Description fred 2015-08-21 05:49:28 EDT
Description of problem:

I wanted to get a preview of an xls file.

How reproducible:
When unoconv is not installed. Check the unoconv dependency, try with and without.

Components: gnome-shell, sushi, gnome-software

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Open nautilus and point it to a folder containing an xls
2. Press space to get a preview of the file

Actual results:

The shell hangs, forcing me to go to a tty.
With htop , I see that sushi start, gnome-software -gapplication and gnome-shell all consume an enormous amount of cpu, while gnome-shell go on a memory leak, allocating tens of Mo of ram every second.
Killing -9 sushi-start, and kill -2 gnome-shell allows me to restore my desktop session.
Some times, a notification suggesting ton install unoconv finally appears, but not always.

Expected results:
The preview, or a suggestion to install unoconv
