as you might know there is now xfce 4.8 available on OpenEmbedded core/meta .
I have been working on this for a while and would like to fix a problem with
Since xfce 4.8 / thunar 1.2.x starting thunar crashes with segfault. I started
debugging and found in thunar-application.c line 1075:
thunar_application_process_files (ThunarApplication *application)
_thunar_return_if_fail (THUNAR_IS_APPLICATION (application));
/* don't do anything if no files are to be processed */
if (application->files_to_launch == NULL)
/* take the next file from the queue */
file = THUNAR_FILE (application->files_to_launch->data);
/* retrieve the screen we need to launch the file on */
screen = g_object_get_qdata (G_OBJECT (file), thunar_application_screen_quark);
/* resolve the file and/or mount its enclosing volume
* before handling it in the callback */
thunar_browser_poke_file (THUNAR_BROWSER (application), file, screen,
When I step through this, the variable 'screen' is NULL after call of
'g_object_get_qdata' and 'thunar_browser_poke_file' causes segfault.
I don't understand what this code is intended to do, but I think the variable
screen should not be NULL.
Does anybody have an idea what might cause 'g_object_get_qdata' return NULL and
what can be done to fix/workaround? I have the feeling that it might be just a
configuration or dependency missing...
