Pressing space to get a preview of a file hangs the shell when unoconv is not installed
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:36:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I wanted to get a preview of an xls file.
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
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.
The preview, or a suggestion to install unoconv
