Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 266181
Nautilus will not create empty file from right-mouse menu
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:31:33 EST
Description of problem:
On desktop or in any window there is a right-mouse operation "Create Document".
I do not yet have any openoffice components installed so the submenu only has
two lines : "no templates installed" and "create empty document". The latter
appears to be an active choice but does nothing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNOME nautilus 2.19.90
How reproducible: very
Steps to Reproduce: evident from description
Actual results: nothing happens
Expected results:create an empty file called "new file" in the container that
has the focus, as in FC7
Same result if run as normal or root user, except the when starting from
terminal as unprivileged user I get this message
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gnomebreakpad": libgnomebreakpad.so: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
When starting as root there is no message. Not sure if this is related
On this date an impressive number of updates arrived. Something in that load
appears to have fixed the newfile creation problem. The messages about
"gnomebreakpad" are still present, but perhaps these are harmless.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
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 prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 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 please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
