again with 6.5.1. In any case, it's still far off with Enpass crashing at least a few times on me daily. This is on "vanilla" Ubuntu LTS (20.04), which has to be the most used desktop Linux distribution. The integrated crash reporter makes a bad situation worse by wasting even more time (up to a few seconds) upon a crash. I have used it to report *hundreds* of crashes and that seems to have made very little difference as to the stability of the product, nor did I ever get any feedback so I strongly suspect that all my reports are going down a great big black hole. Even if they were actually useful, it should be possible to disable it after reporting, say, 5 crashes. Thank you very much.
  3. @rubenJS not to worry, your post in perfectly on topic. What versions of Enpass and Pop_OS are you running? I found that Enpass is the most stable for me on Ubuntu 20.04 (GNOME). This is supposedly a beta version, which you can install by following these instructions. Once you've done this, you can downgrade Enpass, as follows: sudo apt update apt-cache policy enpass # shows all versions available from the repositories sudo apt install enpass= # or whichever other version you'd like to try out sudo apt-mark hold enpass # prevent subsequent automatic upgrades by locking the installed version The last line "holds" enpass to the installed version, so it doesn't get upgraded automatically later. Use the same command with `unhold` if you'd like to try a newer version that will most hopefully fix things before too long...
  4. I'm having to share some passwords with a customer organization that also uses Ubuntu and finding it very hard to recommend Enpass due to the continuous crashes that have been ongoing since the beginning of the year. I noticed that 1Password is moving into the Linux space. I *really*, *really* like Enpass and desperately want to stay with it but the frustration caused by 10+ daily crashes is starting to add up...
  5. Hi @Garima Singh, I got an update to version (beta) and it's *significantly worse* than the previous version ( 6.5.0 would crash about once a day; is back to crashing at least 10 times a day. I've just had a crash, followed by an immediate second crash just after typing the master password. I would strongly advise a rollback of I also looked into the "logs" which I enabled, inside the Enpass app. All I get are a number of "info" entries logging interactions with the WebDav server where my vaults are stored (). They don't look very useful to me but I can send them across if that's helpful. PLEASE can we get the option to disable the automatic crash reporter? (make it default to submit the reports if you like). I can't believe that the 101th crash report I submitted is more useful than the 100 previous ones and this thing makes a bad situation much worse in terms of frustrating one's workflow with Enpass so long as it continues to crash as often.
  6. Hi @Garima Singh, Thanks again for following up. It's really good to see that you care about your Linux users. I have enabled logs and will email support@enpass.io with logs upon the next crash. Here's my answer to your generic questions: Size of database? I have 4 vaults, all synchronized with the iOS mobile version using a local WebDav server. Not sure vault #1: 1.1MB, 324 items, 4 attachments (1.5MB in total); #2: 411kB 165 items, 1 attachment (5kB); #3: 70kB, 14 items, no attachments; #4: 66kB, 12 items, no attachments I run standard Ubuntu 20.04.1, fully up-to-date; Gnome, X11, not Wayland. I run Enpass at system startup. I have to run it with `QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 QT_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTORS=1` (as documented in your support articles) to prevent it from being huge on my screen. One thing I do which might possibly contribute to the issue (?) is using multiple workspaces. I typically set Enpass to be "Always on visible workspace", so it can be invoked from whichever workspace I happen to be working on. Scenarios: Enpass typically crashes when invoked from Firefox (again, standard, up-to-date build, which is currently 80.0.1), when using a hotkey from a login form. The crashes can occur in a variety of scenarios, eg: before I even see the Enpass UI (so Firefox displays the "looking for Enpass app" page; and usually this takes a while and I often but not always get to see the crash reporter) before I interact with the UI; for example while I use the search box to look up an entry just as it's filling out the form and sometimes just after filling out the form. Previously (with v6.4.1) Enpass would crash so often that there were no observable pattern; sometimes it would crash at the start of the day, ie: just after waking up my laptop from ACPI sleep, but this seems to have improved with 6.5.0. So far with v6.5.0, the pattern appears to be related to filling out forms from Firefox. I haven't observed a correlation of crashes with system updates. Locking time? Do you mean Enpass locking? I have the following options enabled: When main window is closed System sleeps System is inactive for 2 minutes I also have the PIN option set I hope this is useful; I'll be sure to follow up with logs as/when Enpass crashes next time. I still think there ought to be an option to switch off the crash reporter; having had to suffer it for over 6 months before 6.5.0 came out was really no fun, I can assure you!
