Virtualbox won't open file chooser dialog on Gnome 3.22

When I try to open any file chooser dialog in Virtualbox this is what happens:

Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile

(VirtualBox:4447): Gdk-WARNING **: gdkwindow-x11.c:5554 drawable is not a native X11 window
Segmentation fault

Welcome to Arch Linux.

Can you tell us a bit more?  What is the host operating system? I assume that Arch Linux is the guest operating system, can you confirm?
What desktop environment / window manager are you trying to use? (KDE, Gnome, XFCE-4, i3, Openbox, ...)
Are you use Wayland or X11?
Do GUI programs work otherwise?  With which programs (specifically) are you encountering problems?

Edit:  Is this a new thing? Or has it never worked?

Thank you for the welcome.
This began to happen today after an upgrade and it was working fine before. I noticed it only in Virtualbox.

Are you absolutely certain you're on X11? Wayland is the default now.

It's Wayland. Sorry about that. So must be this Qt issue.

Confirmed.

If you start gnome on xorg you can use virtualbox without any issue.

Virtualbox does not receive wayland support.
There are many issues opened. Since Virtualbox Qt to wayland running in VM's.
Starts gnome with xorg is a good option.
For now I use vagrant a my problem disappear.

Re: Virtualbox won't open file chooser dialog on Gnome 3.22

Hi,

I'm sorry, quite a newbie here. I'm lost. I don't know what I should do, and it's been hours I'm looking for answers... I think I'm in the same case as mthvz.
I'm on gnome too. when I launch virtualbox and try to open a window (file chooser), it crashes with a segmentation fault.

How am I suppose to start gnome with xorg ?

Re: Virtualbox won't open file chooser dialog on Gnome 3.22

you must disable it in the configfile.My location is /etc/gdm:

sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf

# Uncoment the line below to force the login screen to use Xorg
#WaylandEnable=false

remove # save and reboot.Thats it
