Found a bug in Thunar 1.6.10


The first screenshot illustrate a working menu. The 2nd one illustrate a broken menu. What I have to do is change

1. View > Side Pane > Shortcuts instead of Tree

2. Click on the Network Icon and then

3. View > Side Pane > Tree to get it back working after a restart.

Is there a fix for the bug?

If you want install xfce4-4.12 with thunar-1.6.12, on slack-14.2 it's simple

just download the current the source here:

download also vte current version here:

http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackwar.../source/l/vte/

Why upgrade for a non-existing bug?

Stock Slackware Thunar-1.6.10 works here as expected (Slint 14.2 bases on Slackware 14.2).

However, I have seen this is the Changelog:
Code:
Tue Aug 23 19:45:33 UTC 2016
<snip>
patches/packages/glib2-2.46.2-i586-3_slack14.2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Applied upstream patch to fix a use-before-allocate bug in libgio.  Without
  this fix, Thunar will crash if $HOME is on an NFS volume.
  Thanks to Jonathan Woithe.
I don't know if this is related to that, but PROBLEMCHYLD, please check that your glib2 is at that version.

Other that that, my assumption would be an issue caused by some specificity of your system, so I won't consider this a bug unless/until it can be reproduced on a clean and fully patched Slackware 14.2.

Apparently, I'm not the only one who has witness this bug. So it might be an XFCE/Thunar problem. System is updated and tried the latest thunar. No cigar....

This thread is more than two years old...

If no other Slackware user encounters the same issue, and if you can reproduce it an a fresh installation (no third party package) you could report it upstream.

Not really sure if it a Slackware bug or xfce/thunar. I just hope we can get it fixed.

I'm not convinced that everybody in this thread is talking about the same problem -- they look like at least two different problems, but I could be wrong. I've experienced the double "File System" problem myself; I just used the one at the bottom that worked, and ignored the other one until it went away. No big deal. Life's too short.

Problemchyld, considering that upgrading Thunar didn't solve your problem, and considering that some other people don't see the same problem, there might be something wrong with the hidden settings in your .config/ directory or .local/ directory -- possibly not Thunar settings but gvfs, gtk, xfce, gconf etc -- you could try creating a completely new username, and see if it has the same problem.

No they are the same issue. In Thunar's side panel "Tree" view there are two "File System" branches. when I click on the top one, it appears that it is trying to browse the network with network:/// in the address bar (see my screenshot in my first post) but just stalls there indicating that it's "Loading...". Clicking on the bottom "File System" branch results is getting the expected view of the root file system.

Now when you switch to Thunars Side Panel view to "Shortcut" there is "File System" link which behaves like the bottom "File System" in the Side Panel Tree view. There is also a "Network" link. Clinking on this links results in getting the same network:/// address in the address bar and a "Windows Network" icon in the main Thunar panel. Now when I switch back to the Tree view,"File System" branch is replaced by a "Network" branch and remains this way until I either reboot or log out.

Here's a video of it: https://youtu.be/Hi2MuIgADcE

I see this behavior on my Salix64, Salix32 and Slint 14.2 installations. The video is from Salix 14.2 VM in Virtualbox.

Yes, I also ignored this since the release of 14.2 but just wanted to confirm Probemchyld problem.

For the record, I've never clicked on any Thunar 'network' thing in my life until the other day to investigate the OP's problem, so, if this is just one problem, the 'network' thing might be a sufficient condition but is not a necessary condition.

Anyway, as I said previously, anybody who cares about this should maybe look into the per-user settings. Hypothetically, something like gvfs hasn't gracefully handled seeing the settings from its own previous version.

Not sure what protocol it tries first, but hitting "File System" link should lead to local "/" if not then it's a bug.
I don't use the network functionality either, in fact I've rebuilt a system without gvfs, nfs or smb functions.
Here it doesn't get stuck on loading, when I hit "Network" it just throws an error:

Sorry, but I cannot replicate the bug here on Slackware64-14.2 with Thunar 1.6.10
The first attached screenshot is what I see using the view in your first screenshot. (I note that you appear to have a wireless network compared to my wired network and that root is accessible in your screenshot)
The second attached screenshot is what I see when I click on the Network icon. The machines on the network show as expected.
Perhaps this is a networking issue.

it's been a long while but i once had a problem with thunar getting hung up on some remote location that wasn't there.
it was possible to adjust some setting in some dependency, but iirc the problem never went away completely.
sorry i can't be more specific.
I guess I'm just suggesting to maybe broaden your troubleshooting efforts.

also, xfce have a forum. tried there? search first?
