When I'm trying to run monero-gui-v0.11.1.0 on Ubuntu 14.04, I'm getting the following errors.

After running start-gui.sh on the terminal:

app startd
*** Error in `./monero-wallet-gui': free(): invalid pointer: 0xb48770c0 ***
Aborted (core dumped)

I tried installing libraries, rebooting the laptop, etc. What am I doing wrong, and how to finally get the wallet-gui working?

UPD. > How are you running monero-wallet-cli ? I have very similar issues with CLI. Also, my platform is Linux x32.

  • How are you running monero-wallet-cli ?

  • Reply instead of editing your first post, otherwise I don't see the notification that you replied :) Anyway, you can do this: run "ulimit -c unlimited", then "echo core | sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/core_pattern" then run the wallet again till it crashes, then run "gdb monero-wallet-gui core*" (add the path to monero-wallet-gui if it's not in the current directory), then when gdb has loaded, run "bt". Then paste the result (you'll need to press enter a few times to get through all pages).

Core Dump is usually something going wrong on the software side.

This question is old (2018), so if anyone is having this issue I recommend they install the latest version of Monero and try again.

If you're still having the issue, you're probably encountering a different issue and should ask another question
