Auto restart Tumbler...

I was using Manjaro and MX for a minute and one of those had a Tumbler auto-restarting feature. Tumbler often crashes when viewing media. Could we please get this feature too?

I can produce a screenshot to illustrate what I'm talking about but it simply produces thumbnails for media up to a point where it encounters something that crashes it, then everything after is just a blank icon until the system is restarted.

Love XFCE though! I switched to it when Ubuntu switched to Gnome 3 (After Ubuntu 10.10) and then never looked back.

Are you able to provide some log file entries with error messages when this happens? Ubuntu distros should have an ~/.xsession-errors file. Or if you are using systemd, this command after the issue happens might help:

journalctl --no-pager -b 0 | grep tumbler

Ideally, the issue should be fixed - maybe a bug report is required.

As for using the Manjaro or MX workround, are you referring to this script? It checks to see if tumblerd is using too much CPU or memory and if so, restarts it. By default, tumbler will shutdown and restart when needed on its own.

Which distro and which version of tumbler are you running?

Re: Auto restart Tumbler...

I am so sorry that I didn't reply to you when you had posted this. I somehow did not get the notification. "We" meant us XFCE fans. It is my favorite GUI and it has really shined for Linux Gaming people like myself.

Yes, here are the log data and yes this still happens. Tumbler just stops when it has difficulty with some video files. It seems to restart itself like you said but the delay is big in Xubuntu 23.04. It wasn't with Manjaro.

I'm currently using Xubuntu 23.04 but it was the same for earlier versions.

Re: Auto restart Tumbler...

Tumbler is being started by Thunar and then killed. It runs for a short time then gets stopped. Normal.

Re: Auto restart Tumbler...

Ok. I will install all the plugs and attempt to configure it better. Maybe it's working just fine but some changes by Ubuntu may have produced the results that I'm having a problem with.
