SEGFAULT under Linux

See original GitHub issue

Hey guys, I’m getting the following Segfault under Arch Linux which previously (and still) runs 2.2 version just fine:

(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/bin/byteball
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
Using host libthread_db library /usr/lib/
[New Thread 0x7fffe45cc700 (LWP 5359)]
LaunchProcess: failed to execvp:
[5360:5360:0629/] Bad NaCl helper startup ack (0 bytes)

Thread 1 byteball received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007fffe9dd2d60 in pango_fc_font_get_glyph () from /usr/lib/
(gdb) bt
#0  0x00007fffe9dd2d60 in pango_fc_font_get_glyph () at /usr/lib/
#1  0x00007fffe9dd2db7 in  () at /usr/lib/
#2  0x00005555555813d4 in hb_font_funcs_set_glyph_extents_func ()
#3  0x0000000000000000 in  ()

Tried removing + reinstalling relevant pango/etc packages, and clearing font cache etc - no avail though. Any clues? New dependencies introduced or something?

Same problem here on Debian GNU/Linux. Downloading the latest byteball release and attempting to start it only results in a segmentation fault.

Still happening in 2.4.0 and 2.4.1 😦
