Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10965
GMC fails to handle URL files when name changed
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:13:58 EDT
When GMC has a window open, and you drag a URL (as from netscape, or and
existing one from the desktop) and right click and choose "properties", it
identifies it as a URL and allows you to work with it properly.
If you then double click on the name, and change then name, it then becomes
a "text file" and not URL. GMC should preserve the type as URL as it does
if you rename it on the desktop instead of in a directory.
Also, In the directory, a URL file named "http://bugzilla.redhat.com" on
the desktop, when draged to a directory, might be named something like
"urlIOIGkwF", adding to the need to rename it.
yeah -- this is a hard problem that can't be fixed with gmc. The problem with
that is that '/' is a special character, so something like
'http://bugzilla.redhat.com/' won't fly as a filename. Also, the internals of
GMC aren't well suited for displaying that well. Unfortunately, you'll have to
wait until nautilus before you'll be able to get that handled correctly.
