Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 235623
GtkFileChooser lacks visual feedback in text field when selecting file
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Take any application which uses the GtkFileChooser widget, e.g. Gimp, and (what
it takes to) open up the "Save as..." dialogue. Provided the current folder is
not empty and the filter is not excluding them, it should be possible to select
a file from the file-list.
In FC5 this resulted in the selected name being presented in the top "Name:"
text widget (i.e. where the filename is entered) for easy change of similar
names or over-writing existing files. However, now in FC6 this does not happen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@luke tmp]# rpm -q gimp libgnomeui
Steps to Reproduce:
The text filed stays blank (or "Untitled" for Gimp).
The selected name appears in the top "Name:" text field.
As this did not happen in FC5, I can only asume that this happened in the
transition to FC6 and since both use the same version of the Gimp, version for
[root@leia rpm]# rpm -q gimp libgnomeui
I can only asume that this is related to the libgnomeui package - I may be
wrong though. However, this behaviour is also identical in gedit.
We no longer support Fedora Core 6 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state. I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?
