1)When i am trying view one of the decks statistics, statistics window appearing for ~5 secs and then both anki and staistics windows disappearing without any notice, anki process quits too.
Appeared statistics window is not fully loaded and whithout any charts.
Maybe it is due that currently only 16bit depth color allowed in my system.
2) Sometimes when i am editing card and switching language in lubuntu anki quits in same way.

Lubuntu 15.04, Anki 2.0.31

    Certain Qt versions on Linux distros tend to cause Anki to crash I'm afraid. Rolling back to an older version may be difficult on your distro as other packages may depend on a newer version, so you may want to look at running Anki on Wine or in a VM.

    Problem 1) doesn't worry me anymore - i can watch statistics in windows.
    But 2) is pretty annoying. Some times anki quits when i switching language even when anki is not active application - when i switching language in firefox. How it possible?

    I think it has to do with dbus, which both programs may hook into -- we've seen people saying it happens when they do things like change the music playing in a media player. It's a really annoying bug, and the exact causes are probably very complicated.

    For what it's worth, I haven't seen any crashes since I did a reinstall of the latest version of my distro, but your mileage may vary, and it's also possible I've just gotten lucky.
