seg fault after upgrading to Ubuntu 18.10


Description Paul Johnson 2018-10-20 02:42:50 CEST
Upgrade has not been smooth. Do I have enough to help diagnose it?
I realize debugging symbols are not showing, if you tell me which package has them, I'll install and do better.

Comment 1 Andre Miranda editbugs 2018-10-20 03:28:53 CEST
I'm almost sure it's a dup of Bug 14464, can you check in ~/.config/thunar/uca.xml if there are custom actions without an icon?
If so, add any icon, e.g. <icon>utilities-terminal</icon> and let us know if Thunar still crashes.
For what is worth, the bug fix is available in 1.8.2.
Comment 2 Paul Johnson 2018-10-20 04:17:46 CEST
I verify your suggestion. My uca.xml had one stanza:

	<command>mlterm --working-directory=%d --bg=&quot;black&quot; --fg=&quot;gray90&quot;</command>

when I put the name of an icon in, the Thunar does not seg fault any more.
Comment 3 Andre Miranda editbugs 2018-10-20 04:21:23 CEST
Ok, I'm going to poke Ubuntu packagers to update Thunar to 1.8.2.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 14464 ***
Comment 4 Paul Johnson 2018-10-20 04:22:10 CEST
I'm changing status to Resolved: Duplicate. If that is wrong resolution, please change for me.
