It is a known issue (you can find these too, take the error, I copied the Glib-Error and go to google I put bluefish followed by the error and you get many hits) This is one: that should help..

This answser from the link sums it up well:
Quote:
As the last contributor said, it involves the ~/.bluefish/session-2.0 file in your home folder. to see this file, enable "show hidden files" by right clicking inside the folder and selecting "show hidden files". Once there, open this .bluefish folder, right click on the session-2.0 file and select properties, select the permissions tab, tick the execute box and then the set sticky bit box, close, close the editor and all should work fine. Can't explain why, but when the program creates or writes to the file, it is unsetting the execute permissions, setting the sticky bit seems to keep them set, and the program works again.

bluefish

Thank you! I ticked the execute box, but I could not find a set sticky bit box.

Another option in that thread was to delete the file (I would rename the .bluefish file to something like .bluefish_old or such and then bluefish should just start again.

Here is info on sticky bit though in case you wanted to try it. Me? I'd go with the option to drop the files and start anew.

Sorry, I should have not assumed you knew what I meant about renaming. If you are in your home folder in terminal just type:

Code:
mv .bluefish .bluefish_old
That will do it, the command is mv (move) instead of rename.

Then just open bluefish and it will recreate the .bluefish folder for you. I tested all this on my system
