Rubbish-bin applet causes cinnamon to crash
Last modified: 2016-12-20 10:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
Cinnamon completely crashes when trying to empty the bin using the panel applet.
It does not happen all the time but quite often.
I've been using the beta for two weeks (as main OS) and it happens 4-5 times a day.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Add the "Rubbish bin" applet to the panel and select "Empty rubbish bin"
Steps to Reproduce:
1. click on the applet "Rubbish Bin" in the panel
2. select "Empty rubbish bin"
3. select "Yes" when prompted
An error appears saying that cinnamon has crashed (no codes or other info). Cinnamon completely disappear and after 3-4 seconds a screen asks if you want to restart cinnamon.
After "yes" is selected, cinnamon restarts and everything works fine.
The bin is emptied without errors/crashes.
It does not happen all the time
If you want it fixed you can report it upstream as you probably wouldn't like my solution (delete the trash applet during the rpmbuild as I consider it worthless).
thank you, I created a request there too.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
