This problem Of Gnome Sushi has persisted long time in Debian Stretch. It is connected to the preview manager, Sushi, in the file manager, which breaks the system

  • if you type any other key before the loading preview window is successful.
  • or you repetedly open Sushi with space - - I think the problem is connected with pressing some other key while the preview window of Sushi is not yet loaded.

I do not find the approriate bug report about the case here in the Nautilus bug tracker. Procedure

  1. Press space to preview a file, etc a big .ppt/.pdf/... file.
  2. Try to move away from the file, while the system is loading the preview.
  3. Result: keyboard is not sensititive any more, only mouse moves, but no TTY switch works etc.

Verified the problem with 10th Jan 2018 Debian version too in the second hardware.

OS: Linux Debian Stretch 9.1
Window manager: Gnome stable
Ticket: Gnome Nautilus here
Hardware: Asus Zenbook UX303UA R4028T

    Nautilus had a lot of bugs last years, even in the "stable" releases. You have a good chance of finding a new or a reported one. bugzilla.gnome.org/page.cgi?id=browse.html&product=nautilus – Ipor Sircer Dec 13 '17 at 11:05
  • @IporSircer I sent an issue report there, please see the body. Let's hope we get the problem more focused such that we can understand how it is there. – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Jan 10 '18 at 20:27
