Description Carl Gherardi 2003-11-11 01:31:55 UTC

Description of problem:
When I "drag and drop" files from a standard dvd player (currently a
photo cd with about 100 photos) to my desktop for temporary transfer,
the copy works then I get the following message

Error while moving

/mnt/cdrom...x.jpg cannot be moved because it is a read-only disk

Skip Cancel Retry

None of these options is preferable, as there are a >100 files on the
cd, and I have to click skip or cancel for each one, which is a bit
frustrating, and something a normal desktop user wouldn't stand for.

Perhaps if the directory being moved is not writable it should default
to a copy, not a move?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount cd with lots of files
2. Drag and drop to desktop
3. Be frustrated hiting the mouse button or enter

Actual Results:  see above

Expected Results:  I believe it should have "realized" that the
directory being copied was not writable, and defaulted to copying not

There should also be a skip all function in the dialog referenced.

Additional info:

Laptop, no nfs or autofs used.

Keeping up with latest rawhide every few days.
