gedit "Save As..." gtk_file_selector does not include network mounted volumes
Last modified: 2013-09-02 01:57:06 EDT
The gedit "Open File..." dialog includes volumes (sftp) that I have
network mounted from nautilus. However, the "Save As..."
gtk_file_selector does not include these volumes. I have write access
to the volumes as I can click'n'drag files to/from in nautilus.
In talking with alex on IRC, it was suggested that the app must set
gtk_file_chooser_set_local_only(foo, FALSE) to enable remote files.
It appears in gedit/gedit-file-selector-util.c:478 in run_file_selector()
gtk_file_chooser_set_local_only (GTK_FILE_CHOOSER (dialog),
May do this, but I cannot determine what the value of enable_vfs is at
I think this would require to use gnome-vfs in gedit to save files. Otherwise
the would show the volumes but would not be able to save in them.
This is filed upstream:
