Thunar: Suddenly closes when paste a file

Hi, I'm using XFCE 4.12 and Thunar 1.6.6 on CentOS7.

Every time I try to copy a file from Home to a mounted folder (on server) I get "Segmentation fault (core dumped)", and thunar suddenly closes. If I do the smae using cp on terminal I don't have any problem.

Maybe someone can help me?

thanks.

Re: Thunar: Suddenly closes when paste a file

Hello and welcome.

It sounds like it "might" be one of this or this bug.

Does the problem occur if you copy/paste using Thunar between folders on your local drive, or is it just to network-mounted devices?

Also, what version of glib2 do you have installed?

Re: Thunar: Suddenly closes when paste a file

Hi, and thanks for your super fast response.

I'm using glib2, version 2.40.0, release 4.el7.

The problem occurs on network mounted devices, but I have my home mounted on a network drive. Cut/copy/paste on local /tmp folder works perfectly.

I'm using glib2, version 2.40.0, release 4.el7.

Then this is probably something else.

Can you give some more details about the type of network mounts (nfs, cifs, etc) that you are experiencing the crash with, and have you tried the different protocols (i.e. does it only crash using one protocol?)

Re: Thunar: Suddenly closes when paste a file

Usually I install XFCE412 for CentOS7 from https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/ma … 7-xfce412/, but yesterday this repo disappeared so I just reinstalled a machine and now thunar is 1.6.3 and all is running ok.
But the default CentOS repos didn't have all the XFCE packages availables, like XFCE-MIXER, so no sound control.

Anyway thanks for your help.

Xfce has dropped xfce-mixer for political reasons, pulseaudio is in every desktop now. This is called Poettering linux. Official reason is gstreamer changes, but I have latest gstreamer and nothing never is available and xfce-mixer works fine. Qasmixer is another graphical alsa mixer, try that one if you can not find xfce-mixer anymore. Do not install pulseaudio, that will disturb games and bluetooh file transfer.

I haven't encountered any issues in that regard. Maybe it's just a Debian thing, lol?

" haven't encountered any issues in that regard. Maybe it's just a Debian thing, lol?"

Play Team Fortress. And pluseaduio uses 2% of cpu time, alsa and gstreamer 0%. Google finds several bugreports and latest are in the xfce bugzillla. Pulseaudio today has same problems that in 2008.

There's a "Quote" function here. Can't miss it - it looks like Quote.

Sorry, you caught me 10+ years past my Halflife phase.

Ouch, 2%. That leaves only 98% unused. Doggone that slackard, lol. I'm going to tell mine to exercise more, maybe it'll be able to reach, IDK... 5%? Seriously, though, what CPU is that? 6th-generation Intel i5? 3rd-generation Intel i7? One of those AMD CPU/GPU combos? A particular generation/model of Celeron? An Atom, lol? A different one than mine, I assume, since I've got a lot more running than just Firefox with its 100-odd tabs (I have issues wink ) and the application that is belting out "Sultans of Swing" by Dire Straits - and I'm looking at 4%... 3%... 2%... 3%... for my entire system's CPU load.

I'll be sure and read them...

...if running pulseaudio gives me any grief (during the next several years wink ).

Use what you want - it's linux, the world is full of choices. But realize that, sometimes, people want to use something else, and to get help with that. And if you really want to pick on something that has bug reports, I've heard about this thing called Gtk3...

EDIT: My apologies to asch75. I'm sorry that I didn't have anything useful to type about your issue, and I am glad that your current installation is working.

Regards,
MDM

My son was 14 when we first noticed that pulseaudio is shit. Now he  is playing Metro 2033 and Last Light, Cities Skylines, Pay Day 2, Insurgency etc. Alsa is for gamers, not pulseaudio.

Closed. We've digressed from the original issue.
