Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1290234
open voices freezes gui
Last modified: 2016-12-20 11:51:38 EST
Description of problem:
While searching for "voi" and then selecting "Open voices" freezes the GUI, keyboard stops working, only the mouse is working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Display Activities (move mouse to top-left corner, or use the Win key)
2. Search for "voi"
3. Select "Open voices"
GUI and keyboard freeze, only mouse cursor movement works. Ntification about an application missing dependencies is displayed.
No freeze, stable behavior
The component is probably incorrect.

Can you get a coredump/backtrace please. This is very difficult to debug with such limited information.
If I search in Activities for open document (.odt, .od etc.) files, it returns a result that seems to be associated with Gnumeric application by default (although I've got Libre Office installed).
If I click on the Gnumeric icon or the search results under the Gnumeric icon, the GNOME crashes as described initially.
Little explanation why this bz is named the way it is: apparently the GNOME tracker (which is in really sorry state IMO) searches the contents of files by default, so it matched the "voi" to "Open Voices" string in my ~/Downloads/open_hardware_source.odt first. If I click on that, it crashes.
Hopefully this can be worked around by better default configuration of tracker in Activities...
So, this isn't a bug you experience when using gnome-software? i.e. the application installer...
No, this happens when I search in gnome-activities-journal.
I'm sorry for confusion (as I mentioned in Additional info).
Component changed accordingly.
A workaround is to exclude the Documents application group from Search in Settings.
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
cannot reproduce in f25
