In Ubuntu 10.04.1, attempting to navigate to /etc/issue (attempting to navigate to other files in /etc and elsewhere also caused this problem) while a regular user ) results in the Error "The specified directory is not valid" and pcmanfm seg faulting.

    Got another very slightly different error that traces to the same place when pcmanfm had been up for a while.

    Sorry, forgot to note, my pcmanfm was compiled from git source on Thu, 02 Sep 2010 00:03:03 GMT; at which time it was version 0.9.7.

    Sorry, the attached files contain the information you are looking for. I didn't know I was supposed to put it in the Details.

    Try to compile the program with --enable-debug and avoid installing with install-strip. It seems that some debug symbols are removed.
    Normally, if all debug info are retained, gdb can even tell us in which source file and in which line the bug resides. It's very useful for debugging.

    I'm confused--doesn't it trace back to pcmanfm.c, line 272, aka gtk_main(); in the version I have:
    269 if(pcmanfm_run())
    270 {
    271 fm_volume_manager_init();
    272 gtk_main();
    273 if(desktop_running)
    274 fm_desktop_manager_finalize();
    275 fm_config_save(config, NULL); /* save libfm config */
    276 fm_app_config_save((FmAppConfig*)config, config_name); /* save pcmanfm config */
    277 fm_volume_manager_finalize();
    278 }

     
  • It works fine for me with decent libfm&pcmanfm.

     
  • I suppose that was fixed since then.
    Reopen the bug, please, if the problem still exists.
