Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1462544
Editing from sftp / sshfs mounts done in nautilus not working
Last modified: 2017-07-22 10:24:43 EDT
Description of problem:
opening a file mount via sftp in nautilus: geany shows the file as if it had no content at all, and if "save" is invoked it will overwrite the original file, all the contents are lost, people can easily lose code due to this problem - even worse: this can haven with auto-save as well.
Reported upstream, not sure if this is due to upstream or related to Fedora packaging, GIO or other
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. in nautilus, mount any folder via sftp such as: sftp://yourname@yourIP/home/somename
2.browse the mount and find a python script, then Open it with Geany
Geany opens the file but shows no content at all. If you press Save by mistake, you will lose all your code.
Geany should show file contents
As this is reported to upstream with https://github.com/geany/geany/issues/893, there is no need to have this issue opened here. When the upstream bug gets fixed, the next update for Fedora will automatically included the fix.
