PCManFM Segmentation fault when trying to open two windows

Hi

It seems to be a bug, but I don't know if it's Arch, or upstream related, so first of all I will post here.

What happens: When trying to open two different windows of the file manager PCManFM, it crashes systematically.

How to reproduce: Open an terminal, type "pcmanfm"; pcmanfm is now open. Open another terminal, or another tab, type "pcmanfm"; pcmanfm is now closed. Go back to the first term, and you'll see "Segmentation fault"

I can only open 2 instances by using File -> New Window.  Apparently this is fixed in the 0.9.8-3 version that is currently in [testing]

Okay
So there's nothing to do, just wait the next version ?

Because I'm not planning to install lxde or something else... hmm

While PCManFM is broken and rather annoying, note that you can open new tabs and windows from within the PCManFM window that already have open.

Yep, I'm using this function since I noticed that bug but it'll be cool if this problem could be fixed in the near future ^^

Re: PCManFM Segmentation fault when trying to open two windows

just fyi, I installed pacman-git and it is capable of running multiple instances.  Not really the answer I first sought, but it works for now.


Sometimes I just want people to expect me to do what I would do instead of what most people would do.
