View Full Version : Issue with Thunar (crashes on copy/move)

3rd March 2015, 03:32 PM

maybe someone can help me with that issue. :confused:

I use F20 with notion3 ("a tiling and tabbing window manager for the X Window System").

Before, Thunar worked like a charm, but for a few weeks it crashes (Thunar just disappears without any message) when I try to copy or
move and the "progress bar window" should appear. I guess this first appeared after an update, but I did not recognize it at that time.

Thunar never disappointed me, but that issue makes it almost unusable. :blink:

I've installed F21 for my parents who use Xfce and they don't have that (or any other) problem.
But I don't want to re-install my machine now (I want to do this when F22 is out).

I always update my system (I first thought this might be a temporary issue) and so I've installed the newest version the repos provide.

Thanks in advance!

Sounds just what's been plaguing Nautilus for a couple releases (introduced like a year and a half-ish ago already IIRC).
ABRT does happen to catch a lot of different backtraces and it is fairly random (luckily no data loss yet but very very annoying)
Do you also happen to use ntfs-3g for data?

I also did not have any data loss so far, but, as you said, it's terribly annoying.

I have ntfs-3g installed, but all my hard disks and sticks are ext3/ext4 formatted.

You are running Thunr 1.6.5, right? Downgrade to 1.6.4 and see if that helps ...

Downgrade to Thunar 1.6.3, if it's possible, while the upstream fix is done:

Thanks for your answers!

As soon as I'm home I will try to temporarily downgrade (until that bug is fixed).

Edit: My Thunar version is 1.6.4

That's a terribly annoying bug on F20 which doesn't occur in F21 and above ... At this point, the only "solution" is to downgrade.

Indeed, this really sucks! Hope it'll be fixed soon.
