    Unhappy Annoying S11.1 Gnome2.24 bug: Desktop Folder Crash

    Hi everyone,

    A few days ago I've installed openSUSE 11.1. I'm using Gnome 2.24 as desktop environment. I must say that I'm very satisfied with this newest release of my favorite distribution.

    There's only one thing bothering me:
    Every time I boot, eject or insert a DVD, CD, USB-memorystick or whatever removable medium Bug Buddy pops up and tells me the "Open Folder Application has crashed.
    Then all my desktop icons disappear and come back again after a few seconds.

    The bug report tells me this:
    Distribution: openSUSE 11.1 (i586)

    I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but right after I booted openSUSE for the first time I logged in as root and deleted the openSUSE and Help icons from my desktop.

    Does anyone have any idea how to solve this annoying bug? I sure hope so because I can't find any other solution or bug report anywhere else.

    Thanks in advance!

    Happy holidays!

    After a few days trying I haven't been able to find the cause of this bug. It's still not leaving me alone.

    I sure hope anyone can help me!

    Thanks, Roel

    I'd just love to chime in and say a happy "me too". However; I get my error on a clean install from DVD. I haven't gotten around to deleting those 2 icons yet (which must be done as root; thank yous for more useless "features" go to the devel team).

    Same here.

    The last the that gets dumped to .xsession-errors is:

    Code:
    *** glibc detected *** nautilus: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00007fff71f38328 ***
    The funny thing is it worked initially (I think).

    Got the same problem when installing a opensuse 11.1 with gnome.
    very annoying, for me i found a workaround:
    I did a new install with both the "automatic configuration" and the "fast install" option turned off.
    Good luck

    hi everyone!

    I'm sorry for the late reply, but I was skiing in Germany for the last week.

    I've tried some things to fix this bug.
    The last thing I tried was creating a new user. This initially fixed the bug, until I changed the link "roel's Home" to "Roel's Home" - the bug popped up again. After changing Roel back to roel it disappeared again.

    Did anyone of you change this link too?

    Greetings, Roel

    OK, it has nothing to do with changing the name of the folder.

    But, what is it

    Is this bug officially acknowledged? Is it fixed in an update? I find it so strange that while this bug is extremely annoying, neither has anything been said about it in the "most annoying bugs section" at the opensuse website, nor has it been acknowledged as an official bug (or my sources must be mistaken).

    Does anyone have more information?

    Thanks, Roel

    I had a colleague tell me about this, but I don't know if there is already a bug report. This is unique to Gnome, .... why not raise a bug report your self ?

    That's not entirely true. I got rid of those 2 annoying icons without root access. In fact, if you use the Gnome configuration editor (gconf-editor... the icon that looks like a little car) then you can find the entry there. I can't remember what I searched for but it was something like "desktop" or "icon" and was able to find it. It lists a directory where icons/programs can be placed by the administrator in order to be "mandatory" on every desktop. I deleted the path is gconf-editor and the icons disappeared.

    (Sorry I can't be of more help. I actually deleted Suse and installed Mandriva over it. OpenSuse 11.1 was giving me way too many troubles to be worth keeping)
