Ubuntu: Thunar crashes when renaming files


When I am renaming files one at a time Thunar closes, it doesn't give an error message, it just closes all open instances of Thunar. Then I can open the GUI windows again to rename a few more files before it blinks out again!

When I do a bulk rename by selecting a bunch of files and pressing F2 key it does not crash?

It's probably the same as : Q: Thunar crashes when copying file and : Q: Thunar 1.6.6 Crashing When Moving .docx File

Found and sent the crash report here: /var/crash/_usr_bin_thunar.1000.crash enter image description here enter image description here


I'm running XUbuntu 16.04 "Xenial Xerus" and this bug is still present in Thunar version 1.6.10.

I've created a PPA hosting DEB packages that fix this bug for the following *Ubuntu releases (32 bits and 64 bits):

  • Wily Werewolf (*Ubuntu 15.10)
  • Xenial Xerus (*Ubuntu 16.04)
  • Yakkety Yak (*Ubuntu 16.10)


https://tuxdiary.com/2016/06/10/fix-thunar-crash-move-rename/ also has the following information on this problem and the solution

How to confirm the bug

$ mkdir thunar_test $ cd thunar_test $ Thunar . $ for i in $(seq 1 10); do touch "$i.txt"; done $ while true; do for i in $(seq 1 10); do mv "$i.txt" "$i.txt.txt"; done; sleep 1; for i in $(seq 1 10); do mv "$i.txt.txt" "$i.txt"; done; sleep 1; done

Build with patch or install patched binary

You can follow the instruction and build Thunar by yourself or download prebuilt binary for Core i5 & i7 CPUs there.
