Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 135874
Folder with non-ascii chars in name dragged to panel can't be opened
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
Dragging a nautilus folder icon to the panel will create a launcher to
open the folder. However if the name of the folder has non-ascii
chars in it the launcher doesn't work, since the folder name vfs URI
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create folder with non-ascii (eg. "Ã¸") in the name
2. Drag nautilus folder icon to panel
3. Try to open the folder from the panel
Folder doesn't open, insted error dialog is shown:
Couldn't find "/home/bongo/Desktop/C3B8"
Folder should open.
Hmm, the problem is that the panel apparently interprets %f etc in the
commandline. One possible fix would be to escape the % in the uri to %%.
Another solution would be to instead of creating an Application
lauchcher with cmdline nautilus -- 'uri', create a Link launcher with
just the given uri.
As of gnome-panel-2.8.1-2, I can no longer reproduce the bug. Closing.
