Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 151316
Context menu items tell sweet little lies
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:09:37 EST
Description of problem: In RHEL3 U5 (and possibly earlier), context-clicking on
a file, folder, or group of selected items and attempting to choose the 'Cut' or
'Copy' actions does not actually cause the cut or copy action to occur.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): nautilus-2.2.4-6.E
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click on file or folder
2. Choose 'Cut' or 'Copy'
3. Navigate to another folder and try to paste
Actual results: The 'Paste' action is not available because there is nothing
that is cut or copied.
Expected results: The selected files and/or folders should be cut and/or copied
and available to paste.
This is fixed in later versions, It might even be parly fixed in RHEL4. The full
fix depends on the XFixes X extension which is not in RHEL4, but the workaround
for non-XFixes might be. At least it'll be in the next RHEL release.
