GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 711480
nautilus unable to set image from Internet as icon
Last modified: 2014-02-17 21:20:59 UTC
Unable to set as icons, image files directly from the Internet
Nautilus Crashes and the desktop icons disappear for ~4-5 sec
- Create a .desktop file (Application Shortcut in my case) in gedit .
- Set it as executable
- Go to the file's properties by right clicking on it -> Properties
- Click on its icon on top right corner.
- A dialog box appears to choose an icon for the file.
- Click the pencil icon at the top right corner and enter link to any image from the internet (like: http://design.ubuntu.com/wp-content/uploads/ubuntu-logo32.png)
- The file is downloaded and set as an icon for the file
The window disappears and all icons from the desktop vanish for few seconds and then reappear
Expected icon is not set

Thanks for the bug report. This particular bug has already been reported into our bug tracking system, but please feel free to report any further bugs you find.

Sorry, I pulled the trigger too earlier. This is actually a different bug, because the image is not from a remote mount but from the web, and results in a crash.
Without a stack trace from the crash it's very hard to determine what caused it.
Can you get us a stack trace? Please see http://live.gnome.org/GettingTraces for more information on how to do so. Thanks in advance!
Here's the stack trace

Thanks for the stack trace.
Unfortunately, this stack trace is missing some elements that will help a lot to solve the problem, so it will be hard for the developers to fix that crash. Can you get us a stack trace with debugging symbols? To do so, install these 3 packages:
Then repeat the procedures to get a new stacktrace. Thanks in advance!

Hope the latest one helps...
Yes, the latest one has complete debug information!
