2.93: Crash on system with a non-English locale
Confirmed, NormalPublic

Description

System Information
Operating system: macOS-11.4-arm64-arm-64bit 64 Bits
Graphics card: Apple M1 Apple 4.1 Metal - 71.6.4

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.93.0, branch: master, commit date: 2021-06-02 11:21, hash: rB84da05a8b806
Worked: (newest version of Blender that worked as expected)

Short description of error
When I open first Blender on the system which the locale set to Korean, the program just shut down and report error message.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Set system locale Korean, and just start Blender program at first time on the system.

When I started the program after changing system locale to English, the program worked normally. After that, I changed the locale of Blender program to Korean inside the program, then error didn't occur.
And I closed the program, and changed again the system locale to Korean, and open Blender program, and the error didn't occur. I guess the error occurs only when first open the Blender program that is not initialized on Korean system.

Try this:

  • Set system locale to Korean
  • Rename ~/Library/Application Support/Blender/ to something else, like Blender_backup
  • Open Blender.

Does the crash happen ?

Hi, I'm new to blender and also have this problem when I open blender in my Intel MBP, my locale is set to Japanese.
It works well when I was in 2.83 but crashed in 2.93.

I also deleted ~/Library/Application Support/Blender/ and tried to open it again, but it didn't work.

Sorry, I tried reproduce the error by reinstalling the app after removing the app with App Cleaner, however I couldn't reproduce the error.
I checked ~/Library/Application Support/Blender/ is deleted after removing the app. After rebooting, and reinstalling, I opened the app on the system with Korean locale, but the error did not occur.

So it could be that settings saved in previous versions of Blender is causing the error in the new one.

Here is what I tried:

  • Run AppCleaner to remove blender.
  • Run sudo rm -rf ~/Library/Application Support/Blender/, and reboot.
  • Reinstall blender 2.93

Still not works

  • Download blender 2.83
  • Replace blender in the Application folder

Works

We need steps to create the error locally, not the steps to make blender launch.
They'd look like:

  • set locale to Korean
  • Delete this folder
  • run this version
  • run that version
  • Now blender crashes

etc

delete ~/Library/Application Support/Blender/ and launch 2.93 still not work.
here's the crash log.


however, i changed locale to english and launch 2.93, it launched.
If you checked successfully run it in English locale and revert it back to Korean locale, it even still works.

I cannot redo it on macOS mojave. All three reports are on Big Sur 11.4. (the OS is not mentioned in one comment)

I tried to localize in English and it works, but when I try to reset it to Italian it starts crashing again
