If rstudio is sporadically crashing for you, know it's a known issue with glibc and chromium. There's an issue filed on the rstudio github with links to more information:

It turns out that the RStudio 1.4.869 binary for Debian / Ubuntu installs the Debian package libpq5 as a dependency. Apparently RStudio 1.4 requires the PostgreSQL client libraries. That surprises me; I'll dig through the release notes when I get a free half-hour or so.

Meanwhile, the PKGBUILD for this package should have a dependency to bring in postgresql-libs.

@znmeb, installing postgresql-libs fixed my problem. Thank you very much

@br_shadow: is the PostgreSQL client library. You may need to install / reinstall extra/postgresql-libsor install / reinstall any R packages that interface to PostgreSQl.

I have the Arch package installed and don't get the error. If you don't have it installed and aren't using PostgreSQL it's probably an upstream RStudio issue - they may be looking to connect to PostgreSQL by default.

After upgrading to 1.4.869 Rstudio fails to open with the following message

The R session process exited with code 127.

/usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rsession: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Will this be updated to 1.4 when it's brought up to date? They just migrated the preview download site.

Issue with glibc and chromium should be fixed in RStudio v1.3.1004-1 Preview (

I just created another AUR repo for the daily builds (

the original glibc crashing is fixed in there, so let me know if there are still crashes with rstudio happening in there.

@bquast: if you launch rstudio from the command line does the terminal report any error when the program crashes?

If not, is there anything posted in the application logs (see previous post)

bquast commented on 2020-05-01 07:19

I also have more frequent crashes since the latest update

chendaniely commented on 2020-05-01 04:11


Does anything show up in the application logs (1) or backtrace logs (2)? I've personally reduced my use of rstudio since the glibc and qt problems were happening and attributed all weird crash issues to that...

If the logs show something I would then see if there's anything relevant in the rstudio issues page (3).
