On linux mint 15 cinnamon 64 bit any attempt to use the right click menu, e.g. run as, causes the application to exit without any message.

It would be nice if all the right click options for gnome were enabled, in particular the send mail ability.

    Same result on Mint 14 Xfce. Running xfe from a terminal produces the following error after a right-click crash:

    "FXComposeContext: illegal window parameter"

    A search shows this to be a regression bug in libfox; earlier versions of libfox worked OK. Quantal has libfox 1.6.45.x, which is apparently the culprit.

    I uninstalled libfox (which also removed xfe), then temporarily changed my main repo to Precise, refreshed, then reinstalled libfox (version 1.6.44.x), then changed my main repo back to Quantal, then refreshed, then installed xfe. This solved the problem. Now I just need to reinstall the latest xfce version (1.34), using the .deb from the Xfe website (Precise and Quantal both have 1.32.5).

    Please have a look at https://sourceforge.net/p/xfe/bugs/171.
    I think it's the same issue, and someone proposed a workaround: launch xfe with the option "-im nothing"
    This worked for me on 64-bit Mint 14C, 15C and 15M
