Error code 8 when Tixati starts...

by Guest on 2021/11/23 10:36:32 PM    
Hello everyone,
I am currently encountering a problem when I try to start Tixati. I am on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS. As soon as I start Tixati, there is the usual loading screen with the blue bar. However, after 2s of loading, there is an error message saying :

"Error Loading Config File
/home/jeremy/.tixati/autothrottle2.dat
Error code 8

The config file could not be read from disk or is corrupt.
Please select an action:
- Revert to backup of last successfully loaded config file
- Delete config file and start fresh
- Do nothing and try again

_ Leave copy of broken config file on desktop

Make sure the disk is not full.
OK"

First I tried to restart the computer because I just got an update from Livepatch. So I just thought it might have been a conflict between some files because of the update. It did not solve the problem...

Secondly, I tried to click on the third option "Do nothing and try again". There is an window that appears that says :
Please wait...
User has selected "Do nothing and try again"
PLEASE CLICK THE CLOSE BUTTON THEN MANUALLY RESTART TIXATI TO TRY AGAIN
I did what it says. It did not solve the problem...

Thirdly, I tried to click on the first option "Revert to backup of last successfully loaded config file". There is a window that says :
"Please wait...
User has selected "Revert to backup of last successfully loaded config file"
Copying last successfully loaded config file to temporary file:
Copying /home/jeremy/.tixati/autothrottle2.dat.lastloadok.dat
To /home/jeremy/.tixati/autothrottle2.dat.temp
Please wait...
Copied OK!
Moving temporary to current config file:
Moving /home/jeremy/.tixati/autothrottle2.dat.temp
To /home/jeremy/.tixati/autothrottle2.dat
Please wait...
Moved OK!
COMPLETE!
Please restart Tixati after clicking the Close button."
I did what it says. It did not solve the problem...

Fourthly, I tried the last option: "Delete config file and start fresh". There is an window that appears that says :
Please wait...
User has selected "Delete config file and start fresh"
Removing current config file:
Removing /home/jeremy/.tixati/bwpresets2.dat
Please wait...
Removed OK!
COMPLETE!
Please restart Tixati after clicking the Close button.
I did what it says. It did not solve the problem...

Finally, I uninstalled Tixati with "sudo apt remove tixati". The uninstallation worked. I reinstalled it with "sudo apt update", then "cd Downloads", then "ls", then "/home/jeremy/Téléchargements" (because I am French and this is where my downloads are located, téléchargements means downloads). The installation worked. However, the original problem persists when I start Tixati.

Do you have any idea how to solve this problem ?
Thanks in adavance for your response,
Best regards,

Have you tried to delete 'autothrottle2.dat' and its copy? Not the most important file of all the config files...

Okok, so I really don't like when something "repair" itself without doing anything... Because, after some tries (again) yesterday. It did not work again. However, for some REASON, today, Tixati started just fine, as usual... That is super weird. So unfortunately, I don't have any response to that problem to give to the community :/
I have not even tried your possible solution, so I don't know if it would have solved the issue or not.

Sorry everyone for your attention,
Have you all a nice day,
