I have a adafruit PiTfT 2.8" 320x240 capacitive touch display running on a raspberry pi. I cross compiled my executable under linux, where I also cross-compiled qt. If I run the enclosed example program, and touch the screen repeatedly, I get a segfault.

[9;0]TouchPointPressed without previous release event QQuickEventPoint(accepted:false state:Pressed scenePos:QPointF(327.487,183.617) id:2000002 timeHeld:0)
Segmentation fault

Here is what gdb tells me

Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.

  • It might be worth running gdb as root; apparently that can cause the stack trace you got. – Aurora0001 May 29 '18 at 13:15
  • I tried but the crash still occurs – maxwell May 29 '18 at 13:28
  • The first segfault you got implies that the touchscreen registered a touch without a first touch being removed... If you tap the screen slowly do you get the segfault??? – scitronboy May 29 '18 at 18:39

I found a way to avoid the crash: Compiling Qt with libinput support and using libinput instead of evdev.
