Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and help make Ubuntu better.

This bug has already been reported as bug 1754169. Therefore, I'm marking this a duplicate.

I don't think it is a duplicate of the gedit bug. Or maybe I have a different and undeclared bug.

On Wayland (not X11), gnome or ubuntu, Nautilus crashes when clicking on ANY file (mp3, avi, pdf, txt etc.), nautilus closes suddenly. Replicated on two different instances of Bionic on the same PC. Both with nvidia (nouveau driver).

Nemo works well.
It seems to be a problem with a recent version of Nautilus, since I have been testing Bionic on Wayland for at least a month without noticing this quite obvious problem.

My Bionic version was installed on March 8 (daily build iso with updates).

Agreed with Francoise, I see the same behaviour.

@jeremy Can you reopen this bug?

Indeed, what Francoise is saying is true. If I click on any file in my nautilus, nautilus crash.

This is not problem of gedit.

Francoise, geez, cubells: This is happening with a lot of GTK+ apps, not just Nautilus. Notice the linked bug is assigned to mutter, not gedit. That's why it's a duplicate.

Michael: I'll wait for mutter update and test if bug is solved or not.

I can confirm that bug is solved with mutter patch.
