Rejected Information


Wonder if someone can review Nautilus in terms of providing a bigger flexibility into it usage.

For example:

1) if I try to open a .desktop file into ~.config/autostart, by right clicking on such file, then I cannot choose any editor to view/edit it

2) if I try to move/copy/cancel... a file into a folder wherein I have not permissions, Nautilus refuses, why don't offer to select a "su" option in order to avoid making such kind of operations by exiting Nautilus and using the terminal?

I think it would be better to request this on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/

Yes, Thomas is right there; that's really the kind of things that should be submitted to upstream bugzilla.

(I can't close the fate entry, fwiw)

To answer your specific examples:

  • I believe in the past that it was possible to edit desktop files with right-click. It might be a new design choice, or a bug in the port to gio.
  • it's a conscious design decision to not propose any "su" feature in nautilus. I honestly don't think this will change.
