I thought I had a fairly good lmde64 install, straight from the last iso. After some days of use, however, I discovered a particular sensibility to PDF.
When I open a PDF file with Evince (I do not have Acrobat Reader), it's opening, briefly, then I see a nice screen, with a sad computer icon face in the center and the following text:
Oh! mince! Quelque chose s'est mal passé.
Un problème est survenu et le système ne peut pas se récupérer.
Déconnectez-vous et essayez à nouveau.
If this is not clear for you, well, I tried to reboot using Grub "mode dépannage" (repair mode). No way to get the system working, but this time I had a sad computer icon face in the center and the following text: (we are making progress...)
Oh no! Something has gone wrong
A problem has occured and the system can't recover.
Please log out and try again.
Which basically is an appropriate translation to the above text.
No way to get the system working again. I had to reinstall my system using Clonezilla (five minutes). I did it already five times so I can say that this bug is solidly in place in my system.
Now my system looks like being in perfect order but I know that if I try to open a PDF, it will crash again.
I would like to squash this bug and make a nice bug report and I am looking for expert advice (with not too many PDF openings..).
I tried to check pdf file with an antivirus (Clamav): no problem
I tried to open a pdf file with Acrobat Reader9 : crash of Gnome 3 (Cinnamon)
Mate is unconcerned by this. It works normally and I can open any pdf files using Acrobat Reader without trouble.
Just Gnome 3 is gone with the wind.