  7. Hi @Garima Singh, Thank you for following up. I suggest we continue in the new thread, which I see you've also commented on: Enpass beta 6.5.0 (701) MUCH more stable but crashes still
  8. Hi there, A massive THANK YOU for the release of beta 6.5.0 for Linux. I have documented the excruciating experience I had with the previous version (6.4.1) on stock Ubuntu 20.04, which was crashing up to 20 times a day on me! As soon as I saw news of the 6.5.0 beta, I didn't hesitate one second. The outcome: it's a massive improvement in stability as it only crashes maybe once a day on average; I probably use Enpass 20-30 times a day on my desktop. Still, once a day is not fully satisfactory; thus my queries: Is there any practical way I can help you debug these issues whilst the beta is being finalized? I've been sending those crash reports; you much have an absolute pile of them from me. Re the crash reports: PLEASE, can we have an option to turn these off? I don't believe the 100th crash report is going to add much value to the 99 before it and when Enpass is having a bad day, having to wait for them to gather their data and click through them increases the frustration manifold.
  9. Hi @Garima Singh, It's been over three months and I still face Enpass crashing several times every day on me on stock Ubuntu 20.04. It's come to the point where I dread having to log on to any website as I know by instinct this will very likely cause a 30+ seconds interruption in my workflow while Enpass takes its time to crash, present me with the crash reporter (have you been getting those???) and finally comes back up... As suggested previously, I'm most happy to help you debug this issue in any practical way. Otherwise I would really appreciate an ETA for a fix. I noticed that the Linux desktop version is a couple of minor versions behind Windows...
  10. @Pratyush Sharma is there a way I can disable the crash reporter please? I suppose that by now you have enough of my reports (must be 50 or so...) and I certainly have enough of having to go through the reporter several times a day, as this only serves to exacerbate the impact on my workflow. Many thanks!
  11. Hi @Pratyush Sharma, I must have submitted at least 20 crash reports with this thread mentioned in the comments over the last couple of weeks; and that's not even all the crashes I encountered. Basically Enpass crashes on average at least 2-3 times a day. Perhaps a couple of specific aspects from my setup that may or may not matter: I have three vaults in my Enpass setup Each is synchronized with a WebDav server. Let me know if you need anything else from me? Happy to run debug versions etc to try and get to the bottom of this if this is helpful.
  12. Hi Pratyush, Thanks a lot for your reply! I have just submitted a crash report that occurred with the typical pattern of invoking Enpass from Firefox - to fill out a login form - using the hotkey. I have included this thread's URL in the crash report and will be repeating this process for a week or so. I hope this method works for you; let me know if you need anything else or a different way of flagging those issues. Cheers!
  13. Hi Enpass team, I have been experiencing very persistent crashes on my Ubuntu 19.10 laptops (stock Ubuntu version with latest updates), including a brand new build installed from scratch quite recently. Typically crashes occur when I try to invoke Enpass from Firefox to fill out some login details using the shortcut key; however since upgrading to, they've also started to occur without any interaction: I just had it SEGV on me while my session was locked (an Apport notification popped up on the lock screen). I think those crashes started occurring with version 6.2 or thereabout. They were definitely already a feature with 6.3. I've been an avid Linux Enpass user since June 2016 and it had been a pretty solid experience until then. I am submitting the crash report feedback when prompted by your integrated reporter - must have done so at least 15 times over the past 2 months - but not the Apport ones for obvious reasons (core dumps). Today's - while my laptop was locked - has this: SegvAnalysis: Segfault happened at: 0x536329: mov 0x48(%rbp),%r8 PC (0x00536329) ok source "0x48(%rbp)" (0x00000048) not located in a known VMA region (needed readable region)! destination "%r8" ok SegvReason: reading NULL VMA What can I do to help you debug these issues? I really like Enpass and would like it to be stable again.
  14. Replying to my own question in case it helps someone else: I can confirm that swapping the primary vault with a secondary one can simply be achieved by: Ensuring everything is "cloud" (or WebDAV) synced Using the "Erase everything" button under Settings -> Advanced Create a new "primary" vault and choose the "restore from existing sync location" option Repeat step 3 for any secondary vault Usual caveats apply: make sure you have an offline backup of as much stuff as possible to be on the safe side... This procedure has been successfully tested on both iOS and the desktop (Linux) versions of Enpass versions 6.3/6.2
  15. Hi there, I've been an avid Enpass user for a few years now and whenever I get the chance (eg: here just yesterday), I keep telling everyone what a great product it is! So I've set up my "primary" vault containing business data many moons ago; then along came the multiple vaults feature and I've finally gotten around to writing some Python code to convert my 15+ years old creaking eWallet store to Enpass as a secondary vault. This works great; for me - as for many others I believe - separation of concerns has been one of the key use-cases for multiple vaults. Now I'd quite like to swap these two vaults around so my personal vault is the primary and my business data is stored as a secondary vault. Can this be done? I suppose this might be possible by starting everything afresh and re-importing the data using the "sync" feature (I use WebDav, works a treat)... but I'd really appreciate if someone can confirm this would work as I definitely don't want to run the risk of losing any data. Many thanks! Chris
