Texmaker FAQ

Segmentation Fault

If you're running SL5 and texmaker immediately closes with a segmentation fault open up a Terminal and enter this command:

unset SESSION_MANAGER; texmaker

To make this change permanent add this line to your ~/.bashrc file:

alias texmaker="unset SESSION_MANAGER; /usr/bin/texmaker"

And the next time you log in it'll just work.
