No

(Configured in single click opening)
When clicking on a .pdf file or an .avi file, xfe crashes and the only error message is :

FXComposeContext: illegal window parameter

Opening a .jpg file with gthumb configured is working, so software other than xfe suite is not an issue.
Opening libreoffice files is OK.

My setup :
- Xubuntu 12.10 quantal, 64 bits
- XFE 1.32.5
- Ubuntu package : 1.32.5-1

    Hi,

    the Xfe package provided by Ubuntu is broken because they use the -Bsymbolic-functions option when compiling the FOX library. I've filled a bug report to the Ubuntu team, so hopefully the bug will be fixed soon. In between, you can download and install the libfox and xfe packages I provide on my website. Here are the links :

    Thanks for the bug report,
    RB
