Picard crash on Debian 10 when open settings window

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f75684671b8>

Hi, I recently installed Picard on my Debian 10. But when I go to (I use it in Spanish, maybe is Preferences instead of settings ) Settings > Settings… when I just click there the program crash, the console return me this Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/picard/picard/ui/mainwindow.py", line 850, in show_options dialog = OptionsDialog(page, self) File "/usr/lib/picard/picard/ui/options/dialog.py", line 137, in __init__ page.load() File "/usr/lib/picard/picard/ui/options/about.py", line 93, in load """) % args KeyError: 'autores-créditos' [1] 14497 abort picard

Thanks for reading.

Half an answer would be - try to see if it works in the default English.

Go find the settings file on your *nix box.
$HOME/.config/MusicBrainz/Picard.ini

When this file is opened in a text editor, search for ui_language= under the [setting] section.

In your case this will be currently set to ui_language=es.

Change that to ui_language=

Remove everything after the = to make it go back to default.

Save the settings file and restart Picard. If there is now no crash, then we have a translation issue that should be fixable.

Or just rename Picard.ini to HiddenPicard.ini and restart Picard. That throws everything back to defaults as a very quick test. Also means you can copy it back again afterwards.

This was a bug in the Spanish translation that had been fixed in Picard 2.1.3, see https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/PICARD-1461

Debian stable does have Picard 2.1.2. Looks like Debian should include the patch in their package, I have created an issue on https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=941464
