Class: Bug fix
Difficulty: Not complicated
Time: Five or ten minutes, if everything's done correctly
Desirability: On latest respins this shouldn't be necessary any more

It has come up a lot lately that the links on the left hand side of the file browser cause it to crash. This is the result of a bug in an update and can be easily fixed with the following steps.

Open a terminal (ctl+alt+T) and enter:

Code:
apt update
apt purge pcmanfm2 pcmanfm2-dbg
apt install pcmanfm


This will fix the file browser after you log out and log back in.

You will also need to fix the launcher on your taskbar. To do that right click on the file cabinet icon (next to the menu) and select "Application Launch Bar" Settings. In the window it opens select the file file manager on the left and click "remove", then select the file manager from the Accessories drop down on the right and click "add".

Now when you use the icons on the left side of your file manager they should work instead of crashing.
