mss with PyQt5 crash in segmentation fault

  • MSS version: 4.0.0

Description of the warning/error

I have tried to use mss to make screenshots from console code with python. Works just fine. Now I have made a GUI with PyQt5 and it is working just fine in windows. But in Linux, I get a segmentation fault

This is the smallest code that makes the error:

from PyQt5 import QtWidgets
from mss import mss

if __name__ == "__main__":
    import sys
    app = QtWidgets.QApplication(sys.argv)

    with mss() as sct:

I have made my code in PyCharm and I have realized that if I run the debugger without even any breakpoints, the code works. But if I RUN the code from within PyCharm it crashes with seg fault. The same thing if I run the program from a console.
