I agree with that! And someone should tell to gnome guys to use something more efficent than xml!

Yep, after deleting the file and restarting gnome-shell it seems to be fast, but a few opened files later its annoying slow again. that was always the case. the crash on searching some programs is new. that seems to be part of "tracker"? does anyone like this new service that is steeling cputime indexing and having absoluteley no benefit from it?

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

Hi !
I’m pretty sure it has to do with the Gnome-shell theme too !
I have downgraded to nvidia 290, BUT I’m using another Shell theme than the default one. I’m using Heavy Metal : the search in Activities crashes gnome-shell.
I’m reverting to the default gnome-shell theme : the search is working fine.
Same thing with Drakfire dream theme…
Now I know that I can re-upgrade to nvidia 295.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

Well  I think the crash that you mention is more of a freeze, the crash that happens with the new nvidia drivers results some times in restart of the gnome-shell or totally crash with the log out window...

The chattr +i workaround just do the job, thank you!! Now it's a matter of time, I hope nvidia will eventually solve this annoying bug.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

It's not just when searching. Gnome shell crashed several times today, seems pretty random. Most of the time I was browsing in Chromium.

Feb 26 15:55:19 morpheus kernel: [ 2076.323998] threaded-ml[1468]: segfault at 10 ip 00007f0e5f594c0f sp 00007f0e398296b8 error 6 in libnvidia-tls.so.295.20[7f0e5f594000+3000]

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

Crashed again. Eclipse appears in the log too now, probably because of nvidia crashing.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

I'm from Debian and encountered the same issue. For me, Evolution also crashed on receiveing mail. I just wanted to say that making '~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel' empty and immutable solved the search issue but NOT Evolution's crash. Only downgrading to nVidia v290.10 fixed both issues.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

It's definitively on nVidia then. However, I seem to be lucky. I don't have any other application crashes except for the gnome crash which i resolved. It may also depend on the hardware. I have a pcie Nvidia 9600GT (gigabyte's make).

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

I had the same problem, downgrading nvidia and utils didn't work for me (x wouldn't start, probably because of my newer kernel), however deleting recently-used.xbel is working so far. (I didn't chattr +i, just a single delete so far, but we'll see how long that lasts).
EDIT: It doesn't work any more, gonna use the chattr +1....

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

The chatrr +i thingy solved my problem since the 295.20.1, had no issues what so ever once I lock the file, I am playing now with the 295.20-2 and with a unlocked recently-used.xbel, would see how it behaves, so far after a few minutes is running with out problems.

Edit: 295.20-2 has the same problems, cahtrr +i again to avoid them.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

Reverting to driver 290 is no more possible with new kernel 3.2.8-1 !
Xorg server launch halts with error "nvidia : disagrees about version of symbil module_layout"

chattr +i works fine for me.
Thanks.

nah. We need to sit back and wait for the new nvidia driver, and hope that they (nvidia) fix the bug smile

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

It seems that the problem is deeper than just a crash in Shell or Evolution. So, for now, downgrading is a wise choice. See here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=661253

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

I have remove gnome-extra package group and it fixed the issue. Then I installed only the packages I needed (gnome-calc, empathy and some other 2 packages) and none caused issues.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

I don't understand why is there nouveau what seems to work just fine but if you wanna use some features in wine as 3D you get stack with non-working apps. So why arch developing two nvidia drivers what doesn't working on even 99% but one what works!

This seems to work:
echo "" > ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel

Application menus do indeed open very fast, and for me chattr +i  ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel fixed the issue. (as root)

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

Mine is only chrashing when I hit backspace in the gnome-shell search and the field is already empty. When I type VLC all is fine until you hit backspace.

In Debian, I compiled the latest kernel 3.2.11 (with TuxOnIce) and nvidia 290-10 worked with it seamlessly.

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

That is awesome. But there is one thing. I would still like for the gnome team to make it possible to disable recent history without touching the recently-used.xbel file. I kinda like it how gnome shell was faster without recent history smile

Disabling "recent items" has some drawbacks but can be done without touching recently-used.xbel and just by creating '~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini' with this in it:

[Settings]
gtk-recent-files-max-age=0

Re: [SOLVED] gnome shell crash on searching - nvidia 295.20-1

It looks like the Nvidia driver update today (and a restart) fixed the shell crashing on search for me.  Anyone else?
