Description Jiri Prajzner 2018-04-11 11:38:41 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1566026 +++

Description of problem:
if i select all files in my home directory and let nautilus compute the contents size, it cycles itself in a range and never provides the final value that i expect

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to your home directory
2. make sure hidden files are displayed
3. select all and click properties

Actual results:
the contents field is never computed

Expected results:
the value in the contents field oscillates within a range, both number of items and the totaling value

Additional info:

Comment 2 Jiri Prajzner 2018-04-11 12:16:05 UTC
"the value in the contents field oscillates within a range, both number of items and the totaling value" this belongs to Actual results.

The Expected results are that there's a final value of the contents field.

Do you have any symbolic link loop inside?

Comment 4 Jiri Prajzner 2018-04-13 06:59:01 UTC
i guess no, since find -L ~ executes just fine and doesn't report any symlink loops

Comment 5 Carlos Soriano 2018-04-13 07:03:56 UTC
Can you report upstream then? Would be good to have a reproducer too.

Comment 7 Ondrej Holy 2020-01-09 15:46:57 UTC
I can reproduce it on my Fedora, when I select all files in .config and show properties. Interestingly, it works properly if I show properties for .config itself. This would be really nice to fix.

Comment 10 Michael Boisvert 2020-06-10 18:49:06 UTC
Item properties works correctly under nautilus-3.28.1-13.el8 with hidden files displayed.
