    It would help if you would post the complete error message here.

    One reason could be the initialization of global instances. If you have changed your program and it was running before without problem, check in this area.

    this is the error iam getting

  • Moderators

    It looks like your application is already running (so main was called). You should try to run your application through the debugger.

  • i placed break point in the first line of main function, it is not coming there.

    before that itself its getting crashed

  • Moderators

    Can you post your code then I can try it on my Ubuntu 14.04 machine

  • It seems you have binary conflict. Are you running app outside of Qt Creator? What happens if you run it in Qt Creator?
