I have problems using the Power Profiler Kit from nRFConnect v.2.6.1 with a nRF52832 DK on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 (KDE Neon). It is unreliable in opening the serial port, but the main problem is that after a short while the screen of the application turns white and nothing more happens. Sometimes I can Start and see some measurement data before it turns white, sometimes it turns white even before I can press the Start button... I tried it already on a PC and on a Laptop, both with the same SW Versions.
Screenshot (of the white screen) is attached
There is this similar case, but we have not been able to recreate it here:https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/f/nordic-q-a/40252/nrf-connect-2-6-0-white-screen-on-linux
Any findings you may have, please share so I can report it.
Update: The team will start look into this over the next 2 weeks.
I get segfaults in dmesg as soon as the white screen occurs:
