Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1280356
Nautilus copy progress window not closing
Last modified: 2016-12-20 10:41:05 EST
Description of problem:
When copying files using Nautilus, the copy animation starts at top right. When I click it to see more details, window opens as it should but if I try to close it either by clicking on the Close button or clicking outside the copy window nothing happens and copy animation usually freezes. Only solution to this I found so far is to close the whole Nautilus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable)
GNOME nautilus 3.18.1
Open nautilus copy file from one location to another and click the copy icon on top right.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start copying files
2. Click the copy icon
Closing the copy window did not work.
Clicking the Close button of the copy window or clicking outside the copy in the nautilus should close the copy window.
Sorry for my English and sorry if I forgot to mention something important as this is my first bug report.
The copy progress dialog as a whole is more or less useless.
- You do not see which files get copied atm , so no chance to restart it at the same position
- If subdirectories are involved, the progress bar jumps from sub dir to sub dir, without showing the real progress ( in files and size )
- Stopping the progress takes AGES , sometimes 10 minutes after it actually stopped, it's still shown.
I have to copy TB of Data atm and switched to TAR cv | TAR x -C to have usefull progressindication while copying. Sometimes i believe, some developers do not use theire own products themselves ;)
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
