ST2&ST3 crashes while opening file browser dialog


Problem: Sublime crashes when it tries to open the file browser dialog on my system.

Steps to reproduce: one of the following ->

  • File>Open
  • File>Save
  • Project>‘Add folder to project’

I use Debian. I have to ‘Force quit’ the application, unfortunately.

My configuration:

  • Fresh installed Sublime Text 3 Stable, build 3065.
  • Linux CrunchBang Linux 11 “Waldorf” 64bit (= Debian based)

What I tried:

  • I searched for logs. Can’t find those.
  • I tried to use an ‘Open file’ dialog in other applications. This works.
  • I deleted my configuration files and reinstalled S2 as well as S3. The problem still exists.

I now use Geany as text editor, but dang, want to go back to Sublime as soon as possible :smile: Any suggestions? What could this be?



Sublime still does crash on my computer, on “File Open”, “File Save” and other operations where the file dialog should open.

Does anyone know what file dialog software Sublime 2/3 utilizes (Debian)? If I know the name, maybe I can find logs for it.

Thank you in advance!



I have the same problem. I’m using RHEL6 though.



i’m aware this is a very old thread but i’d still like to reply in case i can help people googling this problem :slight_smile:
i had the same problem and in my case it was wrong permissions on /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled. apparently this file was installed with 0600 root:root permissions, so no user could read it (it might be connected to the fact that i am using a 0077 umask on my system).

TL;DR: sudo chmod 644 /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled

fixed my problem.
