Description of problem:
Drag and drop from caja to terminator-1.91-4.fc28 does nothing.
(it should paste path and filename)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Downgrading terminator to F27 does not help and in F27 the drag/drop worked correctly.
Drag and drop from caja to other terminals and applications still works.
Version : terminator-1.91-8.fc29.noarch
Not tested with caja, but drag and drop from e.g. firefox does nothing either.
This behaviour is described in https://bugs.launchpad.net/terminator/+bug/1781562, and is fixed by :
< self.vte.feed_child(text, len(text))
See also bz#1573927.
fix to be applied to /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/terminatorlib/terminal.py .
Thanks for the fix, Didier!
I can confirm it works with Caja as well.
This issue is still present in terminator-1.91-9.fc30.noarch, and is still confirmed fixed by the provided one-liner patch in comment#1.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 29 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 29 on 2019-11-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained.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 '29'.
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 29 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.
@Davide : to prevent this issue being drawn into the hole of Fedora 29 oblivion, can you please change the version to Fedora 30 ?
Upstream bug, I think: https://bugs.launchpad.net/terminator/+bug/1781562
The inline patch from comment 1 works with python 2, but no longer with python 3. See bug 1573927 for details and pointer to a patch that supports python 3.
Just so that I don't have to do this lookup again, this patch is what Egmont is referring to
- self.vte.feed_child(text, len(text))
+ # See https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/vte/issues/201.
With a note that there are other similar changes that need to be made.
This was fixed in terminator-1.91-12 that I built earlier this week and is currently in rawhide (F32).
