    Big bug in gnome-search

    On my Thinkpad R51 - 2887:

    When I search on text in files with gnome-search (Search for Files) I experience a complete system crash. An update today of gnome-system-tools didn't solve the problem.

    (Yes, I reported the bug but it is marked "invalid" as I didn't provide enough information, according to the guru's on Launchpad).

    It's not marked invalid because you didn't provide enough information:

    Well, I followed the instructions and let the thing crash a few times

    process outlined above will NOT automatically open a new bug report

    I will wait until somebody of much higher intelligence experiences the bug and reports it according to the procedures.

    If you don't get a crash file it maybe didn't crash but just hung? I tried to reproduce it but the search tool works fine for me.

    for an automatic bug report you need apport to be running, i think its disabled by default during the dev cycle (see /etc/defaullt/apport) to avoid mountains of automatic bug reports.
    First force start apport
    $sudo service apport start force_start=1

    then let the crash happen, hopefully you should see the 'report bug' dialog automatically where apport can generate all the useful information

    Apport is enabled at startup.

    Code:
    sudo service apport start force_start=1
    start: Job is already running: apport
    But no apport dialog after the crash.

    hmmm, do you have the _crash file in /var/crash?

    you can send manually if the crash report is actually generated
    $ ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_some_crash_report.crash

    There are no crash files.

    I'm not even sure Apport is enabled yet - it's not normally enabled until later in to the cycle. Have a look in /etc/default/apport
