They might look native on my Gtk3 Cinnamon desktop, didn't get that far yet. Not my problem you use Motif or Xaw or Tk, some of us like to get with the time, apart from the C64.

At least the non-native stuff works. Have you tried the flathub or the snap packages? It's bollocks.

They use the GtkFileChooserNative (https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/gtk3-GtkFileChooserNati..)

That blows.

I reckon credits for Slammer/Turtles are wrong.
Probably should be Slammer/Camelot, right?

Thanks. I filled a bug at NFD here:
https://github.com/mlabbe/nativefiledialog/issues/84

I tried to debug it on my own and understand the issue, the problem is it does not crash at all on my Debian Jessie, which is a bit tricky to debug then :)

Note, that you can always change dialogs to my own implementation anyway in Settings/UI/Use system dialogs, just set to "No" and instead of GTK you'll see my own simple open/save file dialogs.

Btw. I used gtk_file_chooser_dialog_new in my previous GTK dialogs implementation, but apparently it locked whole app badly. That was probably also due to missing GMainLoop. I've seen a possibility to create our own GMainLoop temporarily and was using that trick (i.e. so the event loop was set to that temporary one just for the time when dialog was opened), which worked OK on some older systems, but not now anymore.

I guess I need to change NFD GTK dialogs to also allow Zenity implementation and make these GTK system dialogs not set as default. Anyway, thanks again for your help.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Let's see what the NFD dev has to say.

I'm using your (X11) dialogs, that works fine for me. I don't need a fancy UI for a tool to be useful.

As if those problems dont exist in native closed source GUIs, they suck just as bad :)
