  • FoxitReader for Linux remains as ghost process

    Hello. I tried using FoxitReader for Linux because my school uses that. The Reader works OK by itself. My problem is that when I close the program (file, close) the process somehow hangs in the background.
    If I don't kill it by hand, FoxitReader will then block my logout.

    Debian Buster with Trinity Desktop here.

    Could you please help provide the following info so we could better advise?
    1) Version number of your Debian;
    2) Did it occur to any PDF document or just specific one?
    3) A screenshot/small video that shows the problem.

    Thank you.

      Thanks you for your help,

      1) As I said Debian is version 10 "buster" with the stock kernel 4.19.0-5-amd64
      2) It does not always happen (but often) and I could not link it with any specific PDF. I tried setting "close all tabs on exit" but it does not seem to cure the problem
      3) I add a screen shot of the process list showing two time FoxitReader. Alt-TAB does not let me access FoxitReader. If I start the program again it usually shows as a third occurence of FoxitReader. Some time nothing happens, sometime the Reader opens.

      I've tried starting the program from the command line to look at the messages. It produces quite a lot and I don't want to fill the forum with it. I managed to get the "moment of the crash", when the process hanged this is what I had in my text window:

      ~CReader_DocumentEx() begin: "/data/GYB/Cours/PDF_2018-2019/Cours_M3_2018-2019.pdf"
      ~CReader_DocumentEx() end
      CReader_AppEx::CloseDocument end
      CReader_AppEx::CloseDocument begin: "13:56:14"
      CReader_AppEx::OnCloseDocument 1
      opr: "docClose"
      CReader_AppEx::OnCloseDocument deleteTab begin
      ~CPDF_TVPreview() begin
      ~CPDF_TVPreview() end
      ActivateTab--index= 0 m_nlastIndex= 1
      delete enable = false
      dd enable = false
      CReader_AppEx::OnCloseDocument deleteTab end
      delete enable = false
      dd enable = false
      ConnectedPDF Plugin: FRDocDidClose Begin

      ConnectedPDF Plugin: FRDocDidClose End

      ~CReader_DocumentEx() begin: "/data/GYB/Cours/PDF_2018-2019/Cours_CG2_2018-2019.pdf"
      ~CReader_DocumentEx() end
      CReader_AppEx::CloseDocument end
      ~CReader_AppEx() begin

      I can get more if this is useful.
