    Thunar segmentation fault

    Hi all!
    I've installed Voyager 12.10 x64 (Xubuntu) on my laptop (Acer 5920G).
    It looks fantastic and fast as well.
    But...
    Thunar crashes either from the terminal either from menu when I try to navigate through folders and/or open files. (segmentation fault)
    I've added thunar/xfce 4.12 ppa (xubuntu-dev) to install the most fresh build of thunar (1.5.3) but it didn't help.
    Do I have to abandon thunar and move to nautilus or similar?
    Thanks.

    Re: Thunar segmentation fault

    Try running thunar like this:
    Code:
    strace -f -F -odebug.txt thunar
    After the crash, have a look at the debug.txt file in the working directory for a clue as to what caused the segmentation fault. Feel free to post it back here via:
    Code:
    pastebinit debug.txt
    ...and post back the link that is generated.

    Depending on the results, we may be able to offer some suggestions or at least suggest that you create a bug report over at bugzilla.xfce.org.

    Re: Thunar segmentation fault

    Nothing jumps out at me in that log file to indicate a cause.

    Do you have a crash report file created in /var/crash for thunar? If so, can you post the crash file?

    Also, are there any error messages in ~/.xsession-errors when thunar crashes?

    (Un)fortunately there is neither a crash report file in /var/crash nor any error message in ~/.xsession-errors for thunar.

    Re: Thunar segmentation fault

    Have you tested this crash in another user account (to rule out the possibility of a user configuration issue)?

    If you are interested, here is a wiki article about debugging: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Backtrace and getting a backtrace.

    It might be best to create a bug report over at bugzilla.xfce.org.

    Guest account also has crashed Thunar.

    So, I've got a backtrace it and send it to bugzilla (bug 9581), as you've suggested.

    Thanks for all.
