konqueror: Cannot copy and paste in a single window
Last modified: 2008-05-09 13:28:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Copying a file in konqueror and then changing directory, it is not possible to
paste that file. Copying and pasting between a split view or two windows still
Apparently fixed in a later revision.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
That bug report specifies a huge range of revisions and the fix is somewhere in
it. I'm trying to identify the exact commit which fixed it.
Is a file selected when you try to paste? If so, it's probably this:
That fix appears not to have been backported to 4.0. :-( Make sure you don't
select a file when pasting and it will work.
Is that version of the code in the current codebase?
If not, then this is not the behaviour of the bug I am experiencing. I have
tried not selecting anything in the destination, it makes no difference for me.
Open a Konqueror window, select a file, either use a menu to select copy or hit
Control-V doesn't work in that same window.
If I change to a different directory. On the menus, the text of the action is
correct (1 file, 2 files, etc) but they action is greyed out.
If I have a separate Konqueror window open I can switch focus to that window and
Control-V works, and appears in the context menus.
791354 appears to be a good candidate:
Revision 791354 is the fix for kde#159862, which you say is not the issue
you're encountering, so no, that's not it.
I thought I saw something to do with i8ln problems causing this somehow.
Here is another bug you can look at with similar problems:
That bug is not useful in this case.
Confirmed works fine (for me) on kde-4.0.4
doh, nevermind, works in dolphin, *not* in konq.
Just tried the deselection in dolphin, that seems to work fine. I think I'll
just switch to dolphin for now.
Maybe this was our mystery fix?
(This hasn't been backported to 4.0.)
I'm not convinced it has anything to do with this bug though.
I'm of a mind to punt this closed->upstream , and wait for kde-4.1. (or
kde-4.0.5 if it happens to get fixed there).
Doesn't bother me, just brought it up to raise awareness of the issue.
fair nuf (thx for the report, as always).
