So i search all over the internet but cant get a solution to this.

I have installed OBS studio in Elementary OS. OBS runs fine but when i go to settings and then close (even without making any change) OBS is terminated with errors.

the error in
Code:
tail -f /var/log/syslog
is:

Code:

Similar here with Ubuntu 18.04. Obs version 25.0.1
Was working OK and stopped working without any known updates.
In my case the segfault is when applying any change, I can open and close the settings window without problem.
The change is saved but then obs closes.

Same with Linux Mint. Just updated to OBS 25.0.1 and now closes when i click Apply or OK for Settings. Sometimes it does save the new settings, sometimes not.

In my case the settings in profile are saved, but not the changes in scenes.
Was trying to change hotkeys. Start recording does get saved, but scene change not.
Thanks for the info!!
Waiting for the hotfix. Meanwhile it's possible to change settings modifying the configuration ttext files .

Thanks! This is great - the same issues and crashes have turned up in my setup, and I have been wondering and re-installing and updating and what have you since Friday evening. good to know it is a common bug. I will go for 25.0.2 fix now - looking forward to it!
