I previously used ardour under Ubuntu from debian packages, which will have been version 5.12 according to https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/ardour (I am running ubuntu bionic). Now I donated and downloaded the latest official binary release from ardour.org.
After installing it, it found my old config and asked me to import it. (Which I assume might be the problem)
Now the program starts until the project selection screen and afterwards crashes after a while.

My questions are: Do you think this can be solved by resetting the configuration? And how can I do so? Will I be able to work on my old projects?
