Title: Copying mac BeerSmith2 config to ubuntu - segmentation fault
Post by: karibrews on October 04, 2019, 08:18:58 PM
After reading other threads, it seems I should be able to copy my BeerSmith2 files from one installation to another to get my equipment, inventory, recipes, etc. effortlessly. I am moving my software from a mac to ubuntu. When I started up beersmith2 on the ubuntu  machine the first time, it worked fine. Imade a backup of the .beersmith2 directory. I then exited, copied over my mac Documents/BeerSmith2 into ~/.beersmith2. Next time I tried to start up I got a segmentation fault. I deleted .beersmith2, re-started, re-entered the key and it started fine. I shut it down, then copied just Equipment.bsmx over from the mac files, segmentation fault again. When I copied Equipment.bsmx from the ubuntu backup into the .beersmith2 directory I still get a segmentation fault. Is there anyway to update my config and recipes on a ubuntu copy of beersmith2 from a mac copy?

thanks,
Kari

Worst case you can try the following:
  - On the new machine go to File->Open and open the OLD Recipe.bsmx file you copied from the old computer
  - In the open file tab, copy and paste the recipes you want to keep into the My Recipes folder
  - You can do a similar process with ingredients and equipment if needed - open Equipment.bsmx for example, then copy/paste stuff into Profiles->Equipment view
