Description of problem:
Attempting to create an archive within an unwriteable directory causes
a silent failure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open "browse filesystem"
2. navigate to a known non-writeable directory
3. right click on a folder
4. select "create archive"
5. accept the proffered name by hitting "create"
Actual Results: File Roller says "getting the file list" then goes
away. No archive created, no error report.
Expected Results: At a minimum, display an error explaining the
reason for the failure; Better yet, provide options (e.g. enter root
password, provide alternate destination, etc)
It would be cool if the archive name dialog also included archive
options (e.g. compression type)
On fc3 I get:
Could not create the archive
You don't have permission to create an archive in this folder
