( SOLVED ) File manager


When I want to access the file manager, it opens.
When I want to open a file, the manager disappears and a window announces:
"Unable to start file manager.
Input / output error

Is this Thunar you are using?

Yes Dobbie thunar 4.16.6

This is from the update this morning. Another pc with Archlabs without the update is working …

Had the same error today, latest update will fix it. GTK3 needed updating.


Good call @sammiev

and so i threw off thunar and replaced it with pcmanfm


I never struck this issue.

It was updated shortly after the release, would think most people wouldn’t have known about the problem.

Another issue, pending fixed in 4.16.7

Notice that a few days back, when sending something to the trash you needed to wait till your next boot to empty the trash.
Isn’t it fun living on the edge? :joy:


Now, I will get up later, when the fault is repaired …

There’re other options for a file manager
