Samples of dosuments states opened from Nautilus Recent
Description of problem: as a result of an upgrade from Fedora Desktop v. 27 to v. 28 beta, Items permissions were not preserved in Recent. Recent is durably corrupted in such a way so that documents which are editable at their respective locations are now automatically set to read-only when they are opened from Recent.
Version-Release number of selected component: nautilus.x86_64 184.108.40.206-1.fc28
(component involved possibly different)
How reproducible: Assumed that –on Gnome– Settings -> Privacy -> Usage History option is set to On (ideally with option Retain set o Forever for this testing case). Execute 'dnf system-upgrade -y download --refresh–releasever=28'.
Actual results: Nautilus' items listed in Recent –which were all local– have all been changed to read-only (attachments). None of them were with those read-sets before the upgrade took place.
Applying to them the option Remove from Recent and then opening items from their respective locations, and then renewing the openings From Recent has no effect on the existing states (read-only).
Expected results: Recent not to be corrupted that way.
Additional info: In Gnome.
Operation was applied today to an other laptop with the same effects.
Issue not tied specifically to component dnf-plugin-system-upgrade, since it occurs as well in context of a fresh install from Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-28-1.1.iso image file.
If this is happening with dnf system-upgrade and also with fresh installation it can't be caused by Anaconda. Anaconda is not used at all by dnf system-upgrade. For me this looks like a gnome component is broken when upgraded/installed on Fedora 28.
Changing component to gnome-shell they should have better idea which component is responsible for these recent documents.
gnome-shell isn't involved at all here, let's try gvfs' recent backend ...
It is nautilus issue, see:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. 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that are no longer maintained.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' of '28'.
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 28 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 28 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-05-28. Fedora 28 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.
