[SOLVED] Xfce4 Settings: Segmentation fault

I'm running Xfce4. The system is freshly updated. As you can see below, when I run some programs, I get segmentation faults. The program windows do open and any changes I make do take effect, however, when I close it (by clicking the "Close" button), I get this fault.

$ xfce4-notifyd-config
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
$ xfce4-display-settings
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
$ xfce4-about
xfce4-about-Message: No vendor information found in "/usr/share/xfce4/vendorinfo".
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
$ xfce4-keyboard-settings
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Here's an strace of `xfce4-notifyd-config`. I'm not sure where to go from here.

All of your commands work and exit cleanly without a core dump for me.
Have you tried this as a different user to see if it is a config file problem for this particular user?

I know you wrote that your system is freshly updated, but please run pacman -Syu. Do you have any xfce packages from AUR installed?

This is a freshly installed system :-\

I run `packman -Syu` a few times a day. I don't use AUR for anything at all.

I noticed this happens with Claws-Mail too. Claws works fine, but when I quit, I get a crash. I'm starting to suspect something with dbus maybe or some missing library.

Re: [SOLVED] Xfce4 Settings: Segmentation fault

I just noticed I'm getting dmesg logs whenever this happens. It's actually happening in many more programs than I thought; Almost all of them! Claws-Mail, liferea, Thunar, mousepad, firefox....etc.

I do have intel-ucode installed, but I'm not sure if I need it. I'm on a Intel Core i5-6600 (Skylake).

Re: [SOLVED] Xfce4 Settings: Segmentation fault

Using nvidia binary drivers, I assume? There are plenty of other thread on this.

Ah! After searching for this, the exact problem came up. I never through to blame Nvidia's drivers. Sorry for another thread!

Well the issue still isn't fixed. There's a updated nvidia package in the testing repo currently. I'm waiting for it to move to extra. The comments on the bug report seem to imply the update fixes this issue, so I'll make this as solved anyway.

Thanks!
