Segmentation fault

please tell me the procedure to come out .

Have you tried renaming the mentioned config file (to something like config_backup)? Maybe something in the config is broken and thus prevents rviz from starting.

Or even rename the whole .rviz directory.

Segmentation fault may also be due to your display card. If you are using nvidia card you should update the driver: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

Not a real answer, but if you get that with a default config file, keep trying. On my side I sometimes have to launch rviz 5-10 times before it starts up without a segfault.
