View Full Version : [lubuntu] Lubuntu 10.10 pcmanfm crashes on right clck

August 15th, 2010, 11:34 PM
Hi, I have found a bug, pcmanfm sometimes crashes with any right click, on the desktop or on any pcman window. The kernel.log sows:

pcmanfm[1171]: segfault at 1 ip 00bd859b sp bfc189bc error 4 in libc-2.12.so[abc000+157000]

I have reported the bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pcmanfm/+bug/617655).

the loud scream you heard would have been the creator of pcmanfm :p
The bug is correctly registered and I'm sure he will be looking into it.

Thanks for taking the time to report it.

I have the same problem.

I just realized the problem. This issue appears if you are using the
version of libfm in the Lubuntu PPA on Maverick. It's currently quite
unstable and I advise you to remove it and re-install the libfm in
official Maverick repository until we figure out why it's crashing.

I just removed the version on the PPA, I'll report back when it will be
stable enough to be tested. Sorry for this :(

That work for me!!!

What versions do you have installed of libfm0 and libfm-gtk0?

Some of us who had added the Lubuntu PPA a while back have found that dropping back to the current repository version solved the crash problem. The version numbers that currently work are 0.1.12-1ubuntu1.

If you have the two programs above showing up as local or obsolete, and with a different version number, ping me back and I'll give you a fairly simple fix. At least it worked for me.

Everything was described in thread 'PCManFM crashes after right click on icon' on lubuntu-desktop mailing list on Launchpad, started with my message https://lists.launchpad.net/lubuntu-desktop/msg02159.html

I've used PurgePPA.

And for those who go "purge ppa"????!!!! It is a handy little tool, I wrote up a quick introduction to it at ppa purge (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Developers#ppa-purge) There are some other notes for those testing the Lubuntu 10.10 system at Lubuntu 10.10 Development (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Developers).
