Bug Description

I had one window with 2 tabs open. I right clicked on a .py file, then selected "open with other application". The dialog box came up, and all it showed was gedit, so I just canceled out of it. Then both the dialog box and the window with 2 tabs both dissappeared ( I assume it was a crash ). And Yes this is a fresh install, only about a couple days ago.

Is this still reproducible by you? Could you provide a backtrace by gdb attaching to the nautilus process?

An example gdb session like following: (you need type in the part after "$" or "(gdb)" till line ends.)

$ pidof nautilus
$ sudo gdb 2>&1 | tee gdb-nautilus.txt
(gdb) attach 8677
(gdb) cont
< reproduce the crash >
(gdb) backtrace full

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, your crash report is either missing or challenging to deal with as a ".crash" file. Please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer.

If you are running the Ubuntu Stable Release you might need to enable apport in /etc/default/apport and restart.

Now open your file manager, navigate to your /var/crash directory and open the crash report you wish to submit.
If this fails you will have to open a terminal and file your report with 'ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash' where _my_crash_report.crash is the crash you would like to report. If you get an error that you aren't allowed to access this report you will have to file it with 'sudo ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash'.

I'm closing this bug report since the process outlined above will automatically open a new bug report which can then dealt with more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Changed in nautilus (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Invalid
